The story of
Aquaman's early years as a member of "The Others" starts to unravel
courtesy of Geoff Johns. Using the disbanding of the ragtag team as
square one, this tale will apparently be told going backwards, while
connecting it to events in the present to move the plot forward.
Johns does a fantastic job taking Aquaman away from the water and
actually getting him to thrive in unexpected settings; at the same
time his Others are shaping up to become a hit in the new DC
The issue had it
all: explosive action, drama, mystery, and even humor thanks to the
Mera-Ya'Wara exchange. The art, the art, the art... Ivan Reis, Joe
Prado, and Rod Reis have become hands down the top artistic team not
just at DC, but in the entire industry, delivering the most visually
stunning panels page after page. With a strong story and top notch
illustrations, this one goes up there with the winners.
