    Is there a poll or something about this? Because personally I’m pretty ok with the Long Haired Beard look for Aquaman...though maybe that’s because that is how he looked in the Justice League animated series

    I donít even think Aquaman appeared enough in the show to make a mention of it being used there. Iíd argue PAD is why itís as big as it is.

    I donít mind the long hair in a story arc or 2 but i get tired of it pretty quickly too. I think itís best used when Aquamans for example been drifted out to see or been in hiding type stories than an everyday type look for the character.

    I find the long hair and even the beard more regal looking.

    After all, in medieval time (and in the Arthurian legend), kings had long hairs and sometimes beards. A common way to make sure a former king would never regain power was to actually cut his hair when he was usurped/deposed, at least under the Merovingian's dynasty, possibly the Carolingian's dynasty too.

    It seems like in the comics they've been using it to emphasize how he's less kingly since he only grew it out after he got ousted from the throne.

    Long hair doesn’t seem to be a thing most modern day Male Atlanteans seem to have either. Atleast outside Garth and now Arthur

    Personally I just find the beard and hair to be distinguishing. I think it really sets him apart from other characters when he is on panel.

    I prefer the happy medium.

    Keep the long hair and beard.
    Lose the Momoa and bring back the orange scale mail, green pants and leg fins.

    So Sejic's Aquaman then. PAD chopped that hand off so fast I can't in good conscience refer to him as PAD's Arthur.

    I say bring back the classic orange and green, and leave his beard- just give him short hair.

    I kinda wish she was blonde instead of a redhead like Mera, but I guess redheads are an endangered species so...

    Yeah, short hair with beard has somehow crept up to being my favorite look on Arthur. Even if Mera hates it.

    That said, today’s issue was probably my favorite of the new run so far. It was kind of exciting to see Arthur back in Atlantis and interacting with all the characters we haven’t seen in awhile. And while KSD has given us bits and pieces I feel like this is the first real feel of what her take on Atlantis is like. The entire hospital scene was really well done, imo. And Dolphin! Sooo great to see her.

    Of course Mera spoilers:
    ends up in a coma.
    end of spoilers I really don’t know what it is with DC and not letting those two have a long reunion lol. I’d have to go back and check future solicits but I feel like it doesn’t last long? All in all, yeah good issue. We’ve got a new baby!
