    After an extended separation DeConnick makes the reunion of Aquaman and Mera worth the wait provided they survive Manta. DeConnick stages an impressive ocean battle that artist Robson Rocha delivers in massive fashion. Im hoping DeConnick gives Rocha more of these blockbuster style moments to create as thats definitely the sweet spot of his wheelhouse. Read Full Review

A satisfying conclusion to a bloated arc with a pretty cool development that's run into the ground in the same issue that it's introduced. Forget it, Jake. That's comics. Read Full Review
