Justice League Atlantis


Right now Aquaman #7 has me excited about reading comics again.

The introduction of this new team of Atlantians that obviously operates outside of water and have their own distinctive power set is a magnificent builder to the Aquaman mythos.   

The story opens with Kahina being chased thru the jungle searching frantically for Ya'Wara to help, hide or fight with her against the merciless terror of Black Manta. At this point it's learned that Manta is hunting the members of the other league because they each hold an ancient relic of importance and in this we have our next story arch; a mystery that actually started with the defeat of the Trench. Aquaman also has a piece of the puzzle that he takes to Dr.Stephen Shin who unlocks a holographic message.
But before R2 can turn off the message, a portal burst open and a sexy amazon (Atlantian) jumps thru attacks Shin and Mera takes over the fight. This is where we see Ya'Wara use her version of mental telepathy to call her black panther for help.

Let me tell you something true believers. This is the action I've been waiting for. I put together a team and post that almost mirror this team and come to find out, I didn't have to. Geoff and his squad did it for me. In a minute Aquaman may find his way on the A list with Batman,Superman and GreenLatern. And Black Manta with the same A+..... beside Lex, Sinestro and the Joker.

    1. Ivan Reis & Joe Prado man....I don't know what to say. The art work is so detailed the color is so DREAM, dramatic so tough. It's the biggest part of the success of this book.

  2. The art is good but what's impressive is how they've opened the story. Most titles in the new 52 are wrapping up their first story arc. Aquaman is just starting. The Trench was really more of a prelude, a way to introduce the characters, now we'll get the real story. So far its been a little light hearted, the smart remarks and disrespect are gone, now Aquaman and the Others have some work to do.

  3. Now that I think about it your right and the story is building really well. I'm impressed. Aquaman is the number two book on my pull list, Batman is number three, number one as we all know is the Suicide Squad. Long Live the Squad.
