This was a good issue. I haven’t quite enjoyed this series so far but now that Abnett is leaning away from Atlantis vs. Surface World (Stories that have been done a million times before) and is doing a story that is actually interesting I am all behind it. Aquaman and Mera are investigating what is turning people into this Dead Water creature and it is even weirder than I expected as it involves a new version of water and dead remains in the ocean. This is the way an Aquaman comic should be. Crazy concepts and fun fantasy. Horror too if this issue is right. Stay away from Atlantis going to war, Abnett, it has been done to death.

Action Horror Aquaman

Aquaman teams up with the Aquamarines to solve the mystery of who the monster Dead Water is and how it came to be. I actually enjoyed this issue toward the end even though this is one of my least loved of the Rebirth books I have read so far. I think Dead Water is a scary villain as he can show up anywhere even a droplet of water is, and the way this was paced made it almost like an action horror. I am along for the ride.
