  Who knew vacation could be this exciting? Ben Tennyson and his teammates kick off a maelstrom of action when an ocean cruise brings Ben in the cross hairs of Ssserpent, who's out to find a long-lost underwater society. But does Ben's new, slightly oddball love interest harbor dark secrets of her own? Aliens, superpowers, ships and swimsuits: the perfect ingredients for high-seas adventure.

    We The Nerdy - Randy Z. Ochoa Nov 25, 2013

    This is a sufficient first issue that will satisfy fans of the animated show, but may struggle to find readers outside of that audience. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Therapy - Cody "The Thorverine" Ferrell Nov 20, 2013

    If you're a Ben 10 fan you're going to get a great new adventure. If you're a casual viewer, much like myself, you'll still get enough to enjoy here. This isn't the cleanest jumping on point, but you'll be able to follow along. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Samantha Roehrig Nov 20, 2013

    All and all, the audience for this comic is a little younger than I accepted. It may be that cutoff point where it isn't fun for me to read anymore. I dig more creative routes when speaking to the younger generation. I did like how Ben 10 offered something I just harked about in my TMNT Animated Adventures review though; the story is ongoing through multiple issues. This is a smart move, giving kids the opportunity to beg for more the next title having to know what happens next. I'll have to give it some more tries to really see if the comic gets cleverer, but for now it just seemed like more merchandise being pushed out. Read Full Review

    Perhaps this comic is trying to restart the entire Ben 10 universe and redo it. Even if that's the case, I am not very fond of the idea. And if they are trying to do that, I honestly don't think it is being taken in the right direction. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - David McIntyre Nov 19, 2013

    This is a bad comicbook. I usually try to stay positive in my reviews and really look for things to love – but I have been unable to achievethat with this book. Perhaps – PERHAPS – this book could find a suitable audience in the under-10s demographic but the lack of nuance and subtlety pull the book down to a 3/10. This is for Ben 10 mega-fans and children who enjoy the cartoon only. Read Full Review

    Comic Spectrum - Greg Bretall Nov 30, 2013

    I was hoping to be able to catch back up on Ben 10, a series I really enjoyed years ago. Unfortunately, this was not to be the case. Unless you're a diehard fan of Ben 10 and fully caught up on the current series (perhaps this is really the main audience they are going for) this comic is definitely not worth your time.
