Aquaman thought his battles against ancient Greek monsters and the powerful Swamp Thing were as macabre as life could get but hell see how wrong he was when the hideous Chimera attacks!

    Parker's run on AQUAMAN has been pretty good, with a few ups and downs, but issue #32 of AQUAMAN was brilliant. This book feels completely back on track and all the seeds Parker has been sewing for months are finally starting to pay off. Aquaman finally has a foe that can go toe-to-toe with him, that isn't Black Manta or Ocean Master, and Mera is having her own adventures, which rival the awesomeness of her husband's. This is easily the best issue of the run, and fans of the series who have been reading month-to-month will love this issue. Read Full Review

    Shadowhawk's Shade - Abhinav Jain Jun 27, 2014

    Jeff Parker has continued to redefine Aquaman has he sees fit after considering many different options, and Aquaman #32 is one of the best examples of that. Read Full Review

    What happens when a gang of low-lives decide to threaten the Queen of Atlantis? A whole lot of ass kicking! Aquaman #32 keeps the action consistent on each page, and had me burning through my first read with eager anticipation. The new villain is really interesting, and I'm excited to see the battle continue in #33. Read Full Review

    Aquaman #32 is another great issue from Jeff Parker and I loved it.  Mera kicking ass and an honest to goodness sea monster make this the go to book for fun, unless you're Aquaman, himself.  Arthur is up to his eyeballs in trouble and I can't wait to see how he gets out of it.  Also, Paul Pelletier returns to form and makes this book look like it should, which is beautiful.  Highly Recommended.

    The book becomes more cohesive in the aftermath of the Swamp Thing crossover. And the fact that Paul Pelletier is able to pencil the entire issue for a change doesn't hurt this story either. Read Full Review

    So many shades of blue! AQUAMAN stands strong for atmosphere, visuals and pacing, even if the crowded nature of multiple story arcs going on at a time costs this issue some opportunities for suspense and character development, but to be fair, I'm going to need to catch up on the series before setting that in stone.

    All-Comic - Dan Leicht Jun 26, 2014

    This issue introduces you to concepts that were brewing in issues prior and creates a potential jumping on point for interested readers. The story is very action intent and delivers on that notion. The art is explosive and tempts you to look into every little detail. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying Aquaman and Mera both, and I like that they are letting her be a significant part of the book. They're even starting to play up Tula a bit, who, before the reboot, was Aquagirl. Maybe she will be again, but with a better name. Read Full Review

    "Aquaman" #32 feels as dependable as ever, as it solidly trucks along. It's a good, solid, enjoyable book. Hopefully the crossover with "Swamp Thing" brought some new readers here (and vice versa), because I'd like to see this creative team continue with their overall plans. It's not reinventing the wheel or making me gasp in shock, but it doesn't need to either. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Joey Ulfsrud Jun 30, 2014

    Aquaman #32 is definitely a mixed bag, as the beautiful art and the potential for a great new villain are exciting, but the dialogue and periphery story just aren't there. Hopefully Chimera's future becomes a bit more exciting, as a fresh story in Aquaman is almost necessary at this point. Read Full Review

    From the underwater scenery to character facial expressions, Pelletier's art is fantastic for this book. Johns had an iconic run but I like where Parker is going with the last couple issues. I'm really enjoying the development and chemistry of Mera and Tula as well as Atlantis politics. It's a little bit "Game of Thrones" without the nudity and that's not a bad thing.

    Atlantean political intrigue, mad scientists, rampaging monsters, all drawn rather well. What's not to love here.

    This may be the best issue since Jeff Parker took over writing duties. I hope this is a good omen for this year's Aquaman, maybe the new art team just needed to get used to the water.
