They Came From The Deep

Assuming the book begins after BRIGHTEST DAY of GEOFF JOHNS & JIM LEE'S JUSTICE LEAGUE, it's great to see Johns back in AQUAMAN. Ever since his run on Blackest Night, Aquaman has been coming interesting for me. He was a zombie until he was brought back to life (again) with a second chance in Brightest Day, where he recruits his arch-enemy (Black Manta)'s son to become the new Aqualad as they fight against both Manta and Atlantean colonialists (from Xebel), and in the alternate timeline of Flashpoint he stinks most of Europe and goes to war with Wonder Woman (who was going to marry Aquaman to bring peace between two ancient civilizations until her mother killed by an "Atlantean") and her Amazons. NOW, we get to see the Sea King take on creatures from the deep, which is cool because the bottom of the ocean continues to reveal more ancient sea creatures.

When I see Aquaman I'm thinking Waterworld and the Pirates of the Carribbean. The story so far reminds something far more scarier than Jaws....PIRANHA (both the original 1978 film and the 2010 remake). By the time the first story arc is over I still wonder if Black Manta or the new Aqualad will return.

Bravo Johns. Can't wait to see what happens next.

    I had to check out Aquaman and he is awesome. In this issue we see him fight some criminals, gets lunch, and chooses to saty on land, but in the ocean something is coming. This issue was incredible and shows a better Aquaman because he's been in jokes and not called a superhero, but now he is incredible because he gets the job done, has cool powers and wants to be land to help people. The issue also shows some of his past and shows his beautiful wife Mera. Overall this is a great comic and fans ...

    Thank you Geoff Johns, thank you. I've always liked Aquaman but he was never a favorite but Blackest Night/Brightest Day really got me interested in the guy. I, as well as Geoff Johns, get how Aquaman has been the brunt of a lot of jokes over the years but seeing this reflected in this issue was AWESOME and very chuckle worthy (seriously nothing better than Geoff Johns poking fun at the fact people poke fun at Aquaman). This is a great way to reintroduce Aquaman into the comic world; Aquaman is ...
