Say Good Bye To Your Face, Black Manta

Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis #53
Written by Tad Williams
Art by Shawn McManus

Tad Williams's EXCELLENT run on Aquaman continues this issue. Yes, people this is EXCELLENT. Why aren't you reading it? It is that good. Well-written, funny, clever, has everything. Williams is writing the best Aquaman stories I have ever read while still continuing the mystery and intrigue started with Busiek's run. There was so many good things this issue that I don't know what to focus. Aquaman turning into water, Black Manta's villainous dialogue, King Shark's violent attack on Black Manta, the new Aquaman's clever escape plan...oh and Topo is still around so that is great too. The art is fantastic and fits the tone of the series perfectly. Please people, give this series a chance. I am begging you.
