Cover Review:

The first thing that hit me, the absolute first thing, was the green gloves. Aquaman himself hasn't worn green gloves for awhile, but they stick out in my mind as a sign of Aquaman. I wonder if the color will be the same in the final version of the cover? Anyway, the notion of people in tubes is a common enough one in science fiction, and Alan Davis makes this one fun. Aquaman is dynamic and wonderful as he tries to break free, and the follks in the back are each unique. I particularly like the pirate who is missing both and arm and a leg. I also see someone in a containment suit, and a guy who could be a generic fanboy. I like this one quite a bit.
