    For Aquaman death is only the beginning " he has sacrifice everything for his people and he is paying the ultimate price for it. One of the things I love about this story is the continued focus on the Old Gods and the ocean mythology. This issue is a must read, a lot of important ground work is being set up for the future of this run. Read Full Review
