    1. This was so awful. Worse than I had originally feared. Ugh. BOOOOOORING.Aquaman fights monsters!Should be great, right?Yeah, well, it wasn't.It took me a week (a WEEK!) of forcing myself to go back and read a little bit more, and a little bit more, and a little bit morejust so I could eventually tick this off my currently-reading list.I mean, there were a few moments that it didn't wholly suck, but they were few and far between.The only story that stands out as semi-passable was when Arthur and [...]

    2. I'm not real happy about the author change but I still enjoyed this. (Wonder Woman helped.)Also, I give these two permission to become BFFs:

    3. Jeff Parker, the writer of the excellent Batman ‘66, takes over Aquaman after Geoff Johns’ four-volume run, and I wish I could say Parker’s Aquaman is the equal of Batman ‘66 - but unfortunately it really isn’t. Let’s look at the subtitle because this encapsulates the main problem of this book, namely that it’s hella boring: “Sea of Storms”. Can you think of a more unimaginative, bland title for an Aquaman book? How about “Ocean of Waves”? “Fish in Water”? Sea of Storms [...]

    4. Definitely not as good as the first four volumes by Geoff Johns. I liked this well enough, though. But the attention to character that made me consider Aquaman a new favorite hero in the first four volumes is gone here. He actually comes off a little douchey in this volume. But there was good attention paid to Mera. And I liked the Wonder Woman cameo in one of the volumes. Swamp Thing felt shoved in for no reason but it was my first experience with him so I forgive that. I'm not sure if I will r [...]

    5. Jeff Parker does a decent if unspectacular job taking over for Geoff Johns. This volume got a bit to crossover heavy but still fine.

    6. Easy enough to read, and less irritating than I remember of other recent Parker works. The art is great - imaginative, clean, leaves nothing important out of the scenery.Did I enjoy this book? Well, it wasn't *painful* to read, so it's already above the median of New 52 books. It's got some fun, though only a few smiles and no real laughs, and there's some extra layers to Aquaman's world to see.Politics here feels pretty boring - as compared to what I just experienced in Hickman's Infinity, wher [...]

    7. I didn't hate this volume but it felt like a major step down from the last two volumes. So now Aquaman is king and the next big adventure begins? What could be bigger than facing a old ass ice king who used to THE KING? Oh High School Reunion! DUM DUM DUM! No but reallyat happens. We also have a few issues of Demigods escaping which brings in Wonder Women. We finally finish up the ending with Aquaman going head to head with Swamp Thing! OH SNAP CRACKLE AND A BIT OF POP! What I liked: Aquaman at [...]

    8. 'Twas barely ok. The storyline basically as ancient as this language of yore. The art was a tad better to behold. There be-eth random people in this tome. The eternal question remains: why wouldst thou doubt that squishy green creature when it takes no action? Methinks the Arthur doth protest too much.

    9. I think I can join the general consensus that this was a step down from the quality (of writing mainly ) we became accustomed to on the Johns run. The art was eye-popping, at least, and I did enjoy Arthur's high school reunion.And at last he says

    10. Where did we go wrong? This title was in my top 5, top 3 even what the hell went wrong I just don't understand how you screw up something this good like that or even DC letting it get bad as it is doesnt anyone pre read these? just kick Jeff Parker off Aquaman and let him stick to batman 66.Don't get me wrong this book is not terrible but to go from what it was in the last 4 volumes to this makes me sad. me giving this a 3 is pretty generous because I love aquaman right now, it's more like a 2.5 [...]

    11. The biggest problem with this is the change of writer and there's just no getting away from the fact that Johns had aquaman down it was a beaut. This however is just eh it's just all over the place with no real plot there's stuff happening (and honestly i couldn't tell you why) where as previous volumes had a more slicker plot it covered a volume of comics. Where as this run the plot seems done by two issues then it's something else like one minute it's wonder woman's brother, and then aquaman a [...]

    12. I really dug what Parker did here. This was such a breath of freshly oxygenated water after Johns' dull run. I know it had its fans, but The Others and the rest of the stories ruined for me what was a decent relaunch. This book's focus is on big fun. After the heavy-handed attack on the air-breathers in the end of Johns' run, it was nice to get some big fights and strange creatures in the mix, plus, everybody's favorite plant life avatar and a certain warrior.Pellitier cuts loose and draws some [...]

    15. Jeff Parker is a great replacement for Geoff Johns. This was pretty good.

    16. I hate to say this, but so far I think I have enjoyed the New 52 Aquaman even more than I have the New 52 Batman. Yes, blasphemy I know! Well, that's not entirely true as there have been Batman volumes I've enjoyed just as much, but considering there are literally about 5 times the Batman material available it's not that surprising.I have loved the art in every Aquaman volume, and and this was no different. The storyline got a little far out, as we have a race of giant monsters being freed from [...]

    17. Of course most of us knew that the quality would take a bit o a hit after Geoff John's took his leave after the last volume. So it's not much of a surprise that I was right, but it's not thrown out to the dogs just yet!So this had its good moments and it's bad moments. The worst part for me was the story with the Giant-Born. Most of it was above water and it seemed more like a Wonder Woman story, which I guess it was partly cause she turned up. The story went nowhere and didn't have any pizzaz t [...]

    18. Geoff Johns had done a wonderful job during his Aquaman run. He essentially did the same thing he had done with Green Lantern, making the character far more legitimate and serious, while really expanding on the characters individual mythology. Unlike the writers who inherited Green Lantern, after Johns, Jeff Parker is able to build upon that mythology and make it stronger. Not only that, but he adds an element of Lovecraftian style horror, by bringing in the children of the giants. Really, none [...]

    19. Geoff Johns put in some pretty good work on Aquaman, and laid down a decent foundation for any writer that would follow him. Parker might not have entirely squandered all that good work, but it's a near thing. The biggest problem is not his take on the characters, which is fine, I guess. Arthur and Mera are basically consistent with how Johns established them. The real issue with this book is that the story is dull. Giant sea creature attacks because Reasons, Aquaman defeats it. Ancient Atlantea [...]

    20. This was an enjoyable read. I am not the biggest Swamp Thing fan; still, I found the crossover to be very entertaining and quite well written. My biggest gripe with this volume of Aquaman is that it is rather humourless. When the New 52 revamped this series, it was filled to the brim with self-aware humour which made it fun, yet substantial. I'm not finding Aquaman to be fun anymore. since the Throne of Atlantis storyline began, the series has taken on too much weight and it feels like it is sin [...]

    21. There is a lot going on in this volume of the hit "Aquaman" series. Jeff Parker is doing a pretty good job fleshing out Aquaman aka Arthur Curry. I especially loved the high school reunion part of the story. There is a lot of action in this volume and the Greek mythology spilling over from Wonder Woman into Aquaman's stories is an added bonus. I feel that the New 52 Dc Comics is giving us great new takes on characters like Aquaman and Wonder Woman so that there is more to this comic universe tha [...]

    22. I don't know why this book is getting such poor reviews. Maybe it's because it follows Geoff Johns' epic run. Jeff Parker might not be a regular comic name, but he does a great job writing Aquaman into new and interesting situations and, most importantly, expanding his mythology. Definitely worth a read for the Aquaman fan!

    23. The drop off happened. Maybe because I expected it so it did or maybe I had some foresight. Either way this was not great. Not the worst thing I have read but not as good as the first four trades.

    24. So many negative reviews I made my mind up this was going to suck. Overall Jeff Parker is no Geoff Johns but this wasn't bad. I actually enjoyed some of story arcs quick and action packed. Liked the Swamp Thing crossover & Wonder-Woman team up.

    29. Great team-up between Wonder Woman and Mera. They should get their own comic together as well!

    30. While Aquaman remains one of my favorite DC characters volume 5 of his series was a disappointment. There is no real direction here. Parker seems to just try to throw as many things as he can at the reader hoping something might stick but nothing really does. He tries everything, Hercules, escaped ancient monsters, Swamp Thing, Wonder Woman, corporate gene splicers, and on and on but while these are okay as stand alones they never really add up to a whole story and the art throughout seems a lit [...]
