Two things (the first snarky and if anyone finds offensive I'll go ahead and delete the comment)

1) Why this isn't racist at all! You sure this is DC?

2) Aw, man, why do the creators love to fuck with the married couples? Stop it, just stop it!

How soon before they bring up the "you never told him?" (whatever it was that WW was alluding to) that Mera was hiding from the BN: WW mini. You just know that sequence wasn't an accident or just Rucka's whimsy.

[personal profile] neuhallidae 2010-06-03 08:18 pm (UTC)(link)
I know that most of the BN tie-ins had some editorial input, but it wouldn't be the first time a side mention got dropped after the writer who wrote it was gone.

What am I saying? It's potential for angst and disharmony, of course it'll come back.

To be fair, the time to complain about them messing with this married couple was back when they killed off Aquababy.

Which will be the next thing Arthur summons--

Oh, dammit. Now I've got a plot seed for some sort of metaphysical "closure" or something regarding this concept: Arthur will continue summoning dead sea animals until he comes to turns (ETA: terms) terms with being resurrected, and Arthur, Jr. not.

Aaron "The Mad Whitaker" Bourque; I just wanted a tasteless joke! I didn't expect an actual plausible explanation for what's going on with the guy!

The racism is elsewhere in the issue when they arbitrarily kill off another non-white character. (in this case, Jason Rusch's mother)

Well, they refer to her being dead, and she was alive (yet divorced and consindering reconciliation with his father) before.

So throw yet another non-white corpse on the fire.

"2) Aw, man, why do the creators love to fuck with the married couples? Stop it, just stop it!"

How are they fucking with Aquaman and Mera here? From what I've read of the character, this is probably the most blissful period they've had as a couple since they were introduced.

The whole point of this will be "fixing" all these problems, and then back to status quo.

Well, you could save a step and just skip this series. But then DC wouldn't make as much.

[personal profile] darkknightjrk 2010-06-04 03:16 am (UTC)(link)
Actually, I thought this was a pretty good issue, without any really bad stuff, so it's one-up on BND at the very least.

After spending several years dissecting dead seals and porpoises, I really needed to be reminded about the smell. D:

[identity profile] 2010-06-03 09:21 pm (UTC)(link)
Look on the bright side. Aquaman tore that thing apart in the water he's in right now. So zombie bits/particles are going through his lungs as he talks to Mera.
jlroberson: (Default)

[personal profile] jlroberson 2010-06-04 03:01 am (UTC)(link)
Right now I can't help thinking of this:

Interesting timing to both bring Aquaman back, and to make him like this, now. Reminds me of how I thought it was a weird coincidence that the collapse in FINAL CRISIS coincided with the economic collapse in real life.


[identity profile] 2010-06-04 03:22 am (UTC)(link)
I've actually been wondering if they'd deal with that in the Aquaman comics.

[identity profile] 2010-06-04 02:08 pm (UTC)(link)
Oh no, you remind me of the time my college lab making a dolphin specimen. D:
The smell pervaded the whole lab section, three stories in total and it stayed there for like, at least a whole week!!!
And the next year, they got a dead whale body and they left it rot in a cement cell outside the campus to collect the bones. But we still need to walk past that area to field research for botany class.....

[personal profile] iondan 2010-06-04 02:38 am (UTC)(link)

Garth despite all the time spent setting him up to be leader of the Titans and Atlantis didn't make it through Blackest Night. His wife Dolphin(?) and their child were not among the resurected during Brightest Day. And the Final Crisis Aqauman was quickly retconned into being from another Earth.

So has Atrocitus popped up yet? Shouldn't he be sending her flowers? Cards? Those clown things you squeeze when you're mad? "Dish The Fish and go with the MAN!" He could stand under her window and shout romantic things to her (With the aid of Dex-Starr, master of kitty rage and a self-proclaimed master of romance!)
