Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"[Throne of Atlantis] is showing many of the same qualities that make Sinestro Corps such a standout comic book event. It's dramatic, engaging, and expertly rendered."—IGN

"Romance. Superpowers. Atlantean invasions. Geoff Johns, paired with..Ivan Reis, sets up a nice starting point for the "Throne of Atlantis," balancing characterization and widescreen action with equal enthusiasm."—Newsarama

Library Journal
01/01/2014
Aquaman has been one of the breakout successes of DC's "New 52" initiative and rightfully so. DC veteran Johns has made the half-human, half-Atlantean hero into a compelling figure, admirable and powerful—haunted by guilt and torn between two worlds but determined to make a new life with his fiery-tempered lover, antagonist-turned-ally Mera. And the extraordinary work of penciller Ivan Reis and inker Joe Prado—intricately detailed, vividly expressive, and burst-off-the-page dynamic—epitomizes the idealized realism of modern superhero comics. This volume fills some holes in Aquaman's backstory as former ruler of Atlantis but deals mostly with an attack on the United States by Atlantis's current ruler, Aquaman's half brother Orm, and for the first time in the series shows Aquaman fighting alongside Superman, Batman, and the rest of the Justice League. The only disappointments here are that Reis and Prado didn't do all of the artwork and a slight air of editorial contrivance that hangs over the escalation and consequences of the Atlantis/surface world conflict. VERDICT DC is probably trying too hard to give its heroes tortured personal lives, but this is still a highly rewarding series for any superhero fan.—S.R.

    Meet the gang

    Enjoyable. It's nice to see Aqauman interact with the league he help create on a meaningful level.

    Volume 2 and Volume 3 should be made into movies, this had it all.
