A Successful Attempt To Revamp Aquaman
This comic was an obvious and blatant attempt to correct the image of Aquaman being the ‘useless fish guy.’
And it was successful.
At least to me; I never really gave Aquaman much credit before because I saw him occasionally in the cartoons, most notably on Robot Chicken where he is the butt of many, many jokes. But here he scoffs at the ridiculous notions and misconceptions about his powers and both he and Mera showcase just how powerful Atlanteans can be.
I am definitely grateful for this new perspective. Beyond the new, inventive uses of his abilities, you delve into the man behind Aquaman: Arthur Curry....and it’s intriguing. The way he grapples with his place in the world while dealing with the condescension and ridicule for being the fish guy. I liked it.
I also like that Mera was given some of the spotlight and I found her reactions to surface dwellers...satisfying. I’ll leave it at that in case you haven’t read it yet. Can’t wait to read Vol. 2!
Read this graphic novel today in one sitting. Mera reminded me of Storm from X-Men- Marvel Comics.
The calm before the storm!
