Kelly Sue DeConnick and artist Robson Rocha are taking over as writer of DC Comics' Aquaman title. In the story, Arthur Curry washes up on an island with no memory of who he is. While attempting to rediscover who he is, he meets former sea gods that have been forgotten and were also marooned on the island.

"It’s in many ways an examination of who the character is, kind of in the vein of Daredevil: Born Again and Batman Year One," said DC CCO/co-Publisher Jim Lee.

DC adds that DeConnick and Rocha's first arc will deal with Aquaman's issues with his mother, Atlanna.

No art or schedule was given by DC at the time; current Aquaman series writer Dan Abnett is solicited through September's Aquaman #40.

Of course, Warner Bros's Aquaman movie is scheduled for release December 21.

This new Aquaman creative team follows the same sort of creative changes for Green Lantern (Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp) and Wonder Woman (G. Willow Wilson and Cary Nord).
