    Scot Eaton is back and his work is clean. Its also dynamic enough. I like all of the Easter eggs that he added in the pages where there a crowds cheering. Aquaman has three regular artists but they fit well. I prefer Brad Walker but Wayne Faucher is a strong inker and he makes the art look great. Read Full Review

    I can honestly say that Im enjoying this new direction and Im enjoying this new villain hopefully he can be a good threat moving forward. Till we find out more I feel very good about this issue. No real major flaws. A nice flash forward to see what kind of threat Aquaman is going to face but also showing the progression of peace that is continuing. And Aquafans. Gotta love em.

    Comicsverse - Robert Lewis Feb 25, 2017

    AQUAMAN #17 was one of the most enjoyable, and yet frustrating reads I've gone through in a long time. It gave us drama, action, and intriguing sub-plots. It gave us just about everything a comic book fan could want out of an issue! Everything that is, except for storyline continuity at times -- in particular, between the main hero and protagonist of the story. Otherwise, this was an excellent read! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Feb 15, 2017

    Our beloved Aquaman basks in the glory of adulation and the annoyance of Warhead sending telepathic hallucinations his way. A slow burn of an issue that unfolds well and keeps the reader interested throughout. Looks pretty sweet, too. Aquaman, I think you and I could be friends! Read Full Review

    After the war with Black Manta and N.E.M.O., Warhead lacks that same threat level, but Aquaman's Rogue Gallery definitely needs some beefing up. Abnett continues to make Aquaman an enjoyable and worthwhile read. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 15, 2017

    As with any part one of a new story arc, there are lots of unanswered questions. The potential is there for a great story that moves Aquaman even further into the realm of a political thriller. It's been a theme from issue #1, and it seems that it will continue for the good of the character. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - John F. Trent Feb 15, 2017

    Aquaman #17 starts off with an action-packed flash-forward sequence, however it is confusing and perplexing. Once Dan Abnett gets past this sequence, the book moves along at a nice clip that touches on a number of themes critical to Aquaman while also advancing an intriguing plot line with a dangerous and mysterious villain. The artwork is hit or miss with some expert emotional capture; however, other panels are devoid of the emotion and appear generic and plain. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke Feb 15, 2017

    Save for a smashing opening and some interesting ideas of how Aquaman is perceived in America, this issue is too sluggish. The plot barely pushes forward with more time spent showing Aquaman disorientated or facing a similar threat over and over. Read Full Review
