Between proving himself to a world that sees him as a joke, Aquaman and his bride Mera face off against a long buried terror from the depths of the ocean
Cover: An epic cover. I love the Trident
Book: I always liked Aquaman growing up but never liked him as mutch as the popular ones. Until now . After reading this wonderfull comic book written by Geoff Johns, and illustrated by Ivan Reis and Joe Prado ( never heard of those people but they are pretty huge in the comic world).
The Aquaman jokes and Arthur being used as the laughingstock of the superheroes are present in this comic and I felt very sorry for Arthur Curry. I’m still getting bullied at school because I’m not mainstream and I read. I could connect with a fictional character .Heck that what books are for to connect even comic books .
This volume has 6 chapters or stories. Four for one plot and the last two bridges to the second volume.
A kind of summary but nothing spoilerific
Aquaman appears midtown Boston, interrupting a car chase and successfully stopping the crime in action, much to the surprise of present criminals and policemen alike.
Arthur later goes to have lunch at a seafood restaurant, in full costume. Apparently subscribing to the common misconception that

At Amnesty Bay, Aquaman recalls his childhood with his father, when Mera appears. Aquaman tells her he has decided to have new life with her, free from the responsibilities of being the king of Atlantis.
From the depths of the Atlantic ocean, the 'Trench'( monsterlike aquatic creatures) emerge, confirming their suspicion that 'there is an above'. After dragging a fisherman into the water and eating him, one of creatures declares that there is food on the surface world.
Mira , his wife and royal of Atlantis is a bad ass. She is not help less like humans think she is and still has a gentle side of her. And she is a ginger . Va Va voom
I loved the art style. If it was not color inked I would not have the same experience. I already knew than Aqua man was cool but Geoff shows how awesome and kind hearted Arthur Curry aka Aquaman is . I am exited for volume two in the future.
