The Justice League Dark…trapped in the mystic realm of Myrra! Their jailer? Blue Devil…and he wants revenge on Detective Chimp! Seems Bobo tried to magically resurrect his best friend, the original Nightmaster, but lost control of the spell and filled Myrra with zombies instead. And left Blue Devil behind to get eaten. So BD’s kinda sorta maybe got a reason to be pissed. With that in mind, will Wonder Woman and the rest of the JLD even step up to help Bobo against a raging Blue Devil? That sounds bananas to us.

So how can things get worse for the sorcery super-team? One word: dragons!

As the reluctant Queen Mera continues to work toward a peace between the surface and the sea, her rule is challenged by the former king of Atlantis, Orm the Ocean Master! But Orm is torn between his duty to Atlantis and his love for his new surface family—and both he and Mera will clash over the futures they choose to fight for!

Review: Mera: Queen of Atlantis #1

As the brutal Atlantean Civil War rages, Mera must keep the peace between the surface world and Atlantis as its newly anointed queen in exile. But when Aquaman’s brother Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, learns of his homeland’s fate, he’ll stop at nothing to return to Atlantis as its king and savior!

If you haven’t been reading Aquaman, you’ve been missing out one of the best comics DC is publishing. The series has mixed action with political maneuvering. Currently there’s been a change in leadership with Aquaman no leading a resistance against the despotic ruler and Mera is cut off from her people and now anointed queen.

In Mera: Queen of Atlantis #1 she’s recovering from some injuries as well as trying to figure out what to do next. That not only includes defending herself from an assassination attempt but also doing a little politicking. With his run on Aquaman, writer Dan Abnett consistently delivers comics that mix entertainment with politics and we see that continue here. Mera recovers, fights, and has to deal with the United States’ State Department in hopes of preventing the nation from intervening in the affairs of Atlantis. It’s a mix of the fantastical and the grounded and it’s never boring. Abnett also delivers a comic that’s easily picked up by a new reader. What they need to know is explained and laid out in a way that moves the story along as well. The flow of the comic is great.

The art by Lan Medina, ink by Richard Friend, and color by Veronica Gandini is fantastic with a style that’s fantastic to look at. But, most importantly the comic never makes Mera look like a sex object. She looks great, regal, strong, and vulnerable. The comic looks fantastic and doesn’t attempt to mimic the very distinct style currently running in Aquaman. The issue has to balance action and the more mundane scenes and it does that and then some. And being able to help deliver those shifts in emotion is the lettering by Simon Bowland which helps set the tone.

If you haven’t been reading Aquaman, you’re missing out and you might not appreciate this mini-series. What’s great though is to see Mera get the spotlight and it not being some blow off mini-series. Instead it’s a comic series that’s as important as the main one it spun out of and seems like it’ll be a must for those reading Aquaman.
