But first! Pretty art.

Every sunrise? Dude, learn to let go.

Aquaman manages to scare the monsters away and saves a puppy but people continue being mean to him. Bloody surfacers.

Oh hai dawgie.

You know, the people of the NuDCU are doing a good job at justifying their superheroes going all Wildstorm Universe on them, ie viewing them all as corrupt nuisances at best and playthings at worst.

I'm still wondering why DC think it needs to out-Marvel Marvel in representing normal people are unsympathetic superstitious tools. Is this the same world that had a Valhalla Cemetery just for Superheroes, that had Flash and Starman museums, that cleared WW in the Max Lord case before a criminal court in minutes? It doesn't seem so anymore. I miss a world where heroes are treated like...well, HEROES.

Yeah, no kidding. We get it Johns, you don't want people thinking Aquaman is lame. Of course, there's no in-universe reason for people TO think Aquaman is lame, and still harping on it three issues in is just annoying.

I'm willing to give a bit of a pass to Aquaman, not because he's Aquaman, but because they're not really acting like jerks towards him, they're just acting like idiots

I love it how everyone knows Atlantis doesn't exist in the DCU. I mean Superman exists, Batman exists, Wonder Woman exists, but the idea that a race of ocean dwellers exists, well, that's just too outré, isn't it? Even though an ocean dweller is right in front of them.

Stupid book, stupid characters, stupid writers, and stupid readers if they like this garbage!

Seriously? It's a fun book. Sure, there's one part of it that isn't great, but that doesn't make the rest of the book any less fun.


But, really, thanks for calling a bunch of people stupid for having different tastes than you. That's just swell.

So far DCNU reminds me most of early-60s DC: pretty art and shoddy stories.

And yet the vast majority of pre-reboot DCU was complained about in exactly the same way. 'Nice art, shitty stories' encompasses everything from Robinson's JLA to Rise of Arsenal and numerous other stories.

Frankly, I think properties like Batman and Wonder Woman are in far better places than they were before. Same for Action Comics and quite a few others, like Animal Man, Swamp Thing, etc.

The worst part about this writing is how juvenile this is. I mean, this is not writing for an 18-35 year old. This is aiming WAY lower. It's so simplistic. Nobody talks like that! I feel like we are going into manga territory, where everyone says what they are feeling/doing/thinking without any subtlety.
I've never been a Johns fan, but I felt like even Green Lantern had a little more nuance than this.
That being said, this is exactly as advertised: good, dumb, cool, superhero fun. Check your brain at the door.

Oy, I think you're taking a bit far.

There are plenty of manga series with much better writing than this

People being dicks and bullies...*sigh* a trend I tire of seeing in these comics lately. Makes me unsympathetic towards them.

Yeah. I mean, I get comics are largely about relating to and admiring the heroes and doing the right thing in the face of all odds, but I also like to be able to at least give a damn whether or not the common folks get saved (not least of all because they're supposed to represent me).

I'm reminded of alot of modern horror movies. You don't really care if the characters die because they are so unlikable.

Shouldn't Aquaman have a dolphin, or a manta ray, or a giant octopus as his super-pet? I'd love to see a costumed ray kicking ass with its tail.

Though the "humans are dicks to Aquaman" is starting to wear thin, it hasn't completely soured on me to watch Arthur just do what he wants to do like a boss.

I love this book, to be honest.

I really am liking this book, although I'll grant that the stupid humans condescending to Aquaman and dissing his accomplishments (which happen right the fuck in front of them) is getting tiresome. I really love that Arthur has this expression on his face like he's continuously horrified. I don't know if it's even intentional. But the art is beautiful, and Mera rocks.

Now that's interesting. The stupid Mozilla spell check system accepts that "dissing" is a known word, but not "Aquaman." Which has been in the language longer, I wonder. Well, I don't really wonder because I actually know, but it's mildly interesting. To me, anyway.
