This is a really strong first issue. While it doesn’t start quite and ground-level (sea level?) for readers not familiar with our new Aquaman Jackson Hyde, it sets up our status quo quite nicely. We learn about Jackson, his supporting cast, why Arthur Curry (the traditional Aquaman) isn’t there, and we tee up what the story is going to be.

Diego Olortegui’s characters are also really well defined. As someone who hasn’t picked up an Aquaman book in years, I appreciate that. It provides a nice sense that we’re getting to know these characters.
