“THE DELUGE” prologue! Aquaman’s mission to unite the sea and surface has taken a great leap forward. But N.E.M.O.-the secret terrorist organization-has other ideas. Black Manta deploys the agents of N.E.M.O. to provoke hostilities between Atlantis and America. The Deluge-the prophesied, all-out global war-is about to begin...

    Aquaman #11 is another chapter in a wonderful take on Aquaman that establishes the character as powerful and significant. His position as King of Atlantis makes him vulnerable in ways unlike the other super heroes in the DC Universe. This series is taking full advantage of those opportunities. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Anthony Wendel Nov 17, 2016

    Aquaman is one of those heroes everyone likes to joke about instead of giving him the proper respect he deserves. This new run has helped to showcase what he is as a hero and as a character. If more people were willing to give this story arc a read it may just help change the publics perspective on who Aquaman is as a character. Especially if the Deluge storyline is as good as this prequel is showing it to be. Read Full Review

    If issue #11 of Aquaman is merely the prelude to "The Deluge," then clearly we're in for one wild ride. Dan Abnett gets the ball rolling on his next major story arc quickly, a remarkable accomplishment given that the first third of the issue takes place in Arthur's hospital room. Read Full Review

    The Deluge prelude shows promise, but hopefully Abnett has more in store for this arc than a rehash of a popular Justice League story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 16, 2016

    The final preparations are made for what looks to be a real humdinger of a city-destroyin' slugfest! This issue reads a little slow, but we learn some important information, and more importantly characters learn things we already knew. I've enjoyed this lull before the storm, now it's time for some good ol' over-the-top comic book action! Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Nov 16, 2016

    This issue sets the stage for a huge battle that should not be missed with issue #12. If you dig quieter character moments, or just want to start reading this series, this is a great issue. That said, it does more to set up and resolve conflicts so as to make the next issue enjoyable, rather than delivering a satisfying experience here. Read Full Review

    On the whole this felt a bit like too many plot lines being reigned in then let loose and only barely under control. Read Full Review

    It's a strong title and the developments here don't take away from that. It could have used a WOW moment for this chapter.

    Overall, a nice transition to the next big storyline. I wish the JLA component would have played out a little longer. With all of the politics going on right now, this book makes for a solid read in that department.

    Comic Book Reviews (8/10) "Great," Aquaman #11 "Condition Critical," Writer: Dan Abnett, Penciller: Philippe Briones, Plot: Aquaman has stopped Shaggy Man, and has earned the public's trust because of his heroics. Mera makes her way to the ER after hearing news that Aquaman was hospitalized. Can Aquaman and Mera find out who set Shaggy Man on Atlantis and Amnesty Bay before it's too late? It's hard to believe that Lieutenant Jo of the Royal Navy would hold back information that her father was part of NEMO. This information is revealed out of nowhere and doesn't that mean that her father's organization almost had her killed since Black Manta was hired to destroy Spindrift Station back in issue #1 knowing that she would also be attending the grand opening of the embassy? Still this book remains one of my favorite books because of the politics involved in this book. Aquaman is still trying to figure out who was behind the attack on the Ponchartrain vessel. Briones is not Brad Walker, but his artwork still does its job of telling the story. His artwork won't wow you, but his strengths are seen from his renditions of ocean life and Atlantis. Briones does an amazing spread of Arthur talking to Lieutenant Jo under the ocean, with a backdrop of several killer whales swimming around Atlantis.
