Some thoughts about Aquaman #20
Arthur and Mera are trying to figure out the mystery behind the creature but the truth continues to avoid them and it might be too late already.
This was mostly a transition issue and is shows some weaknesses.
Dan Abnett continues his arc about Dead Water by including a mystery about the creation of the creature and how it affects other people. Is once again appreciated how he continues to develop some plot-points he created during his run here but they unfortunately don't advance the plot much.
In fact, while the characterization is still enjoyable, I felt that the story didn't progress a lot. Some mysteries are being revealed but aside from that not much happened here despite of the many scenes.
Philippe Briones handles the artwork and his style is pretty solid with a clean look and expressive characters.
Other than that, not the best chapter and I hope the next one is better.
