And Then I Read: AQUAMAN 24

Writer Geoff Johns takes some time out from the usual battles to give Arthur Curry and us readers some fascinating new information about the history of Atlantis, including a detailed look at what led to its sinking. Johns is great at this sort of thing, it all seems plausible and real, even though he’s rewriting much of what DC has said about Atlantis in the past. For instance, I imagine this negates everything in the ARION comics. I like it, though, it’s a story full of the idealistic dreams and fearful foibles of human nature that we can all relate to. Arthur himself is struggling with such issues regarding his friend Vulko, the one leading him on this path of revelations. The art by Paul Pelletier and Sean Parsons continues to be excellent.
