  1. I love this book….kudos to Geoff and crew

  2. I’ll read this for as long as Johns writes it. Stellar stuff.

  3. The end of last week’s Justice League really set up something good here for Arthur. Hope it leads to some good story lines down the road.

    • Yeah..but I hate Arthur and Hal have left the JL in less than two years….still loving everything Johns writes though.

    • I must agree about Johns. I didn’t think I would enjoy Throne of Atlantis as much as I did, but there it is.

      I would prepare yourself for a rotating cast of JL and JLA members. Arthur and Hal will return, just a matter of time. It keeps the title interesting with a rotating cast. I wouldn’t be surprised if Superman left at some point.

  4. Now that Arthur is the king …. won’t the established Atlantean nobility try to kill him off again?

  5. Just read this and it was a bit disappointing, I massively enjoyed the whole of throne of Atlantis but this wasn’t up to the level of any of the other issues in the arc, I guess it is the epilogue so you can’t expect as much but it wasn’t to the standard you generally get from Geoff Johns. And I wasn’t too hot on Paul Pelletier’s art.

  6. I really enjoyed this. For the first issue that doesn’t involve a crossover, Paul Pelletier did a great job hooking me into his style. It’s cartoony but it works for Aquaman and that two page spread of Arthur apologizing to the sea life was gorgeous. Plus Johns is setting up some nice story lines here now that Arthur is King again. Looking forward to the rest of the year if both of these guys can keep it up.


  7. Without Reis I’m back to not giving a guppy fart about Aquaman.

  8. I’m really digging Pelletier’s work. Anyone’s a tough sale following Reis, but this guy has really stepped up and impressed me.
    Johns is on a roll with Aquaman with no signs of slowing down. I really like the idea of him returning to the sea and being introduced to Atlanteans like Murk where there will obviously be friction with the new king. I like the political angles with Waller pushing a governmental agenda and Dorrance pushing an environmental crusade to save the the planet and wildlife.
    The 2 page spread was inspiring and hopeful. And to be followed by those ominous, dead eyes on the last page was really unexpected and managed to creep me out.
    I am pumped for some Aquaman.
    Make Mine Aquatic!

  9. POTW!
