    This has been a really fun and different arc than a normal Aquaman story. I like what Abnett's doing and appreciate the horror elements he's added to make this arc feel so fresh. Read Full Review

    We get a slightly horror-themed issue of Aquaman here, and it worked very well. Abnett teases an intriguing mystery and his mature, confident storytelling rubs off on the main character. Briones' art was excellent as well. Read Full Review

    Mix Aquaman with a healthy dose of 1987's The Abyss and you basically have the "H2.0" storyline. The name is a little dumb, but the execution sure isn't. Read Full Review

    Big Comic Page - Craig Neilson-Adams Apr 5, 2017

    The final pages ramp up the mystery even more by throwing a grim little curveball into the proceedings, and while this latest story definitely serves as a noticeable departure from the high-stakes political machinations of the early arc, this still remains a reasonably intriguing underwater horror diversion. Not quite Aquaman at his finest, but still a thoroughly enjoyable read. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 5, 2017

    This story is to be continued for at least another issue, which may its biggest crime. Not a wholly bad comic book, just not a lot more than what we got last issue. Maybe I shouldn't have so many expectations, but what can I say? I had a very entitled childhood. Read Full Review
