  • Aquaman #1

    Review by David Pepose
    ‘Rama Rating: 9 out of 10


    Spoiler  :
    Who’s laughing now?

    Trust me, I’ve been there. I’ve thought it, too. Arthur Curry — he’s a dude who can speak to fish. His power is to swim real fast. He wears an orange shirt. He’s nobody’s favorite, everybody’s punchline.

    So believe me when I say, I’m just as surprised as you are that Aquaman might be my favorite DC book right now. Hot off the heels of his Aquaman: Rebirth issue, Dan Abnett and Brad Walker zero in on the conflicts that drive this man of two worlds, and deliver an action-packed but ultimately character-driven first issue that might prove to be a high water mark for DC’s "Rebirth" initiative as a whole.

    Of course, Abnett knows that Aquaman is kind of a tough sell, and that’s why it’s so heartening to see him really digging deep and bringing context to the world around Arthur Curry. Sure, Arthur as a character is a little stoic, a little underdeveloped still in terms of intrinsic, interesting qualities — but no superhero is an island, and Abnett informs a lot of Arthur’s characterization by the people in his orbit. The biggest draw in this book is Arthur’s wife, Mera, who not only lends some likability to Aquaman himself, but helps draw into focus the mainthrough line of this book — that Arthur is looking to unite his dual heritages, and, in his words, “secure acceptance and understanding before it’s too late.” It’s a theme that’s gone back in superhero comic books as early as the first issues of X-Men, but Abnett doubles down by having this tie so deeply into Aquaman’s self-actualization as a whole.

    But with that kind of broad, sweeping mandate, it’s easy to get lost — and that’s why Abnett continues to anchor his story at every turn with strong bits of characterization. As readers are brought to the coastal Atlantean embassy known as Spindrift, we’re quickly introduced to characters like sardonic reporter Ray Delane or the charmingly nervous Lieutenant Joanna Stubbs of the Royal Navy, who immediately develops a fun chemistry with Atlantean guardsman Sark. By populating his story with engaging characters at the get-go, the stakes are immediately higher when Aquaman’s arch-foe Black Manta makes his inevitable attack, with a degree of precision and brutality that evokes Grant Morrison’s introduction of Prometheus way back in the pages of JLA. All mixed together, Abnett has delivered a breezy but potent debut issue, one that rewards readers of the Rebirth one-shot but doesn’t penalize people who are looking to get in on the ground floor.

    Another welcome addition to the team is artist Brad Walker, whose enthusiasm for the characters is apparent from the get-go. This is very clearly an artist who feels affection for his characters — watching Arthur and Mera casually drink coffee on their lighthouse balcony feels like a relaxed early morning moment any couple might have, down to the queen giving her husband a peck on the shoulder. Watching Stubbs and Sark grin at each other during their first meeting might be the highlight of the book to me, because it shows that Walker has the nuance to nail these very endearing, human moments, which will sell readers just as much as any bit of smart exposition. But Walker also nails the action sequences — I love the composition he brings when Black Manta attacks, with the villain really stealing the show with how dynamic he looks.

    That said, Walker does occasionally go a bit overboard in terms of his rendering — while Arthur’s pronounced eyelashes wind up making him surprisingly pretty for a mainstream superhero (not that I’m necessarily complaining — given his history, Aquaman needs all the charm he can get!), there are other moments where characters look a bit pinched or unintentionally old thanks to the lines on their faces. Colorist Gabe Eltaeb adds some nice color and bounce to his pages here, although his gradients wind up compounding some of Walker’s excess rendering.

    But if you had asked me a year ago if I would find myself looking forward to a run on Aquaman, I’d ask if you had a bridge in Atlantis to sell me — because let’s face it, if it wasn’t for his unique place in history as a founding Justice Leaguer, it’d be difficult to imagine the character lasting the test of time. He’s been mishandled and poorly written more often than not, and that’s why I think it’s so heartening to read Abnett and Walker’s take on him — it’s very much proof positive that there’s no such thing as a bad character, only bad execution. Maybe it’s karmic justice that Arthur Curry has the last laugh after all. But it’s hard not to be excited when you think about the depth of potential in this title — and best of all, Aquaman has only begun to scratch the surface.

  • Aquaman#1 è un ritorno alle origini di Arthur e devo dire che non mi dispiace, Abnett nello special di Rebirth non mi aveva convinto, ma qui buttandola sul piano politico e personale sta imbastendo un'ottima trama.
    In the end? Nothing ends, Adrian
    Nothing ever ends.

  • Aquaman #1 (Published by DC Comics; Review by Jake Baumgart; 'Rama Rating: 6 out of 10):

    There is the potential for greatness in Arthur Curry, but Dan Abnett and Brad Walker don’t offer a unique take on the character’s world in Aquaman #1. That’s not for lack of trying, however — Abnett spends plenty of time developing Aquaman’s mythos, particularly with new supporting characters at the new Atlantean embassy Spindrift, but it’s not quite enough to mask a lead that feels too stoic to really stand behind (even despite the lovey-dovey exposition by a too-complacent Mera). Meanwhile, Black Manta’s plan to ambush Arthur at the embassy feels like boilerplate superhero action, with no big twists or escalation to make this brawl feel particularly exciting or new. In terms of the visuals, Brad Walker and Andrew Hennessey’s art is expressive (if occasionally exaggerated), but doesn’t work well under Gabe Eltaeb’s colors, which come off as a bit flat, robbing this issue of a particularly dramatic atmosphere. While Abnett repeatedly hammers home his theme of Aquaman not being whole, this first issue doesn’t dig deep enough in any one direction to suggest what kind of series this is going to be, or why we might want to see this character put back together in the first place.

  • In making Aquaman the figurative bridge between land and sea, with a more literal bridge on the way, Dan Abnett succeeds in creating a balance between super-heroics and political peacekeeping. It's interesting, then, how Aquaman's usage pales in comparison to the book's ancillary characters. With the merger between worlds in play, it's Abnett's focus on those tasked with making it work that most captivates, his different-but-the-same introduction making for a relatable entry into the unfolding premise. Of course, there's still work to do on that front, and in some ways this first look reads a bit safe and familiar for all its promise. Even the late entrance of perpetual foil Black Manta fails to fully entice, as while his usage is visually exciting, his motivation reads as noticeably thin. Luckily Brad Walker's clean art style is able to mask most of these early concerns, his character models and setting bright and well detailed. It's not a total win, but there's plenty of early promise to suggest more depth beyond these initial waves. - Jeff

    Final Score:

    8.0/10

  • Letto il #1, buon numero. Le premesse per fare un bel lavoro ci sono tutte.
    Un po' troppo barocco il disegnatore.
