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.

Well I gave it a chance. Two issues in and it's clear this isn't for me. We have an English victorian leading lady of mixed race (what else COULD she be?) who despises the upper classes and wicked imperialists. She does whatever she is told by an evil vampire rabbit, while spouting every liberal cliché under the sun. All this, and the crappiest art possible.
