Aquaman #17

Warhead, the new Aquaman villain with technotelepathy powers reaches how telepathically to Aquaman to lure him into a trap. While Aquaman wants to stop the villain, he also has to be careful not to hurt the civilians that Warhead controls. Can Aquaman save the day?

This issue reminded me of the first fight between Aquaman and the NKVDemon way back in the early 1990s. Similarly, the NKVDemon attempted to kill Aquaman while he was attending a UN meeting. History has a way of repeating itself! But this story is good. The new villain is weird but interesting. I like that the secret agents and the politicians near the US President still don’t trust Aquaman! This story feels a bit quiet next to what has happened in this series before. However, it’s still filled with action and is a great jumping on point for new readers.


Scot Eaton is back and his work is clean. It’s also dynamic enough. I like all of the Easter eggs that he added in the pages where there a crowds cheering. Aquaman has three regular artists but they fit well. I prefer Brad Walker but Wayne Faucher is a strong inker and he makes the art look great.

Rating: 9 /10
