Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 5

- I've never been a DC Comics reader until recently and so far I've not been too disappointed. Aquaman has actually been one of the books I enjoy reading. On the cover we see Aquaman's brother Ocean Master in what appears to be holding somebody at submission. While not something we see in the issue it does have that bad guy domination vibe. Overall I enjoyed this issue, the art is good and the pacing doesn't seem to get interrupted when we switch to Black Manta and Amanda Waller. As for the plot, Aquaman is going to see his brother about the recent attack on the mainland. While Orm denies any involvement I believe Aquaman is still untrusting of his brother. The side story involves Manta and Waller and her attempt to recruit him for Suicide Squad. Manta refuses because he states its a death sentence and the only person that has that honor is Aquaman. This seems like a good stepping stone for the Throne of Atlantis story Arc and I will be looking forward to how it unfolds in Aquaman and Justice League.
