We first met The Others, a super-group of sorts, in issues of AQUAMAN last year, where the team of unlikely agents from around the world was retconned as one that Aquaman had been a part of some years earlier. In this book, we first see the team individually, in trouble. Seems Aquaman had given each of them Atlantean artifacts with powers (created by Atlan a thousand years ago), but they’ve suddenly stopped working. The team, including Aquaman, reforms intent on investigating this problem, despite issues that broke them up earlier. As the book ends, some force is clearly out to get them, but the final pages are a teaser for another comic that I don’t plan on reading.
Not a bad start. The script by Dan Jurgens is entertaining. He handles the characters well, including Arthur Curry. The art by Lan Medina and Allen Martinzez is excellent.
