Aquaman #5 (Uh-Oh Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Wed Feb 01, 2012 1:21 pm

Thank God, an issue with barely any Mera. That character really ticks me off. The best thing in this was the opening few pages with Aquaman just landing in the desert and realising just how screwed he was. Really good storytelling from Ivan Reis and Johns knew that it was best to keep the dialogue to a minimum. The flashback structure worked well, but I felt the issue was at it’s best in the desert. It was good that while this issue works pretty well as a standalone, it also very much built on what The Trench story set up and kept the mystery about who sunk Atlantis bubbling under the surface very nicely. The ending was very odd though, it seemed like Johns ran out of space so just shoved in a joke about Aquadog in there. It does look like next month will be a Mera focus though… that fills me dread. Why couldn’t this marriage have been erased instead of Superman’s or Flash’s?

Haven't read it yet, but I'm sure the story better when it was done in 1977.
