    Ive been a fan of Aquaman for decades and I cant think of another time Ive enjoyed his adventures this much. With this creative team at the helm, this is a must-get, cant miss whenever a new issue arrives. Its worth the wait. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Oct 20, 2017

    Thankfully, Abnett has begun to give the original Aqualad some much needed definition and this book has never looked better with Stjepan Sejic handling the art duties. Read Full Review

    Led by Seijic's artwork, AQUAMAN #29 is an action-packed issue that reminds us how awesome Aquaman's world can be. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Oct 23, 2017

    Aquaman #29 continues the story of Underworld in an interesting and effective manner. This story remains great, and I look forward to where it will go by the end. It gets a recommendation, and you should definitely hop on board the Aquaman train. Read Full Review

    Aquaman has been one of DC's best books ever since Stjepan Sejic joined the creative team, and his art once again elevates this issue to a higher level. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - James Portis Oct 30, 2017

    This series doesnt slow down. It may appear at if this issue may take a break from the Aquaman part of the story, but it does advance the narrative greatly and revealing things that will be followed up on in future issues. If you were picking up this amazing series thus far, continue to do so. If youre a newcomer, definatelty backtrack to Aquaman #25 or wait for the trade. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Dec 23, 2017

    While I liked this story very much, it is not the strongest one in the run with Stjepan Sejic. His artwork adds a lot to this story and as I have read elsewhere, Abnett should feel forever indebted to Sejic for making his work on Aquaman memorable. Read Full Review

    Aquaman is far and away Dan Abnetts best written book right now. Its exciting, inventive and full of thought-provoking twists plus great fight scenes and winning dialogue. His Rebirth run on Aquaman has exceeded his New 52 run on the series by leaps and bounds. Coupled with Stjepan Sejics lush and lovely artwork, this is a book that is always at the top of my pile on Wednesdays"and it should be at the top of yours, too. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Andy Hall Oct 18, 2017

    I'll be willing to keep on following Aquaman if they can hold him to this new way. If they can break Arthur out of the continuing repeating story; if they can find a new path for Aquaman to follow; If Aquaman can be Atlantis' inspiration instead of it's king, then maybe it will lead to more kids diving into the ocean again.

    CourtOfNerds - Kevin Carley Oct 18, 2017

    That said, the slide on the art quality should turn you away from this comic series. Its still top notch storytelling and now that long hair Aquaman is done with his emo phase, we can get into his kicking ass phase. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Oct 19, 2017

    I have a small issue with the actual characterization of Aquaman himself, but overall this issue and the arc as a whole has been a really interesting take on Atlantis and its politics. I'm really looking forward to the next issue and seeing how Abnett ties it all together. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Oct 18, 2017

    This is a very tight issue on the story front, but some of the art was lacking for me. Sejic continuously impresses me with his character work but some of the shading that he's well-known for isn't present and the art is depicted as somewhat undetailed. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Oct 18, 2017

    The three plots running in the last issue conclude in a satisfactory, if somewhat flat manner. Vulko and Ondine engage in some spectral comedy hijinks that help to break up the monotony. Elsewhere in the issue: monotony. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ned Ennion Oct 29, 2017

    As a solo issue this is a very strong chapter in the Underworld story arc, beginning the process of tying all the various factions and plot threads together in the lead up to the penultimate and final chapters of the arc, The art style is visually enjoyable to read and the writing manages to make character dialogue feel natural. Main criticisms only really fall on the Underworld story arc as a whole. Read Full Review
