And Then I Read: AQUAMAN 39

Aquaman and Mera have been on the trail of Arthur’s long-missing mother Atlanna, and they’ve found her on a remote island where she’s queen and ruler, not only of the people there but of the beasts and godlike monsters. In typical comics fashion, Arthur wants to talk to her, but instead is attacked by Atlanna, her people, and a variety of creatures. She doesn’t believe he’s her son, for starters. An awakened volcano god adds to the visual fireworks of the issue, which is mostly about fighting this time. Looks like he’s going to make even more trouble next time. Not my favorite kind of story, but an okay read.

Recommended.
