Not much happened in this issue of Aquaman, but it was still very good. It was great to get some flashbacks to Arthur Curry’s past, and to see how different he was back then. In these flashbacks he comes across much more like Namor than he does Aquaman, and considering how bad-ass Namor is, that’s no bad thing. We got a bit more information on just who The Others were too, including codenames and some indication on abilities. I’m most intrigued by the Prisoner-Of-War and his weird magic shackles, but all of them seem cool. I’m looking forward to seeing this back-story doled out, but I hope it isn’t revealed too slowly. Ivan Reis’ art was fantastic, but then that comes as no surpise, even though this was mainly an action-issue, his art made it worth the money. It’s also good to see Black Manta actually look cool, because really, the potential for him to look ridiculous is very high.
