Silencer #4 cover by John Romita Jr., Sandra Hope, and Dean White
Perhaps this has been explained better in another issue, or perhaps Dan Abnett is holding that for a reveal However, the goal is so vague and generic that it doesn't work too well as a prize for Silencer. Also, Honor and Blake's child is a tad annoying His dialogue is very much in the realm of[...]

Aquaman #35 cover by Howard Porter and Hi-Fi
A long story isn't as much a problem if you're consistently engaged, and Dan Abnett has kept me consistently engaged and excited with each new issue. That isn't to say there isn't a slight weariness building within my conscience, and I imagine others feel the same way However, this story has considerably more stamina than Black[...]

Mera: Queen of Atlantis #2 cover by Nicola Scott and Romulo Fajardo Jr.
I'm very aware that such melodrama is common to the Big Two and has been a part of Dan Abnett's Aquaman, but it feels so much more prominent in this entry. Mera: Queen of Atlantis #2 art by Lan Medina, Norm Rapmund, and Veronica Gandini Lan Medina's artwork is strong, and Ocean Master in particular looks stunning[...]

Mera Queen of Atlantis #1 cover by Nicola Scott and Romulo Fajardo Jr.

Aquaman #33 cover by Stjepan Sejic
This is the Aquaman's final stand. Aquaman #33 cover by Stjepan Sejic I cannot praise the last two arcs of Dan Abnett, Stjepan Sejic/Riccardo Federico's Aquaman enough, and Aquaman #33 brings the book to its highest crescendo yet This issue is wall-to-wall action, as our beloved Arthur Curry takes the fight to Rath's regime with the help[...]

Aquaman #32 cover by Stjepan Sejic
We also learn some of Mera's priorities in the same regard. This looks like it will be the final prelude issue before the big blowout war in Atlantis between the rebels and Corum Rath's forces, which is exciting and welcome. I say that, but I am genuinely impressed with how well Dan Abnett has paced this story[...]

Dan Abnett and I.N.J Culbard's sci-fi trilogy starring cute, anthropomorphic animals will conclude in June with Wild's End: Journey's End OGN from BOOM! Studios But despite saying End twice in the title, that doesn't mean that Journey's End is The End for Wild's End. "Both Ian and I have loved working on Wild's End — it's a particularly[...]
Titans #19 cover by Paul Pelletier, Andrew Hennessy, and Adriano Lucas
Thankfully, Dan Abnett manages to avoid that for the most part, though.
