    It's clear Patrick Gleason is more than up to the task of delivering the action that drives this book, as there are several lovely big impact visuals, from the whale body slam, to the explosion of magical energy that erupts after Aquaman lashes out at the source of the Ocean Master's spell. The art also has a level of detail that can't help but impress, as the action is not only clearly presented, but there's a wealth of background details to make one take the time to explore the underwater environment that Patrick Gleason has taken such pains to deliver. I mean every panel is full of sea life, and visual cues that the action is taking place beneath the waves, and the art does a lovely job of conveying the idea that this is an alien environment. There's also some solid emotional moments from the cold fury on the face of Aquagirl as she lashes out at the trapped Aquaman, to the murderous rage on Aquaman's face as he demands his life be returned to him.
