    When the subplot that is running through a book begins to look more engaging than the main plot, you have to start to wonder if perhaps the main plot has worn out it's welcome. The material back in Atlantis looks far more promising than the continued battle with the Thirst, and if nothing else I was glad to see a fairly sizeable chunk of this issue was handed over to dealing with this growing problem. Now the idea that the Thirst would travel to the middle of a desert to quench his thirst by feeding upon a river spirit that no longer played host to a physical river in the real world is a somewhat clever twist, and the final pages introduce a fairly impressive threat for Aquaman to deal with. However, this arc is beginning to feel a bit like a merry-go-round in that while it's an interesting show, it's not really going anywhere except around in circles. I guess what I'm trying to say here is I would like the see Aquaman put on a better show before he's defeated once again by the Thirst. Read Full Review
