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."

"Making the Justice League fit into a horror book was largely a problem of approach. What I decided to go for was a more oblique and shadowy representation of the JLA. They appear a little weirder and ominous and more frightening, unknowable entities of immense power that sit up there in space and watch over the affairs of men."
--Alan Moore, The Comics Journal 93 (Sept. 1984), 84.

"Black Manta is this wonderful mirror, dark mirror of Aquaman. And his sole purpose is to destroy Aquaman.

And I want to make Manta not just one of his great villains. Manta previously was a guy who cropped up for six or seven issues every now and then as one of his arch foes. But this is much more.

Aquaman is the key character in the comic book, but Mera and Black Manta are the other absolute co-stars. If it was a TV show, their faces would be in the credits too, because this is so much about those characters.

"Aquaman is one of the sort of big six of DC. He's not a Batman or Superman, but he's absolutely one of the first division heroes. And I've always liked him for that reason. And I like him for the same reason, I think, that I like a lot of cosmic characters, because he's not just a guy who puts on a costume — he's a guy from another world. He's a guy from Atlantis.

He's not wearing a superhero costume. He's wearing royal chain mail.

And he's not just a hero who saves people and does good deeds. He's got this responsibility. He rules Atlantis. He rules a whole nation. He controls the sea, which is two-thirds of the planet. He's the most global hero

"One of the things I was really drawn to about her is, she has such integrity and that she really is the balance in-between. Batman is that really gritty, dark hero, Superman is really -- I don't want to say almost god-like, but he's really pure. She sort of combines the best of both of them and she has a lot of character. I think the thing that drew her to me the most was her integrity and the courage of her convictions. She may not always be right, but she's going to follow through and do what she believes in, whether anyone else believes in it or not. I really love that she's willing to take a flying leap and then deal with the consequences later." - Meredith Finch

You know... I'm surprised no one has done a post on this yet. Some of the later issues sure, but the first few issues of the Finches run on Wonder Woman? Nothing. As such, let's change that and spotlight their first issue.
