Arthur Curry in a hurry
Aquaman Sword of Atlantis
Written by Kurt Busiek
Guice's artwork is great, coloring excellent. I'm just not sure another Arthur Curry is where I wanted this to go. He's a guy with a scientist father (clearly the most dangerous profession for all children to have parents in) who can breathe underwater.
am interested to see redhead Mera in Issue 2..
Issue #41 part 2 of 6...Mera!

In Part 2 of the 6-part "Once and Future," the new Aquaman begins the hunt for his missing father and fights a savage duel against an Atlantean warrior over his alliance with the much-feared King Shark! Also, the fate of Atlantis is revealed as Aquaman encounters a band of Atlanteans led by Mera!

Aquaman 40 Not much yet to go on. The premise has been established, and I don't know how seriously to take the idea that this Arthur Curry is really Aquaman but out of time? Has time gotten that screwed up in the water realm? I'm intrigued enough to keep reading (I think I'll be saying that a lot, OYL-wise), but I'm reserving judgment til I read more.

Aquaman #40 Freshly subtitled ''Sword of Atlantis,'' Aquaman gets a clever, if complicated, origin-story reboot courtesy of writer Busiek. A guy named Arthur Curry — Aquaman's original name, but this Curry is utterly unaware of this — is pulled deep down into the ocean by a creepy old guy, the Dweller in the Depths, who tells Curry he has superpowers, a destiny, and a familiar orange-and-green outfit, plus a nice sharp sword. Also featuring a talking shark. Thanks to Busiek's narrative swiftness and artist Butch Guice's realistic way with both action sequences and talking sharks, you buy into this it's-his-destiny saga immediately. A-
