“In the beginning there was the ocean...”

This compilation of the first five issues of DeConnick’s (also known for Captain Marvel, Pretty Deadly, Bitch Planet) run are fascinating. We find Aquaman with no memories and having been pulled out of the ocean on an island peopled with others stranded by the sea. But the story turns out to be much more complex--bringing in old gods, vengeance, and new beginnings. The work of the combined artists is at turns beautiful and at appropriate turns disturbing. It’s a wonderful combination. I’m very curious to see what happens next for Arthur.
