Marvel Comics Presents #12 (1989): Namorita

Namorita takes on the Atlantean drug trade.  It’s an interesting idea to see Atlantis as having the same problems as any other city.  She then vows to solve all the problems in Atlantis.  Which feels very teenager-y, in the sense that it is broadly idealistic and wholly unrealistic.

It’s not a bad short story but…I just don’t like Namorita.

Some early work by Scott Lobdell and some late work by Frank Springer.  I wonder if Marvel editorial intentionally teamed up a novice writer with a veteran artist?

Creators: Scott Lobdell, Frank Springer
