Aquaman #2

This was a week of amazing comics, but hands down, Aquaman #2 was the best.  These Trench creatures are super creepy, and they give us the scariest sequence this side of "The Fog" for the opening of the book.  Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, and Rod Reis knocked it out of the park with Mera's display of power; what a beautiful water construct.  Once past the jokes and the awkwardness regarding Aquaman's reputation, Geoff Johns gets to getting and things quickly become serious for our favorite couple.  This issue had a cinematic feel to it, not just thanks to the art, but also to the plot itself.  Johns is also starting to plant the seeds of mysteries and secrets in Arthur's early years.  More than anything, I am happy with the formal introduction of Not-Aquawoman, and the cool new effect when she is using her water-based powers.
