After running into a Kraken that guards a small town, Namora tries to convince the townspeople to move to a safer location. They say that they are unable to leave as there is a nearby area that heals them from their weaknesses. If they leave the area, their weakness returns. She decides to investigate the area.

She goes on to tell Namorita what has happened since they last met and a bit about her friends in the Agents of Atlas.

Wow, that is a really stern looking Venus. Namora goes on to discover what's causing the trouble and kick its ass (of course). It's a good issue. Not a lot happens, but it offers a closer look at Namora and what kind of person she is.

I also really like the art here. I feel that it really suits this type of story.

But Nita is alive. With Nova. In space. So they're gonna have to do this story again when she comes earthside.

A reality warping Big Bad Sphinx ran into a time snarl and ran into his younger self, younger self tried to kill old self to get two sources of ULTIMATE POWER. Old Sphinx summoned heroes from various points in the time stream (including Nova, and Namorita) who have defeated him to defeat young Sphinx. Young Sphinx summoned various gem powered beings (like Darkhawk, Moonstone etc).

They battle, old Sphinx literally eats young Sphinx, reality breaks. As the paradox collapses Rich grab's Rita as he gets snapped back to his proper place in time and he drags younger non blue Namorita to the present day.

So she's alive, also a walking paradox, and if Futurama has taught me anything its that a time matter duplicate is always doomed. DOOOOOOOOMED!

inorite? It's, like, two states away. At least give her the dignity of dying in Connecticut instead of New Jersey.

Well, for the record, this is one instance where all three women depicted have a REASON for being scantily dressed. Two of them are underwater-type heroines - you want to keep cloth down to a minimum underwater, if you want to be able to swim quickly - and the third is a (sorta) goddess of love.

Hey, I didn't think it looked porny at all! But I didn't try to correct the person either.

You DIDN'T? Shame, shame! Next time, do so at the top of your lungs while striding up and down and waving the comic around to illustrate your point. If appropriate, quote Shakespeare, with the necessary dramatic gestures. It'll get you some odd looks, but at least people will be shown the light.

Was I the only one who saw the cover and thought the issue was an in universe reference to the BP oil disaster? Cause it seriously looks like Namora is wading in oil on that cover.

I was just thinking that whatever artist drew that must've never seen a normal woman lying on her back. There'd have to be a lot of silicone in them to make them quite so prominent in a reclined position.

I have no idea of the artist. If it's a female, it's twice as funny.

Well from my readings of Hercules and Agents of Atlas I have come to the conclusion that Namora is awesome.

It makes me fuzzy inside that Namora went so quickly from "quaint historical footnote" to "kickass modern superheroine". Bill Everett would be proud.

I think the idea with how Venus is drawn is that she's supposed to be in some sort of a trance-like state, going on the theory that that's what occurs when she does her whole 'sing a song of hypnotism' dealy.
