    Parker's AQUAMAN combines a lot of new mythos with a lot of fun. He's really grasping at the idea that you can do a lot with a character but still provide a fun book, which is something a lot of comics have lost. Parker reshapes Gorilla City and gives it a direct connection to the early Atlantis, before it sank. It's a cool addition to the book, and while readers may be a tad bummed with how the story is moving, what's provided within this issue is a really good read and something that's a must read for Gorilla Grodd fans. Overall, I highly recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    "Aquaman" #37 is a wonderful exploration of a corner of the DC Universe packed with potential. In just twenty pages, Parker, Pelletier, Parsons, Beredo and Sienty give readers the latest installment of Aquaman's quest, a history lesson on Gorilla City, a fight and a few more clues in the mystery behind "Maelstrom." Aquaman has been an adventure-packed read since the relaunch of the DC Universe in 2011, and this is another fine example of why, as it packs in everything superhero readers buy comic books for, plus some gorillas for good measure.

    Aquaman #37 ends up feeling more like a detour than a destination.  It's always cool to see Gorilla City, especially it's greatest resident, Gorilla Grodd, but the Maelstrom story barely goes forward.  Paul Pelletier's art was okay and in the end, the whole issue felt like filler with a tiny bit of setup.  I hope next month gets us back on track because I'm more interested in Aquaman's quest to find his Mother than a who's who trip through the DCU.

    Remaining on his quest for truth this months Aquaman leaves readers with only more questions to the plot. With the apes filling out another piece to the puzzle, will Aquaman find his way back to the land or will he end up in somewhere unexpected. Perhaps space? Read Full Review

    There's not too much to talk about here. The fight between Aquaman and Grodd is great - showing just enough action to satisfy the purchase, while also holding back enough as a teaser for more later on. the backstory of Gorrila City is interesting, and changes how we look at the Atlanteans. Ultimately, I think we'll still view them favorably at the end of the arc, but I'm still curious where Jeff Parker is going to take this. Paul Pelletier is, of course, fantastic on art as always. The fight with Grodd, while brief, is exciting and dynamic to watch. While there are some holes in how the hive mind among the gorillas works, it's still an interesting concept, communicated largely through facial expressions. It's subtle, and well done. Overall, another great chapter of Malestrom. Highly recommended.

    A very fun face off against Gorilla Grodd with some great history created between Gorilla City and Atlantis.

    Decent if not simple story with Grodd.
