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.
