    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Dec 30, 2020

    King in Black: Namor #2 is another brilliant deep dive into the history of Marvels first superhero. This comic is not just a tie-in for a larger event, but it is also proving character development and the beginnings of relationships we thought we had known everything about. Not only is the Sub-Mariner's past revealed, but also that of the wider crossover. The art perfectly suits this underwater setting and the character designs are fantastic. The main concern one has is just how many newer Marvel readers will be interested in this story. But the murky mystery of what happened to the Swift Tide is starting to clear. Read Full Review

    This portion of the comic justifies the price of admission as a succinct and well-told superhero tale with storytelling and stylistic roots in the Bronze Age. Read Full Review

    OK - As a lifelong Namor Submariner fan, I have always been starving for more. The tie in for the King In Black saga is finally starting to clear and the artwork is phenomenal. This "travelling" issue is important but I hope the payoff really connects and helps defeat the Oil Slick enemies. The only big miss is the name "Unforgettable Stone?" How about Memory Storm or Remembrance Stone? Fun to see Namor as a hotshot teenager with Krang and Attuma. :)

    Unfortunately, this one didn't click with me. The second half was better, but this issue was such a slog. I'm hoping it picks up with issue 3. I'm not used to disliking Kurt Busiek's work at all, so that just adds to the disappointment I'm feeling.
