    Black Manta sails into its final issue keeping the same energy it's had all along, adding new levels and insights to the rough around the edges title character without sacrificing who or what he is along the way. This series shows how to go about tackling a book that is about a pretty hardcore villain while also speaking to relevant topical issues with some superhero flair. Read Full Review

    The ending comes off somewhat abrupt, but it did wrap up the subplots to a reasonable degree. Brown leaves plenty of possibilities open for further stories for Black Manta, maybe some of which will be explored in Aquamen? Read Full Review
