Aquaman #01


W: Geoff Johns
A: Ivan Reis

Yup, I’m in. I kind of figured I would be but reading through issue one put it over the top for me. This is good, really good. I’ve always felt that there was a great Aquaman book out there and Johns shows a ton of promise here. He writes this issue from the standpoint of a long-suffering fan. He references the pop culture joke that Aquaman has become and throws it right back into those critics faces. Aquaman is badass and it pours out of him here. The artwork by Ivan Reis is great as usual. He really captures the power of Aquaman and the don’t fuck with me attitude a king needs. Mera is drawn tastefully and written well and should be a nice costar to this book. The villains make only a brief appearance and show just enough menace to be a threat. This book should be one of the best of the relaunch. Go get it.
9/10
