The majority of the earth's surface is water, and Aquaman rules it all! But is it too much for just one man to protect and serve? Some Sub Diegans think so, and they've decided they want their very own guardian. But are they ready for the tougher, meaner Malrey?

    Patrick Gleason turns in another fine issue, as he strikes a pretty effective balance between exciting action and facial expressions that deftly sell the emotional beats of the writing. His ability to sell the emotions of the character is demonstrated during the scenes where Lorena begins to discover that Aquaman doesn't really look upon her as a useful ally. Her final expression makes it pretty clear that she will take some steps to make herself useful, especially since it's now been established that Geist is able to offer up superpowers. The action scenes in this issue are also quite impressive as Officer Malrey gets a fantastic debut appearance, with that introductory one page shot of the character being the highlight visual of the issue. Also while it's a throw away image I rather enjoyed the panel where Aquaman enters the water, and the only part of him that we're able to see is his hand. Read Full Review
