DC’s Aquaman title brings opposing forces together in issue 47.

As we might recall, Aquaman has amnesia. Now, a bit more self-aware, he is back in the sea, preparing for a major battle.

It’s ‘Unspoken Water’, part 5 of 5 in the current story arc written by Kelly Sue DeConnick, illustrated by Robson Rocha (pencils), Daniel Henriques (inks) and Sunny Cho (colorist).

Super spirit Namma has a plan: restart all life on earth. And ‘only’ Aquaman stands in her way!

This one has all the strengths of the ultimate Aquaman tale: talking undersea creatures, water Gods, violence and confrontations, and supernatural and superpowerful forces. The artwork is glorious: dramatic, well composed and visually stimulating.

While the battling might be a bit overwhelming and fast-paced for some, there are clearly some great dramatic moments in this issue.

DC, Aquaman #47, $3.99 for 24 pages of content. Rated Teen

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
