    For Aquaman fans, Aquaman hasn't been this good for this long since the Skeates and Aparo days. If you're not an Aquaman fan, I can only ask: "Why not?" Become an Aquaman fan"you'll be glad you did! Read Full Review

    The Deluge has been a very enjoyable read and this third chapter was the best yet. Abnett is taking Aquaman to very intriguing heights with strong indication it's only going to get better. Read Full Review

    I havent been a fan of Philippe Brioness Aquaman all the time. I think my problem is the inking. It lacks polish. And this is a shame because he draws very good figures. Still his work is solid and does not really jump out when compared to Scot Eatons. Each handle Aquaman well. But when will Brad Walker be back? Read Full Review

    Heroes Direct - Eammon Jacobs Jan 7, 2017

    The ending of the issue bring us full circle back to Black Manta and the nefarious N.E.M.O. Whilst we get a peek into their plans for the rest of the world it's likely that the King of Atlantis will put an end to it before they can even act. Our only worry is how this story will tie up. Hopefully it's not rushed, because the political aspect of this series has been one of the best parts of it without a doubt. Overall,Aquaman #14 is action packed and is a worthy addition to the series so far. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Jan 4, 2017

    Dan Abnett has crafted an incredible new direction for Aquaman, and this arc I hope is the first of many to help this series to shine. I highly suggest you pick this one up and all the previous issue in the Deluge story arc. It is becoming a definitive story in Aquaman's history. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Jan 4, 2017

    While it may have started a little slowly, this is a series which is building some serious momentum over the last half dozen or so issues, and which now stands as one of the most consistently enjoyable titles in DCs lineup. Highly recommended. Read Full Review

    First things first: this artwork is a salvation in itself, especially the full page of Mera. The story was quick to read, I found myself really enjoying this issue. For anyone who has put down Aquaman I would highly recommend picking up this Deluge arc. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Jan 4, 2017

    So we see the Aquamarines in action, and it's a little underwhelming. In the context of this story arc, this issue is decent, but alone it would read like the insane rantings of a madman. Which may be the point. All I'm saying that is if you decided 2017 is the year you start reading Aquaman, go a couple of issues back so you can understand the import of a Lion Fish/human hybrid.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jan 5, 2017

    Aquaman's woes continue in this issue as Atlantis is attacked by a group of genetically modified super-soldiers calling themselves the Aquamarines. It's a memorably wacky concept that unfortunately isn't exploited to its fullest here. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Jan 4, 2017

    Aside from Aquaman having to handle some rather mundane time suck baddies, this issue progresses the overall plot well as tensions rise. Atlantis may never be at peace with America after this issue and Abnett has done well to give him just cause for that! Read Full Review
