Namor has succeeded in his mission to the X-Men, but in doing so, has opened the floodgates of an ancient evil that has lived below the depths for hundreds of years…the Atlantean Vampire race!

    It's undeniably fun to see so many disparate elements of the Marvel universe - - Atlantis, Dracula, and the X-Men - - colliding here. Considering how Namor's the first in Marvel's long tradition of anti-heroes, I'm glad that he's got his own book again -- especially one that's reinterpreted him in the X-Men's larger mythos as the "first mutant." I'm eager to see where this book goes, but I'm hoping it'll get more in touch with the wild days of Namor's youth soon. Read Full Review

    It isn't that this is a bad book mind you… it's just not an entertaining one. While I have hope that this series will pick up steam once it starts to focus more on the main character and less on the bland vampires, I am just afraid that I will be too apathetic to care. Read Full Review

    Maybe once "Curse of the Mutants" is over, Moore and Olivetti will surprise us and break out into something a bit more interesting. Right now, though, this feels like another failed "Namor" comic just waiting to happen. Read Full Review
