About the Author
Dan Abnett lives and works in Maidstone, Kent. After graduating from Oxford, he worked for a while as an editor of comics and children's books before turning to writing full time. In the dozen or so years since then, he has written for such a diverse range of characters--including Scooby-Doo, Thunderbirds, Conan the Barbarian, The X-Men, Johnny Bravo, Batman, Rupert the Bear, Doctor Who, Mr. Men, The Terminator and Postman Pat--that he is now clinically bewildered. He created the popular series SINISTER DEXTER, which he continues to write, along with other strips, for 2000 AD, and is currently writing AQUAMAN for DC Comics as part of DC Universe: Rebirth.

Sadly, Aquaman is still a work in progress. It's the same cast of characters from New 52 but with expanded roles and back story. Which is cool because Aquaman has a stellar supporting cast. Sadly, The story is pathetic and predictable. Aquaman works for peace with the USA and a terrorist organization tries to undermine said peace. USA treats Aquaman like a terrorist leader because of an attack alleged to be by his people. It's such a common troupe that I am sick of and they even point it out in the comics. He's part of the Justice League and yet he's treated like a bad guy...Right. It's the same recycled tropes and lack of original stories that buried the character of Aquaman in the first place. Hopefully next volume changes that.
Terrible story aside, I love the art. It's much improved over New 52. I also like the fight scenes better Aquaman and Black Manta. Also the volume ends on a high note with a fight better Aquaman/Mara vs a certain member of the Justice League. It definitely made me hopeful for what happens in the next volume. All in all, This volume wasn't terrible and it certainly made me want more after I finished (already started Volume 2). I just hope that they improve on the story next time around.
