The Nice and Accurate Thoughts of Ben Eubank (re: comics)

mara1Hello! I hope everyone had a great Christmas! Obviously with the holidays, this week is super small… but so worth it! The “Throne of Atlantis” arc begins and the new Image title Mara is finally here!

Aquaman – Gotham and Metropolis are under attack from the Atlanteans! War plans drafted by Arthur and his brother years ago are put into motion and only Arthur and Mera know what’s coming next. I loved this issue and its art… Aquaman never disappoints! 5/5

Justice League – I made a mistake in my reading this week. I should have read this issue before Aquaman. Oh well… no matter. This issue sets up the “Throne of Atlantis” story by showing an apparent attack on Atlantis by the surface… and of course, this interrupts Superman and Wonder Woman’s night out. Personally, I don’t care that much for that arc but whatever, the rest of it’s good! 3/5

Mara – This first issue was everything I had hoped it would be! Mara is a young athlete idolized by a nation. She has great skill, money, sponsorships, and oh yeah… she has some sort of superpower. I really, really liked everything about this issue. There wasn’t an overwhelming introduction which was great; and the art was really very good. This is my pick of the week… go grab a copy! 5/5

Transfusion – The second part of this series has finally arrived! Vampire and human forces join together to mount an attack on the robots! This book is the perfect balance of art and words… and both are fantastic. I can’t wait for the conclusion coming in February! 4/5
