For whom the wedding bells toll, Arthur? They do not toll for thee! It’s a race to the chapel, as Mera is awake and betrothed, but who is the groom, and why isn’t he Arthur? There is a greater mystery at work, and Jackson makes a deep-seadiscovery-but not before a depth-defying battle with Orm! Speaking of Ocean Master, he’s bringing all of Dagon to the wedding ceremony, and the Seven Kingdoms will never be the same again!

    DeConnick brings it (almost) all together (where's Caille?) with Aquaman #61. If you were in doubt about this title, this is definitely time to get back to the King of the Seven Seas! It's of course fitting for Mera to be just as significant as Arthur, since their original wedding back in Aquaman #18, Volume 1- 1964, the couple have functioned best together. It's a testament to Mera's strength as a character (GO MERA!). The feel here is just perfect as political intrigue once again takes center stage. Despite the absence of Caille, my new favorite Aqua-character, I'm all in on Aquaman #61! Aquaman may not even be necessary… . Read Full Review
