Aquaman #0

It's sad to see the run of writer Geoff Johns and artist Ivan Reis (with Joe Prado inking) coming to an end soon - they've turned out some impressive work in their first year on the job, and made Aquaman one of the best of the "New 52" comics.

And finally, one of Johns' "Zero" comics sticks to the formula, here taking us back six years to a tragic moment in Arthur Curry's life - his father is dying, and he decides to discover the secrets behind his Atlantean origin.

But the ocean is a mighty big place.

This issue is really a chance for Reis to show off, as quite a few pages have no dialogue. Aquaman explores the ocean and discovers more about himself and his place in it all.

Not much else to say that wouldn't give away too much, but it's an excellent issue and a good starting point for anyone wanting to learn more about DC's premiere undersea hero.

Grade: A-

Every time Aquaman start delving into royal intrigue, the book starts to drag.
