The reason I don't like this is because we never see Aquaman get back from that alien planet. He sees a statue of himself on an alien world and now we jump back to the Amazon Jungle where he's threatening swampy looking fools for keeping secrets from him. In Entriax's defense, he didn't know about Mera and before he could explain about the prophecy, he's interrupted by Wonder Woman, who has some questions of her own, since it seems that everyone is dealing with the intruding structures of Thule all over the world. See, I love that shit. In so many superhero stories we have the title character taking care of an over the top situation and there I am wondering, where the hell are all the other heroes? Here though, we get that answer and thanks to Aquaman possessing the powers of Poseidon, Wonder Woman was able to track his god power having ass.
Bits and Pieces:
Aquaman finally steps up in this issue and becomes something that I want to read. Not only was the plot line spelled out for us, but the artist change really made this issue wonderful to look at as well. For anyone who's dropped off of this title, this may be the issue that gets you back on board and don't worry about not knowing what's going on because this issue will catch you up and at least for me, keep you on board. This is just a wonderful surprise that this series could rise out of the ashes from nowhere and be something that I'm excited about again......... Hopefully I'm not just getting over zealous here, but if the creators keep up what they're doing now, this could be something awesome in the long run.......... or until the story arc is over and we get a creative change....... Oh well, this is still a good issue.
