The King of the Seas quenches The Thirst!

    An interesting new villain, and a fairly creepy debut appearance, simply isn't enough to make me over look the fact that this issue delivers almost no real moments of excitement. I mean I understand that writers have to set up a threat before they can kick the action into gear, but this issue needed a serious kick in the pants when it came to its forward momentum, as beyond introducing the villain, showing off his power, and revealing him to be the threat to the Secret Sea, this issue accomplishes very little. Now I guess it's interesting to learn Aquaman's healing power isn't a lasting cure when it comes to the lighthouse keeper McCaffrey, and the linking of the JLA members to the ancient gods is a interesting notion, but little details simply aren't enough to carry an issue. Still, I do like the Thirst, and I look forward to his impending meeting with Aquaman, as if nothing else Aquaman could certainly stand another villain in his rogues gallery. Read Full Review
