AQUAMAN: UNDERTOW Prequel Novel Will Explore Arthur Curry's Youth Before The DC Comics Movie

A new, young-adult novel is on the way from Harper Collins which promises to explore Arthur Curry's teenage years before we meet him in James Wan's Aquaman. Hit the jump for details on what to expect!

We know that Aquaman will touch on Arthur Curry's younger days but it's now been revealed that we're getting a prequel novel which will further explore his teenage years and how he came to grips with his powers. While it will tie into the upcoming DC Comics adaptation from director James Wan, it sounds like it will focus mostly on the typical sort of content you'd expect from a young-adult novel! 

"Thirteen-year-old Arthur Curry has enough troubles to sink a ship," reads the official synopsis for the book which is titled Aquaman: Undertow. "His mom left him and his dad when Arthur was only three years old. He doesn't fit in with the other students at 
school. To them, he's just “fish boy,” a weird, freaky kid. But Arthur has a secret. Something so secret, even he doesn't know what it is."

"With the help of his only friend, Claudia, Arthur will begin to learn the truth about his mother, himself, and a legendary world that may actually exist." Chances are this novel won't have a particularly significant impact on the movie but many fans will no doubt want to check it out, especially as there's a chance it will drop some clues about what's to come on the big screen this December.
