Writer Dan Jurgens is spinning an entertaining tale involving ancient Atlantean gold, a very old family determined to get it back, and a group of off-beat heroes, led by Aquaman, bent on defying them. There’s equal measures of supernatural chills, otherworldly magic, high-orbit science and believable heroics on both sides of the struggle. Aquaman is wounded badly, so the team must come together to fill the gap, and they rise to the occasion. The plot has some interesting surprises, too. I’ve enjoyed the art of Lan Medina since his work on the very first story arc of FABLES, and it looks great here inked by Allen Martinez. I find the entire package appealing.
