    Aquaman has been painted a lot of different ways throughout his publication history, but writer Jeff Parker enjoys capturing the quiet and thoughtful core of the character in a way that allows the Atlantean king to shine. Read Full Review

    "Aquaman" #35 is yet another fine example of this title bringing out the very best in talented creators while they come together as a single creative team. Parker, Pelletier, Parsons, Beredo and Esposito each augment one another's strengths and find their own particular way to influence the story at hand. "Maelstrom" is just getting started, but this creative team has "Aquaman" #35 shaped into mid-arc form. The thought that this tale is only going to get more intense is invigorating, especially as Parker and company leave readers with a last-page revelation that launches a queen-sized mystery for Aquaman and Mera in one of DC's greatest looking and most consistently entertaining titles.

    Aquaman #35 ties up some loose ends while setting up the book for some exciting adventure.  It's no surprise that Atlantis has had a problem with King Aquaman, but this issue makes it personal in a way I didn't see coming.  I liked that, but not everything in this book had me smiling.  How Arthur deals with traitors is head scratching and the art was hit-or-miss throughout.  Even with those problems, I can still recommend this issue for what it sets up.

    I'll admit that my interest in Aquaman has waned since Geoff Johns left the title. Johns has always had a special touch. But Parker has been telling some solid Aquaman stories, which I've been reading all along. They may not be as epic as what Johns was putting out, but this is still a solid comic. Read Full Review

    I'm enjoying Aquaman, and glad to see him getting some of the respect he deserves. I'm sticking with this series and looking forward to seeing what happens next. Read Full Review

    After a rather disappointing story in "Aquaman: Future's End", it's nice to see this series getting back to what it does best. Jeff Parker really knows how to write a more introspective Aquaman. Parker's Aquaman is reflective, somber, and intelligent. He knows how to be bombastic, funny, and how to fight when he needs to, but as the king of Atlantis, he also knows how to be the politician he has to be. Because of that, this issue reads like a breeze, even though there's really not a big action scene. Each panel and page flows nicely, and there's no lagging in the pace. Add to all of that Paul Pelletier's artwork, which is fantastic as per usual. From the figures in the foreground, to the detailed architecture of Atlantis. This is the first part of a new story arc called "Malestrom", and I'm excited for the next arc. This book comes highly recommended.

    A strong start to this new arc. Pelletier is back on art duties and lets hope it is for the rest of this arc because he's fantastic. The story doesn't have action but it builds character and intrigue enough that it doesn't need it. A sweet cliffhanger helps too.
