Review: Aquaman #9

“League of His Own,” by Dan Abnett and artist Scott Eaton, finally shows the monster on land. Aquaman is advised not to go, let the heroes on the land deal with it now, but he's having no word of it. He's going to leave Atlantis, and go onto land, to make sure that no innocent lives are lost. Meanwhile, Mera is still with the Widows. They definitely aren't going easy on her, but I can't say I blame them. You want to make sure that the future queen is going to be loyal to the king and make sure she knows what is best for Atlantis. However, they could be a little nicer. I'm curious to see how Mera is going to get out of this, with or without the Widow's approval of her as the new Queen.
How this comic ends, I'm pretty sure we're going to see some members (if not all) of the Justice League. I'm curious to see which ones are going to show up and how they're going to defeat this monster. Obviously, this monster is on a mission to destroy and is letting nothing stay in his way. Aquaman is going to need more than just one member of the team to help him, that is if he is able to fight after sending this monster into space.
The Verdict: This has been the most (I think) action packed Aquaman issue so far. I'm pretty sure the next issue will be even more so.
