Aquaman issue #11 continues to tell the story of how Aquaman and Black Manta became bitter enemies. It starts off six years ago, when Arthur and his team get their enchanted weapons from Atlantis. It then takes you to where issue #10 left off. However, Aquaman knows where Manta is going thanks to the Operative. Meanwhile Manta is taking Dr. Shin with him and leaves Mera to wonder about her husband’s past.
We find that Aquaman and the Others are going back to where they got their enchanted weapons, but Aquaman wants Manta alone. He feels by leaving the team, he is saving their lives. So he lives to carry out justice. While he looks for Manta, his team looks to get help from someone close to him.
Since Aquaman knew where Manta would be, it didn’t take long to locate his nemesis. He watches to see exactly want Manta is up to. It turns out there was a 7th relic. But to find it, he needed the two relics he got from his battles with the Others. As Aquaman finds out, the Black Manta was correct about this relic and with the help of Dr. Shin, he locates the Scepter of the Dead King. This is the same enchanted weapon that sank Atlantis in the first place. So what plans does Manta have for it? Will Aquaman stop him in time? We will have to wait and see.
Aquaman continues to be a must read from the new 52 lineup. It is well written by Geoff Johns and the artwork of Ivan Reis is always out of this world! I give this issue of Aquaman a rating of 10 out of 10.
