    Aquaman #28 is a must-read. This is one of the best super comics on the market, with a veteran writer pairing with a dynamic artist to deliver a great final package. Aquaman is a unique character and this team is dialled into what is best about him and his world and we are lucky to be reading in such a great era for the title. Read Full Review

    I was excited to read Brad Walkers early issues on Aquaman but got bored when he was frequently replaced with other artists, being unable to draw a biweekly comic continually. With Stjepan Sejic, we again have a strong and distinct artist on the series. What he brings is the whole epic dimension that could only be captured by an artist not afraid of fantasy elements. Hi, is a savoury Aquaman! Read Full Review

    If your money is low this week, theres a lot of good options vying for your dollars, but Aquaman at this point is clearly worth the investment. Read Full Review

    While the story of "Aquaman" #28 is well written on its own, the artwork makes it all the greater. Read Full Review

    Aquaman #28 doesn't progress the overall narrative very much, but it offers great character moments and sets up  the climax of the story with some important revelations. Read Full Review

    Another great issue by Abnett and Sejic. This may be the weakest issue in the arc so far, but considering how great this arc has been, that isn't too bad at all. It doesn't move the storyline forward tremendously but it does have some great moments with Vulko and with Tempest. The cliffhanger makes me excited for Mera's role in the next issue.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Sep 20, 2017

    There's a lot going on in this issue, but there's really one thread that feels active, and it ain't about Aquaman. There are worse things, however, and I'll be glad to see how these different parts converge for what I hope will be a satisfying ending. We can enjoy the pretty pictures along the way.

    AiPT! - Eric Cline Sep 20, 2017

    This issue has a lot of narrative potential, but it suffers from a feeling of inadequate execution. Though the artwork also has some cons, the mostly beautiful visuals prop up an otherwise indistinct story. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Sep 20, 2017

    This is a disappointing issue, and I wholeheartedly recommend you skip it. It's just a catch-up issue, and what little happens here will definitely be explained in the next issue. Save your $4. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Sep 23, 2017

    Despite the absolute gorgeous art, the current Aquaman storyline leaves a lot to be desired. It's all fine, but there's a lack of nuance to the characters and their actions, and a real lack of scope. Read Full Review
