Aquaman: The Others
Geoff Johns, Ivan Reis, Joe Prado
Black Manta is trying to eliminate all of Arthur’s super team mates on a revenge move. Well, he’s also trying to turn a favor from somebody who wants to rule Atlantis by retrieving the Atlantean Scepter. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Dr. Shin is in abject apology mode while Arthur tries to keep Mera from thinking him a ruthless killer. That’s a lot of effort for nothing.
This was a good continuing of the Volume 1 where Aquaman tries to get some respect. I’m enjoying these. The artwork was excellent and helped convey the story. Three out of five enjoyment points for this one.
Though I included the link for you to get this from Amazon I purchased this work from my local comic book store. Haley’s Comics in Ft. Collins, CO.
When it makes sense, buy local.
Aquaman – Volume 1, The Trench
Not a traditional consumer of comicbooks I decided that I would embrace by getting started with the newly re-tuned Aquaman. I enjoyed it. The artwork is excellent and the storyline absorbs all the mockery that haters have lobbed onto this character. In this incarnation he appears to have a lifemate named Mera. She’s having issues with the tonnage of disrespect humans lather on Aquaman. Artwork on the denizens from the trench is fantastic. As Jason Momoa prepares to bring this character to life on the big screen I am delighted that Marvel will have some gritty competition and not suck down all the theater dollars for the next decade. This re-tuned Aquaman seems to be a bad ass. Make it so!
