Review

Praise for Geoff Johns' Aquaman Vol. 3: Throne of Atlantis:
"[Throne of Atlantis] is showing many of the same qualities that make Sinestro Corps such a standout comic book event. It's dramatic, engaging, and expertly rendered." IGN
"Romance. Superpowers. Atlantean invasions. Geoff Johns, paired with..Ivan Reis, sets up a nice starting point for the "Throne of Atlantis," balancing characterization and widescreen action with equal enthusiasm." Newsarama"

By Squirr-El HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 17 July 2014
Format: Hardcover
The story that runs through issues #17-19 and #21-25 of the New 52 Aquaman is collected as Aquaman Volume 4: Death of a King HC (The New 52). Note that issue #20 appears to be a ‘Villains Month’ story, featuring the creatures from ‘the Trench’.

This is another excellently scripted and illustrated non-stop action adventure, revealing more of the background history of Atlantis and its origin – as well as leaving a lot of new questions to be answered. We also meet a number of ‘old’ characters made new for the brave new world of the New 52, including Topo the octopus! We finally get to meet Mera’s people and her husband, and discover that we have a number of Kings as candidates for the title role of this volume, such as the deposed Orm, who is now facing the death penalty for his crimes against America, Mera’s husband who has taken her late father’s throne, and the original King of Atlantis, who created and then destroyed the city thousands of years ago, not to mention King Arthur himself, who is not particularly popular with his subjects, especially his army and guard units, who are still feeling loyal to Orm.

This really is an epic storyline, which, although is self contained, does leave a lot of threads dangling for future stories and the new writer coming in for the next volume. It is of the same quality of script and art as the previous volumes of this series, and shows why this Aquaman deserves to be a member of the Justice League.

As with all of the new 52 aqua man books to this point it's a good read. The only issue is this one seems to take a little longer to get going than the previous volumes but once it does the story is great. You get the history of Atlantis the background behind the weapons seen in the previous volume and a beard on aquaman. Defiantly worth purchasing.

This is an EPIC conclusion to Geoff Johns' awesome run on Aquaman and will defiantly be remembered for a VERY long time. Read this run from issue 1-25 and you will see just how awesome Aquaman can be and why he is now the real deal!!!

Aquaman is by far the most interesting title in the new 52

Geoff Johns has made aquaman cool after several years of ridicule.

The exploration of characters and the set pieces in this graphic novel are amazing.

I can't recommend this graphic novel enough and the new volume can't come quick enough.

Geoff Johns i salute you !

If I were to match Geoff Johns’ same level of effort and energy that he put into this book in this review, you wouldn’t even be reading it on the internet. It’d be scrawled on a used McDonald’s napkin blowing about an empty carpark with a mostly-used up cheap biro and it’d read “Aquaman’s a hero. And Mera 2. Bad guy fight Aq. and loses. Aquaman’s a he” (illegible).

So here are the “storylines” that happen in Aquaman, Volume 4: Death of a King: the first king of Atlantis - imaginatively called Atlan - reawakens, just because, and tries to take the throne back from Arthur for no reason. Scavenger, a Russian dude in a sub, attacks Atlantis for no reason. Mera blunders about aimlessly. There’s a whole subplot about a trio of characters - Swatt, Murk and Tula - who try to bust Orm out of jail, and then it gets forgotten about. And then it doesn’t matter anyway because Orm gets off of death row somehow. Arthur fights Atlan and wins. The end.

I don’t even know where to start with this garbage. OK: Atlan, the main enemy of the book. He’s terrible. And I don’t mean in terms of intentions, I mean the way his character is constructed. He comes out of nowhere and is instantly a major threat to Arthur and Atlantis. Then we get his ridiculous backstory from when Atlantis was still above the sea. There’s the bland loving wife and bland loving children scene that’s so phony and movie-happy-family (“Daddy, daddy, I love you!” - retch) that I couldn’t believe is still being trotted out - but then that’s the level of laziness in Johns’ writing these days so I shouldn’t really be surprised - and then something happens and he decides to SINK THE CITY.
