I really don't get the fuss about this, the art was good, very Capullo-like but the story was disappointing. There's nothing compelling about Jackson and the way Arthur is pushed aside for a character that hasn't been turning any heads in the comics (unlike his counterpart in YJ) is just unnecessary. Especially at a time when Aquaman is more popular than ever thanks to the movies. Arthur is such a more

Well, he had it all-until that training facility and half of the Atlantean palace got blown to kingdom co...

Mary Jane defeats the Savage Six in hand-to-hand combat, practically by herself, which is fundamentally unbelievable. The writing's decent and the art is pretty good, but they can't overcome the overreach of the core concept. I'm all for girl power, but not when it's demonstrated in such simplistic terms that it's essentially "she has two X chromosomes therefore she wins." Also, separate from any more

I’m kind of weirded out by the implication here—Mary Jane can take down all of these dudes at once, so how are they ever a threat to anyone?

I still think this series is caught between trying to do a sincere melodrama and trying to satirize one at the same time. It doesn't help that the "Hollywood backlot intrigue" genre is way, WAY harder than it looks.

This comic spends so much time winking at the camera that "plot" becomes an afterthought. I'm coming to believe that that's Leah Williams' signature shtick, and I don't care for it. You can't do a meaningful deconstruction of a story if you're too preoccupied to tell a story in the first place.

Really didn't like this one. Mostly because of how underdeveloped her parents are, where they don't even resemble a human being and are more an irrational, ignorant plot device to make some sort of political statement. The art was also pretty iffy.

But is that strength really coming from a benevolent goddess? Or is it the tiny fragment of the Corinthian that's taken up residence in her life whispering in her ears?

Many years ago I got hooked into the Sandman Universe. Visually spectacular along with the brilliant Neil Gaiman's excellent narrative.This reincarnation feels like an attempt by DC to resurrect their mystery, fantasy and horror titles from the 50's and 60's (House of Mystery, House of Secrets and this newly created House of Whispers) on the back of Gaiman's ideas.

The art is well done, but the story takes too long to establish itself for a #1. Lately these new DC titles have been holding back in issues #1 through #4 and then they let the author go the way they want. I won't be around to see which way this writer goes as the bait on the hook is not enough. Perhaps Vertigo needs to try something new instead of the same rehashes we have had in all forms of more
