    I'm a big Aquaman fan, so it's likely I'm more forgiving of this title than I would be of most. However, while I like the idea of Aquaman being cast out of the ocean, I would prefered the reason for this exile had been fleshed out far more than it was, and what's more I would've like to have seen the people who cast him out be portrayed in a light that wasn't quite so obvious in its presentation that they are villains, as all they are missing in this issue are the mustaches to twirl before the carry out their evil deeds. This issue is also ask the reader to accept a crisis that is put together rather poorly, as one can almost see the writer steering the situation from one stage to the next. However this issue's worst crime is it's use of Aquaman's new magic hand as a quick fix solution, as there's nothing worse than a writer who decides to craft a plot device that will allow him to have an instant easy out whenever the going gets too tough for his hero.
