Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Aquaman, DC's underwater hero, gets an overcomplicated revamp inspired by Arthurian legend in this collection. An introduction summarizes previous events: Aquaman's death, his travel back in time, a fight with an evil sorceress and the raising and re-sinking of Atlantis. After seeing this daunting list of old story lines, readers who haven't been scared away will understand the need for a character update. The book begins with Aquaman sentenced to death by his former subjects as a result of these events. They've stuck him, wounded, on a reef, and all his formerly friendly fish hate him. Never mind the logic gap in a group of sea-dwellers who hate the surface world (as hammered home in the opening dialogue) being so mad over having to live underwater that they keep trying to hunt down their former king. All of this is a prologue to establishing the new status quo, in which Aquaman fights for the Lady of the Lake and her magical healing water. (Since this is a superhero comic, the Lady is well-built and wears revealing strips of fabric.) Everything in this book is either high-volume exaggeration or sappy mystical peacekeeping. Veitch goes overboard with poetic descriptions, sea references and puns, and laughable character dialect, while the story relies too heavily on deus ex machina. The confusing art has the "camera" zooming around almost randomly. A true restart would have been a better choice than this exaggerated mishmash of the worst superhero cliches. (Dec. 2003) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Blah....fishy!

    There is a very good reason there have been so many attempts at a successful solo Aquaman series. The reason is that Aquaman just can't support his own title. The character actually isn't that interesting. His supporting cast are one note and his villains are normally pretty lame. Now all this doesn't mean all the books are bad but there just isn't enough there for longevity. Here, in I believe the sixth volume of Aquaman, the status quo changes for him and Atlantis, but its still pretty boring. You can only have so many adventures in the deep before they seem repetitive. The story by Rick Veitch is pretty bland. The art by Guichet is good and makes the undersea stuff look dynamic at times but its pretty hard to convey cool looking stuff when Aquaman is inhabiting the body of a fish who has been eaten by another fish. Overall, an average read. Par for the course for Aquaman.
