Been there, done that too many times. Same story only now it's twice a month with a some characters sprinkled in that only a handful of readers care about. Ever wonder why they haven't been featured or popped up more often before now ? Simple , they can't carry a book. Sadly "Detective" will also be part of an early crossover with the "Batman" title in the near future but after that it's off my pu more

This issue serves as a solid intro to who Aquaman is for those not familiar with the character and gets you up to speed if you didn't read the previous series.The art was fantastic and does a nice job of setting up the supporting players as well as his nemesis.

Overall I enjoyed this first chapter but it had its share of problems as well. My first issue was the pacing. It tried to accomplish a little too much over 20 pages. To me the best Superman stories are character driven plot where this seemed to be the reverse. I'm a fan of Patch Zircher and I would have liked to seen a nice 2 page splash of the new suit being revealed for the first time but all th more

Tomasi always gets the emotional tone right and Mahnkes art is a perfect fit for Superman. It's solid for only having 20 pages to set up what's about to come and bringing some closure to what just played out for the New 52 Superman.
