Some thoughts about Mera: Queen of Atlantis #5

Can Mera save Atlantis without her status as Queen?

Nereus and Orm have made a deal, one that could save Atlantis but puts Mera and others in terrible risk.

Good character work and plot progression once again thankfully.

Dan Abnett offers a new chapter where he plays with the plot-points he created in the last one, namely the fact that Nereus and his people are planning to help Atlantis under their own conditions. I really like the conversation between Mera and her old teacher which helps to develop not only their relationship but also shows their history in Xebel and creates solid worldbuilding in the meantime.

The way how the rest of the cast is portrayed is pretty solid. The deal that both Nereus and Orm have made makes a lot of sense considering their previous portrayals and thankfully Orm's new life is also put into perspective creating an appropriate inner conflict for him concerning his family and duty. The people of Xebel are also further explored and their beliefs continue to be expanded.

Lan Medina's artwork remains decent thanks to the expressive characters and clear storytelling.

Solid chapter overall, hope the conclusion is satisfying.
