I want to like this book as I've been a fan of Aquaman since I was a wee little fanboy, and it's great to see DC giving the character another shot at a monthly series. However, Rick Veitch has added elements to the character that I truly can't get excited about, as the additions that he's made largely serve to leech away any excitement this book is able to generate. I mean it's difficult to get excited about a fight, when Aquaman is able to take out his opponent simply by touching them with his new "ideal solution for any problem" magic hand. Now there's some mildly amusing moments in this issue, as Aquaman attempts to reveal his true identity to a member of his supporting cast, and one has to smile at the final request that he makes of Rodunn. However, there's also a rather awkward comedic miscue when Aquaman shows off his haircut. There's also a very clumsy bit of writing as Rick Veitch lays the groundwork for the portals into the Secret Sea, using a supporting cast member. Read Full Review
