Aquaman #3 - A Review
The Atlantean embassy has been seized by the American government in the wake of Black Manta's attack. Now, as Arthur and Mera journey to Washington D.C. to directly address the concerns of undersea aggression, Black Manta finds himself sprung from prison by NEMO - an organization with their own grudge against the Atlantean king. Yet it is an enemy close to home that is about to make Aquaman's life even more difficult....
I don't think any DC Rebirth title has surprised me more pleasantly than Aquaman. I expected the writing by Dan Abnett to be excellent and it has been, drawing off the rich history of the character while simultaneously building upon it and making it accessible to new readers. The artwork by Phillippe Brones is good, though slightly posed at times. Still, I've enjoyed this series far more than I expected to and I plan to pick it up for the foreseeable future.
