    Well, this was just a terrible idea. My least favorite issues of the New 52 Aquaman revolved around this team, and now we have not one, but two, volumes dedicated to their 'new adventures'. Grrrrreat. There's a lame steampunk villain who wants...wait for it...gold. I shit you not. And I believe he's actually supposed to be the ancestor of the Wonder Twins. But these twins aren't cute and cuddly. They're psychotic and stabby. At any rate, the dialogue was campy, the plot was long-winded, pointless Well, this was just a terrible idea.

But the rest of them? They should have called this group The Losers .

    Before the Justice League Aquaman worked with the Others, a misfit group of superheroes. Now he's back helping them once again. Get ready for ghost lands, Atlantean artifacts and legendary tales.

    3.5 Stars I didn't enjoy this one as much as the Aquaman solo series. I'm still confused about how the Others were formed, and I'm not sure if I missed the story or it just hasn't been told yet. In this volume we see another ancient enemy of Atlantis trying to recover the artifacts that are rightfully his. The story seems a bit overdone. The art is still excellent, however. Not a terrible volume, but the other Aquaman series has set a high standard that this volume didn't quite reach. 3.5 Stars I didn't enjoy this one as much as the Aquaman solo series.

When Geoff Johns first introduced The Others in his run on "Aquaman," I really took to the team. While Dan Jurgens is a good writer, the only thing I can think of is that he just didn't write this team very well. I wouldn't be able to recommend this book to anyone unless they were a fan of the character Aquaman. The Others are made up of the following team members: The Operative Ya'Wara Prisoner of War Sky Aaron Cole ISSUE-BY-ISSUE SPOILER-FILLED REVIEWS: Aquaman #20: Issue 20 slightly ties in to Aquaman's search for stolen Atlantean weapons, however The Others end up on a surprise mission. Meeting a potential new team member, Sky, and facing a new villain, the Skinwalker, The Others come together again in this one shot adventure. I still really like Operative, but while it is interesting that he is older than expected, I think it would be more interesting if that was a secret from even his team members. I like how Sky's ability to contact the ghost world has the potential to bring the dead Other team members back into the picture. Aquaman and the Others Issue #1: I’m already invested in this series, and plan to buy each of the individual issues, because I’m a big Aquaman fan. With that being said, this was not the best first issue. It brings the team together, but I wasn’t intrigued by any part of the story. I’m not sure if a non-fan of Aquaman would bother picking another issue up after this first one. I like the idea of the Others, and really enjoyed them in Aquaman’s other title. I especially like the Operative. I’m sensing a love connection between Operative’s grandson and Sky. (2.5 Stars) Aquaman and the Others Issue #2: The dead Other, Kahina the Seer, reaches out to Sky and informs her that Kahina’s sister has been kidnapped. She tasks the Others with saving her sister. Kahina’s sister, Sayeh, now has the Seer power, and it sounds like her visions are describing events that we will see in the “Futures End” event. In her vision, half-human/half-machine people are attacking, and some of them are heroes. A brother/sister combo are the ones holding Seyah prisoner, and they seem to answer to their grandfather. By the end of this issue, the Others come face-to-face with the brother/sister baddies. Aquaman was kind of lame in this issue, but Operative and Prisoner of War continue to be awesome. (2.5 Stars) Aquaman and the Others Issue #3: More boring. I wish I hadn’t preordered so many of the issues ahead of time. I’m planning to stop collecting this book ASAP. This issue featured the debut of the villain, Legend. Using what appears to be telekinesis, Legend stabs Aquaman with Arthur’s own trident. Issue ends there. (2 stars) Aquaman and the Others Issue #4: I pre-ordered this individual issue before I decided that I didn’t want to buy these issues anymore. This issue continues the trend of this series being just OK. Not really worth my time other than Aquaman is around and I like him. Vostok, who died back when the Others were first introduced, is back, but I think it is a clone of the original guy. Or maybe there’s just been a ton of clones of the same guy. (2 stars)

    A perfect example of all things being aight.

But hey, Aquaman is finally selling and if people want more where else could they have gone.... Ummm a Mera series... World: The art was fine, nothing special but it did do it's job. Above average framing and character designs. The world building here is also fine, time is spent on building the backstory for this tale and that's great, giving context and reason. However ultimately it didn't really matter cause it was about a group of characters that was fairly boring and uninteresting. I also found the world building to be a bit jumpy and choppy much like the rest of the book. Story: Overall the story is very retro feeling. It's a clear story with no surprises and is well written. However the story is also a bit choppy and jumpy, not hugely but there seems to be a feeling that every now and then scenes are missing and the story moves too coincidentally to be believable and enjoyable. I can't put my finger on it, but the book feels very 90s in it's writing. Characters: This is the biggest issue is the series. I find these characters very bland and boring. The Others consists of Aquaman, Old Batman wannabe, sad soldier, walking boobs, new walking boobs, and Aaron....zzz. Plus the villains are poorly written and boring also. I don't care about this team and therefore it's really hard for me to care about this book, and that is a very bad thing if you are DC. Aight is the word of the day here and that's all I can say. If you are an Aquaman completionist than read this, if not, don't bother. Onward to the next book!

    You know what, sure. Why not. Look, I'm not going to recommend this to anyone other than Aquaman fans. And even then, I'd only venture to suggest that his most staunch supporters take a crack at this one. The Others seemed like a neat idea when Geoff Johns introduced them in Aquaman's New 52 run.

Reading this one felt like rooting for your favourite team even though they're having kind of a rough season.

    For years, Aquaman has been the only character in the "New 52" that I've had any desire to read. Apparently, I'm not the only one, because now, Aquaman has his own spin off series. It was a decent story, but I can definitely see this series being Aquaman's Achilles' heal if the writers are not careful, and thus bring down both series.

    This story was good, but I think that the Others would make a lot more sense without Aquaman. The Others have an early 00's comic vibe to them and I think that Aquaman is too much of a classic superhero to mesh well with them. We get a super spy, his grandson, two ghost whisperers, and a jungle lady who pal around with Aquaman. I think they will end up as a footnote in comic book history.

    Aquaman is the only character I knew of. I found it hard to connect to the characters for awhile. By the end I found my self being a little more interested, but not enough for me to search out the rest of the series.

    I love Aquaman, and it's cool to see him get his own Justice League. In fact, this comic is far better than the normal Justice League has been lately.

When artifacts appear to be losing power and someone is targeting the Others, Aquaman and the Others must once again unite to stop the threat…which could be as old as Atlantis itself! Written by Dan Jurgens (Aquaman and the Others #1-5) and John Ostrander (Aquaman (5) #20 and Aquaman (5) Annual #1), Aquaman and the Others Volume 1: Legacy of Gold is part of DC Comics’ New 52 relaunch of the DC Universe. The collection features art by Lan Medina, Manuel Garcia, Geraldo Borges, and Netho Diaz. The Others premiered in Aquaman (5) #7 (May 2012) and were an early “change” to classic Aquaman history created by Geoff Johns. The Others first appearance was reprinted in Aquaman Volume 2: The Others, but this collection does contain a few of their other pre-series appearance. The new Aquaman series was fun…Aquaman and the Others was a little tedious. The big problem with this series is the Others. While Aquaman is a dynamic character and one I always felt was underrated, the Others fall into the ’80s/’90s generic team trap. The Others feel like the Outsiders or an Image team. None of the characters jump out as that interesting. I could argue that Ya’wara is kind of interesting, but she could easily have been replaced with Vixen or Rima the Jungle Girl (which DC took from Green Mansions in the ’70s). In the new world of the New 52, it didn’t seem necessary to create a new team…just use some of DC’s existing characters. The storyline for the first five issues also follows this pattern by creating a very generic supervillain in Legacy (and his descendant sidekicks Darya and Anton). The series was already a gamble since Aquaman often can’t carry his own series, and Ostrander should have utilized a bigger villain to get more initial readers. A lackluster story arc doesn’t leave me really wanting to return for another volume. Aquaman and the Others 1: Legacy of Gold is a rather bland series that feels unnecessary. The comic market is flooded and you wonder why some of these titles are greenlit since they doen’t really seem to add anything. If the series was helmed by a hot artist or writer and more experimental, I could see Aquaman and the Others making more sense, but here, it just feels unnecessary. Aquaman and the Others 1: Legacy of Gold was followed by Aquaman and the Others 2: Alignment Earth.

They were created by Geoff Johns and Ivan Reis during their run of Aquaman. This team, the Others, consists of Ya'Wara, a jungle woman in possession of an Atlantean teleportation device and who has a predatory cat as backup, Joshua Cole, aka the Operative, who possesses an Atlantean key that open anything, Prisoner of War, real name Dominick Torrez, who has Atlantean gauntlets and is haunted by the ghosts of his fallen soldier comrades, Sky Alchesay, who possesses the Seal of Clarity, and Vostok, a Russian soldier that has an Atlantean helmet. Aquaman also has a trident that goes in a set with the items the Others have. The two Aquaman issues introduce you to the characters. The meat of the story takes place in the 5 issues of Aquaman and the Others. The entire premise of those 5 issues is that someone is trying to steal the Atlantean artifacts from each member of the Others. At the end of the events in the Aquaman issues, the Others all go their separate ways. After they are each attacked individually, the Others draw together again to combat the forces that are trying to kill them and take their weapons. Writer Dan Jurgens does a pretty good job with the story. The plot kept me wanting to fly through the pages to see what happened next, but there were only a couple of the characters that I really cared about. I think Johns and Reis created some pretty cool characters, but the characters didn't seem as interesting in Jurgens' hands for some reason. While the story was cool, it wouldn't matter to me if most of the cast died. Writing gets 4 stars mostly for the plot. Lan Medina is the artist for the series. I liked Medina's art on the series Fables and what he draws here looks good, but it pales in comparison to the art Ivan Reis did Aquaman. Reis' art is superb. Medina's art is better than a lot of art out there, but just isn't up to the quality of the most elite artists in the business. Art gets 3.5 stars. The writing and art aspects of the book average out to a 3.75 star rating that I rounded up to 4 stars for Goodreads. Sure, this one had room for improvement, but it was still pretty enjoyable. It's hard for anyone to follow in the shoes of Geoff Johns, but Jurgens did a respectable job. If you're a fan of Aquaman, definitely check this one out. This series is only 2 books long so it shouldn't set you back too much money and you'll get a complete series with a cool story.

    Because Batman's busy and the Outsiders have moved on to other things (or don't exist, or are dead), we have the New 52 version, the Others. It's kind of false advertising, as Aquaman doesn't spend a whole lot of time with the team, a bunch of C-list heroes I've never heard of before. Which actually, serves as a point in its favor - there are no expectations for these characters, which means the possibility of one or more of them dying actually exists.

Which actually, serves as a point in its favor - there are no expectations for these characters, which means the possibility of one or more of them dying actually exists. Unfortunately, most of the characters come off as off-brand versions of other characters, and they all seem to get most of their abilities from a trove of items that Aquaman apparently cast off because he was too good to need them himself. Led by the Operative out of his Living Room (seriously, that's the name of the plane they fly), they end up ensnared with a millenia-old plot to steal their toys. I'm being snarky because the concept is poor. But aside from the painfully trite dialogue in the first two issues collected here, it's actually not a bad story. It's pure middle-of-the-road hero action, which means it's actually better than a large percentage of the New 52 titles. Other than the items being Deus Ex Machinas for every situation (seriously, how does a woman teleport to a place she's never even heard of before, much less know how to get to?), it sports decent team dynamics, villains that at least seem somewhat competent, even if the big bad comes out of nowhere and is dispatched with relative alacrity, and some decent action. But I've already written more than it really deserves. If you're bent on reading every New 52 book this will be a decent respite from some of the other titles, but I thoroughly doubt I'll remember anything more than the basics in a week's time.

    Not as good as the core Aquaman series (at least the first 4 TPBs), but not a total disaster. The art is better than decent, and the overall story is ok, but the details are lacking.

One particular part that perturbed me was when Aquaman got stabbed with his own trident. As the Others rush to stop the blood loss and save him, the comment is made that Aquaman's chainmail shirt kept the trident from going in too far, but when he was stabbed in the belly the tines were sticking out of his back. How much further could they have gone in than all the way thru?

    This wasn't a bad book at all.... but.... this book feels like a "saving book". Let me explain. My definition of "saving book" is when a main series isn't selling very well, they put out other titles with that character in it that aren't very good to drive up sales of the main title.
