Aquaman #25 / DC


No CCA, No MR.

The ongoing plot line in Aquaman this year has been the sinking of part of
San Diego into the ocean and the residents being turned into
water-breathers. Somehow the shock off this has been overcome quickly and
organized crime is already a problem (go figure).

We have a scene where Aquaman confronts a local drug dealer (some kind of
liquid heroin) who is caught selling to a couple who used to be TV
celebrities before the sinking. They have given all their jewels for the
drug and now the husband prostitutes the wife to the dealer. This isn't
spelled out, we simply have the husband outside upset and inside when
Aquaman barges in the wife is naked from the back and the dealer is half
dressed.

A little earlier several men are shown filing their teeth. These are the
henchmen of the deal and they attack Aquaman and his new female partner,
Lorena. One of the henchmen sink their teeth into the calf of Lorena.

There is another scene early on, its not explained in anyway. It shows a
polic officer with a machine gun, a corpse chained to his car, blood all
over. The grill of the car is a skeleton. No clue.

For some reason, it doesn't seem possible to post comments on the post above this one, but I think getting rid of the ratings is probably a good idea. For it to really be effective, it'd have to be more extensive like an HBO warning, and that is probably overkill for every review. This will force people to actually take a closer look at what is going on in the comic...

They did switch, Sorry! I email my comments in and these went at the same time, which is maybe why the comments wouldn't work on the other one. I went in to fix the problem and when I did they swapped. They have the exact same post time which is a possible cause.
