I will be repeating myself but this version of Aquaman is one of the best in years. Abnett really seem to enjoy the court politics and the fantasy elements around Atlantis. At the same time, he is very cognizant of continuity and uses Tempest and Mera very well in his story. The best part about this comic was Vulko and Ondine’s stroll through the chambers protecting Atlantean artifacts. It was smart and very funny!
I was excited to read Brad Walker’s early issues on Aquaman but got bored when he was frequently replaced with other artists, being unable to draw a biweekly comic continually. With Stjepan Sejic, we again have a strong and distinct artist on the series. What he brings is the whole epic dimension that could only be captured by an artist not afraid of fantasy elements. Hi, is a savoury Aquaman!
