I have a tendency to think about my books in terms of music. It's a really good shortcut in tone for me. Captain Marvel was Tom Petty, and Avengers Assemble was AC/DC--short, pop, fun. Pretty Deadly is Ennio Morricone. That kind of thing. So for Aquaman I was like, all right, this is Zeppelin. This is mythic and huge and sexy and ancient and visceral. Because we're talking about the ocean, right? There's so many creation myths that begin in the ocean and so many destruction myths where we return there. We come from the water, we return to the water, our bodies are water. And there's something about the heavy richness of Zeppelin and those high, screeching vocals that was like, "Oh, right, here we are. This is it."

It's very much the sort of book I can only do at Image, which tries to do everything. As well as this personal story around the cast, the whole thing basically is a Planetary-but-for-Fantasy-and-RPG deconstruction of the various elements that gave birth to the modern conception of games and fantasy. And as well as that, it's also an entirely coherent, and hopefully enchanting fantasy world summoned by Stephanie [Hans]. It's a lot. It doesn't aim low. -- Kieron Gillen

One of the things I love about the DC Universe is that they do have this history and they do have this depth and span and scope in the outline of human life. It’s kind of like environmental art. You’re going into a place. I love the fact that there are thousands of alien races out there that have maybe been seen in one issue of WORLD’S FINEST in 1970, or some bunch of characters that have only ever been seen in some 1990s comic book, and consolidating all that to say, "Oh, that happened and they’re all still here, and they all still have their own agendas, and they’re all out working and doing things in the universe," and we get to suddenly see them. -- Grant Morrison
