Go figure. They create an Aquamen title starring Arthur Curry and Jackson Hyde, only for Arthur to die (supposedly) in the pages of another book.

The cover for this issue makes it seem like it’s about the fall-out from what happens in “The Death of the Justice League.” In truth, that reaction only gets a few pages. The vast majority of the book is essentially business as usual. That’s fine for regular Aquamen readers. Not so much for Dark Crisis on Infinite Earths readers hoping to jump on.

This book seems, thus far at least, to be less about a big Crisis-level threat and more about whether Jon Kent and the other heroes can band together after the death of the Justice League. A perfectly viable premise for an event comic. However, whether it’s worthy of the Crisis name remains to be seen.

This all feels a little hollow though, as we know the League is inevitably returning.

Daniel Sampere’s art is very much worthy of a big event comic like this. He’s got a lot of characters to draw here. But his execution is on point.
