    Aquaman is back with Dan Abnett on writing duty now and the tone has seriously changed from what it was............ and goddamn, it is so enjoyable.  While we have a whole new problem rearing it's ugly head in Aquaman's world, it's almost dealt with as a non threat because of how subtly it's thrown in throughout this issue so that we could take the time and just breath and laugh with our hero and his friends.  On top of all of this we have great art throughout and while it may be a bit early to say........ I think Aquaman is back! Read Full Review

    Overall, this was a really fun issue that brought Aquaman a bit more back to his roots. Abnett is working on who Aquaman is and what he means to the DCU on a very personal level. There's also this additional story being setup that's pretty fantastic, mysterious, and terrifying. Creatures from the deep are pretty scary, so why can't this book have a little bit of that in it? Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Legacy, family, and love are heavily alluded to throughout "Aquaman" #49 and is a great change of direction for the series. Some of the best superheroes are made even greater because of their supporting cast and carefully built worlds. Abnett, Cifuentes, and Major are on their way to making "Aquaman" great again.
