  1. fuck yeah!

  2. Ya, this stuff is just outstanding. I never ever thought i’d love an aquaman book as much as i do this. Solidly in my top 5 new 52 stuff.

  3. Consistently good work from Johns and Reis keeps this as one of my most anticipated books. Loving Aquaman.

  4. If thats the cover; holy shit!! Like I said in The Flash comments this will be a great Wednesday and thanks to The Flash and Aquaman bringing up the front!

  5. Been loving this arc since Johns turned it into a mindless action book.

    • Aquaman was a complicated political thriller before? How did I miss that?!?

    • You’ve obviously not read the Atlantis Chronicles.

    • I miss the indie rom-com phrase

    • *phase

      you forgot to reference michael bay.

    • @sitara: I know I said his name about a million times in my last review. So instead of boosting his ego I won’t reference him again.

    • a fine policy.

      ya know man, i was going to let it go, but fuck it(ha! i said butfuckit). i don’t find this series to be mindless at all. if you were talkin’ about johns’ work on the first six issues of JL, then sure, i could understand all of the michael bay references.

      as it stands, i can see more than just a baseless, popcorn flick-page turner. it’s not AVX. prisoner, for example, is obviously a character with layers of complexity and the revealing cliffhanger speaks volumes. also, author has proven to be a royal, melancholy character of shakespearean proportion with a troubling past that seems to motivate him for the better. he’s not as black and white as say superman is, as is evident by his statement that they only kill as a last resort. lots of grey in aquaman’s heart.

      beyond that, the twist of shin’s confession of introducing manta in tom and author’s life for a blood sample to his own ends, was very compelling.

  6. Black Manta, hell yeah!!

  7. It’s hard to believe that this is same Johns that writes Justice League. If you’ve been enjoying this title, definitely pick up this issue. Ivan Reis. ‘Nuff Said.

    5/5

  8. Aquaman, Justice League Dark, and The Rot are all in the Amazon jungle.

    Wonder if they will bump into each other.

  9. In my opinion, the story stalled slightly save one big revelation. Even still – best of the new 52 in my opinion.

  10. Thus far, each one of these Others have shown enough potential to have their own individual titles. Prisoner of War alone could have his own series along the lines of G.I. Combat or Blackhawks. The twist between Aquaman and Manta was cr-azy, and the art as always, breathtaking.

  11. That “Mara goes to market” issue was pretty lame but this title has redeemed itself since then. Cool slight-shocker in the end and yeah, I would pick up a Prisoner of War title if it’s as interesting as this comic is getting.

  12. Great issue and as always the art is breath taking. That last page is unreal. POTW.

  13. Brilliant issue. This series is absolutely killing it! The last page is… fantastic. So so impressed with art and story. Might be my favourite book after Batman.

  14. This was great. Loved the prisoner scene. That’s a pretty original idea for a hero. Manta is so deliciously badass. The twist at the end definitely has be intrigued. I really enjoy this title.

    Another good Aquaman issue I’d like to see The Others get there own spin off book.

  16. This took the POW for me, I like this artwork and the detail. The ending was a really crazy twist, never thought of Arthur as a killer however; I can see why. Black Manta is one ruthless, murdering son of a bitch of a villian and this can not turn out without some real down and dirty blood shed. The last page really made me just say; DAMN!! Mera really has serious love for her man and she is one hot red head, A-Man you are one lucky dude. He’s got all kids of hot chicks digging him and that one chick just kills with no remorse, there is gonna be some shit going down when Mera hears about how hot they were on each other it sounds to me.

  17. I’m really enjoying the The Others, I’m hoping they aren’t all killed off and we will continue to see them in the future

  18. Should I pick this book back up? I picked up issues 1 – 6. Unfortunately I haven’t got to read any of them. I am following so many books that this series got pushed to the bottom of my stack.

    If I picked up issue #9 would I be confused? Or should I pick up issues 7 & 8 as well?
