‘Aquaman #45’ (review) at Forces of Geek

Tough to write this review, as I really, really loved what was going on in this comic, but I was wondering, “Where is my Aquaman?”

We’re merely three issues in to DeConnick’s run, but I want Arthur to know he is the King of Atlantis already!  He’s still got amnesia or face blindness or some such ailment that is making him forget he’s part of the Justice League?

The trinity of DC’s most exalted heroes are in a great place right now with creative teams. Superman has Bendis, Tom King and Peter Tomasi are exploring the titular Batman titles and now Wonder Woman, more than a full story arc in, is hitting a nice stride as G. Willow Wilson puts her stamp on Diana’s legend.

Archie Comics, as a publisher is one of the most surprisingly progressive and forward thinking in the industry.

From the gay marriage of service man Kevin Keller to the diverging timeline tale of Archie The Married Life, the Riverdale kids are mature characters not being put to waste by cheeseburger gags (though, when done right are as charming as when you read these at the barber shop or salon as a kid). 

Zombies have been popular for about 5 minutes or so I guess, so why not make a new ongoing Archie series with a horror bent?

This is more Dark Shadows the movie remake than The Walking Dead, but finally Sabrina and Salem exist in a book where spellbinding seems plausible, the dark corners of the night are gloomy, and the night of the Halloween Dance gives everyone an excuse to be dressed in costumes.

Did we mention that powerhouse Triple Shot favorite Francesco Francavilla was spotted in a cemetery near the burger joint spotting blacks? The artwork here is incredible, and people will be talking about this book all winter!
