Aquaman #3 to #7: I caught up on the last five issues in one sitting and I must say... This is a phenomenally written title. I find it to be a cut above your average comic book. It deconstructs the superhero genre with a good balance between absurdity and seriousness, and it has some actual story and substance behind the usual clichéd action. It also acknowleges the fact that Aquaman isn't the big time iconic hero that someone like Superman is and plays that up. This is the way you humanize characters. Mera's pretty hot too. And I loved that dog. Can't forget the dog. You know the writing is good when they can make one page worth of dog more memorable than the full run of most other titles.
Weird fun fact: this is written by the same guy who is "writing" Justice League. Or at least two writers who share the same name, but not the same talent.

Batman does not eat nachos.
