    Royal Blood: Part 1 last edited by yewberry on 02/02/23 07:32PM View full history

    Spinning out of the pages of X-Men (Vol 3) #1, comes an all-new series starring the world’s first mutant, Namor the Sub-Mariner. When the X-Men are confronted with a deadly vampire threat, Namor takes matters into his own hands on a mission that might bring down the entire might of the vampires on their heads…and in the process, destroy Atlantis! What lurks down below the ocean where the sun can’t reach? What he thought was a fable to scare the children of Atlantis comes to terrifying life in the form of a newly-discovered race of Atlantean Vampires. Namor’s choice, to stand with Atlantis or the X-Men, will define a new chapter in his life…or death.

    There is an eight page backup feature in this book -- An Atlas Foundation file, recorded by Namora, that basically recaps the life of her cousin, Prince Namor the Sub-Mariner. The file consists of text and pictures, and many of the characters listed below only appear in this informative backup feature.

    Oudvrou, General Kadar, Husam, Husni, Abira, and the Highlord appear in the main story of this issue.

    "Royal Blood" part 1. This is written by Stuart Moore and drawn by Ariel Olivetti. When i first heard about this new Namor on-going series coming out i was pretty excited. I must admit i've never been a Namor fan, but after the Marvels Project mini-series i became a huge Namor fan. Namor was done very well in that mini-series, and i instantly wanted more of the character. So saying i was excited about this on-going is a big understatement. The beginning of this comic we see Namor talking to an o...

    The Prince of the Deep 0

    Namor is one of the greatest characters in Marvel's awe-inspiringly huge roster. As a big fan, I always rued the fact that he didn't have an ongoing with the staying power of other Marvel A-listers. The fact that his ongoing begins with a Curse of the Mutants tie-in can be a little disconcerting to fans, but fret not! This is the Namor we know and love, and though he's giving a helping hand to the X-men, his trademark brash arrogance is intact, and the creative team here seems to have a really g...

    Namor: The First Mutant Issue 1 0

    It's a funny thing when an ongoing book starts with a tie-in. It happened a couple years back with Deadpool and Secret Invasion, and it left me with pretty much the same feeling as this issue. Disappointment. Yea, it's good, but it just doesn't feel like this is how you should introduce Namor. Namor is a fantastic character, full of opportunity to explore a realm like nothing else we've seen. Instead we get this. A decent comic with flaws that ultimately just doesn't impress me enough like I wan...
