And Then I Read: AQUAMAN AND THE OTHERS 5

This issue wraps up the initial storyline of this new title in a satisfactory if not spectacular way. We have “The Others,” a team introduced in Aquaman’s own title by Geoff Johns with an interesting mix of heroes and anti-heroes versus an ancient family wronged by equally ancient Atlanteans, who stole their sacred treasure. They fight a lot. I read this some weeks ago, and looking through it now there’s nothing that stands out about it other than an impressive double-page splash in the middle. The writing by Dan Jurgens is professional and competent, he handles the characters well, but it’s just not memorable. The art by Lan Medina is quite good, at times excellent. I can’t put my finger on any flaw in this book, I can only say it didn’t wow me. Not sure if I’ll keep reading or not.

Mildly recommended.
