I’m pulling almost 12 books from DC each month, and Aquaman is now easily in my top 3.

This issue was great throughout and I agree with the notion that Geoff Johns is excellent at making B level characters relevant again.

While he has moved towards a more action first take, there is still plenty of story being told in this issue. I loved the whole tone of the book, particularly the further development of the Others, specifically The Prisoner of War, whose panels are breathtakingly exciting and different. Interested in seeing his character and story being developed. The twist at the end literally had me ‘marking out’ as while I expected a change of sorts, I did not at all see it coming. Kudos to Geoff Johns for that.

The art work is phenomenal, but it always is. Reis is absolutely killing it and I love how he’s being given free reign to bring the characters and surroundings to life.

All in all a great book and looking forward to next issue already.
