There was just a small hope that the first issue was a joke. Bu no. This is extreme left wing feminist propaganda, designed to divide people by gender. It really is quite shocking that it is being published.

A dreadful plodding plot, creeping along like a snail. I'm not sure how much longer I can take this. It's the worst run of Aquaman for years.
The art is good though.

I feel DC have dropped the ball here. After a successful film, people trying the comic for the first time will find nothing from the film. No Atlantis, no undersea action, no supporting characters. Just a usual generic superhero-who-has-lost-his memory type of story.
