Genre: Graphic Novel, YA
After watching Aquaman last week, I thought Mera was a total badass and was stoked to have received a copy of Mera: Tidebreaker.
This story goes back to the beginning to a young Mera and Arthur. Mera wants to prove to her father that she is more than just a princess. She is a warrior.
Arthur has no idea who he truly is and is about to find out.
For me, this didn’t read like the typical DC Comics I’m used to. It felt more like it was for a much younger audience..which isn’t a bad thing. My 7 year old son is a huge DC Comics fan like I am, so this was one that he was able to enjoy as well.
Overall, I loved getting to know more of Mera’s past and meeting the teenage Arthur Curry.
Aquaman and Mera are still relatively new to me. I’ve always been more of Superman and Wonder Woman kinda gal, so this was a good introduction.
Are you a fan of DC Comics? Who’s your favourite hero or villain?
Mera is teenage royalty, heir to the throne of Xebel, the other not-so-lost colony under the sea. But Mera is destined to wear a different crown, that of Atlantis. When the inhabitants of Xebel plot to overthrow their homeland of Atlantis, Mera is sent to kill the heir to the throne, Arthur Curry. As the unrest between their colonies grows, Mera and Arthur unexpectedly fall in love…will Arthur Curry be the king at Mera’s side in Atlantis, or will he die under her blade?
