I'm really liking this title. Reis continues to deliver absolutely beautiful artwork and, say what you will about Johns, but I like how he's showing what a strong character Arthur can be, just like he did with Mera in "Blackest Night". It also has an interesting development in that all along Mera has been like "they're savage killers. Seal the Trench up", and Arthur has emphasized that "they're just trying to survive". But when there's a twist at the end, Arthur makes the hard choice, and with a somewhat impressive display of physical strength 8)

Looking forward to the setup of the next arc: "Who Sank Atlantis ?" !

This is one of the better books DC is putting out. Its hard to believe that the same guy writing this is the same guy writing that shitfest JLA book.

Still I'd give anything to have Sword of Atlantis back. That was a fun book.

Aquadog? Ugh, lame lame lame. But other than that, this was good, Aquaman and Mera’s journey into the depths was wonderfully creepy and atmospheric, and whilst it’s not normally a good idea to have your hero commit genocide, it did get across just how awesome Aquaman is. I’m kind of disappointed that the Trench have been killed off so quickly because they could have been developed further, but it looks like their deaths have led on to the story that will be the main driving force behind Johns’ run, which is exploring the history of Atlantis and how it was sunk. I’m surprised that this stuff hasn’t been explained before, Aquaman’s been around since the 40s, surely someone has done it? No? Maybe that Atlantian wizard will show up, Arion.
