I’ll admit it–I am not the biggest fan of DC’s New 52. Among the few DC titles I still enjoy, Aquaman definitely ranks in the top 3. Perhaps thats because this series didn’t necessarily start with a tabula rasa–the story still spins out of/lines up with Brightest Day, at least in my mind. Anyways, getting back to the issue at hand (lol), Aquaman #7 sets the stage for the next mystery for the King of Atlantis, while still building off the elements introduced earlier in the run (SHIN!, the deep sea trench creatures). Johns really knows how to give the reader enough action and story to keep them satisfied, given the 2.99 pricetag, and make them come back every month. This issue is no exception. Unlike his Justice League title, Johns’ really seems to have a firm grasp on the character of Aquaman and his supporting cast; in fact the sequence at the beginning was particularly exciting mainly because of Johns’ characterization of Aquaman’s rogue nemesis (mini spoiler) which served to create a genuine threat for our hero.

As expected, Ivan Reis’s art serves to further elevate Johns’ story. If you’ve read Blackest Night, you know this man is amazing.

Pick this issue up!
