Read Aquaman #7 along with the #8s for Action, Detective, JLI, Red Lanterns, Men of War, Static Shock, & Swamp Thing. Aquaman was pretty much all set up and not written in a particularly interesting manner. It was nothing bad, but nothing really worthwhile yet either. I liked certain parts of Action Comics, but on the whole this arc didn't do much for me. I did like who Clark's informant was. I didn't quite expect it. Also I did like what was done with Luthor in this the way he explained his more or less screwing everyone over. It was an interesting viewpoint. Detective Comics was ok. The story for Scarecrow was more or less a one and done, but felt like it could and probably should have been more considering the elements invovled. I did like Daniel wrote Scarecrow here. Wouldn't mind seeing him get another crack at him later. The Two-Face back read decently, not sure where its going yet thoguh I think I'm interested. Justice league International was relatively decent. I like this new group of villians forming. It seems like the perfect foil for a UN sanctioned JL. Batwing's intro could have been a little better though it wasn't bad. Not sure how he will fit on the team yet. Definitely interested in seeing where they are going with this book. Static Shock made me feel sorry for Marc Benardin. His second a last issue of Static was clearly meant to be a true new beginning the way he delves into Virgil's past and tries to set up a new high school life for him. Sucks that the book ends just as it finally began. Red Lanterns still doesn't read as well to me as I would like, but the book is improving. The current story with Abysmus is interetsign enough and I like the Earth based Red Lantern, Rankoor and how he tries to fight the rage. Swamp Thing was pretty much all about Alec getting to be badass. it felt a bit on the shor tside though as a result. It will likely read better in trade.
