Issue Review
   September 15, 2013
#64 has a solid balance between the politics of Atlantis and a case-of-the-week for our hero to get involved with.

Namor's determination to jump right in and help some fugitives is (a) admirable, and (b) badass. 7/10

  And they naked the sub "Goldmember". They love goooooooold. Especially with their shmoke and a pancake. Their cigar and a crepe.

  So Namor says it seems that Atlantis is becoming like Nazi Germany, then leaves on a mission, with the people who made it that way in charge. I wonder what the death-count will be when he gets back.
Namor really does fight a lot of women...

  We all live in a yllow submarine.
Gerber is always trying to be subversive.
Heck's action panels have no life in them.

  Seems like all-too-familiar ground here. But at least Namor is taking the fight to the oppressor, instead of having out Atlantis's hash for the umpteenth time. And maybe we'll find out what makes Virago special from the others.

And yeah, it does seem like Namor fights quite a few women. I guess the ladies can't resist getting physical with a guy in nothing but a Speedo!

I think the philosophical argument about the amphibians is interesting though. However, I see the analogy here as the US setting up concentration camps for the Japanese after the Pearl Harbor bombings, rather than Nazi Germany. The Atlanteans were merely trying to segregate them, not exterminate them.

3 stars. Interesting enough story, but a pedestrian execution.

  The aliens parked their sub in the centre of Atlantis...this is why that place keeps getting destroyed every time Namor looks away.

  So if these four are supposed to be the Fab Four riding around in their yellow submarine. I guess that makes Virago...Yoko Ono!!!
