    Comic Bastards - Garrett Hanneken Apr 18, 2018

    Aquaman may be treading in its own water, but the comic is still as enjoyable from the issue that started King Rath's rule. With consistent artwork and storytelling, this epic still shows signs as being an essential read for Aquaman and comic book fans. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 18, 2018

    Although the art isnt quite up to the usual standards, Aquaman continues to deliver on this legit epic storyline that is the signature period of Abnetts run. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 20, 2018

    Aquaman #35 is another great installment from Abnetts series. There is a lot of compelling actions scenes brought to life well by the team of Rocha, Henriques, Miki, and Gho. The story nears another exciting climax with Rath gathering dark and unholy powers to unleash upon the rebellion. This comic earns a recommendation. Give it a read. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Apr 18, 2018

    While this is a step up from the last issue, I think we are ready to see the final confrontation between Aquaman and Rath. Its being stretched out a little too long in my opinion. But this issue was an exciting and action-packed issue that also had some big reveals. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 18, 2018

    In the end, this was a satisfying issue in a compelling arc that has questioned who Aquaman is, what his role in Atlantis should be, and how he will be changing as he moves forward with his life. It seems like Arthur will no longer be the king after this arc and, while it wont be the first time that has happened in the history of the character, Abnett has put Aquaman in a place, character-wise, that seems to say that hell be okay with that and wont necessarily be trying to retake the throne any time soon. That should be an interesting story moving forward, if it is allowed time to breathe and explore Arthur further. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Apr 18, 2018

    All the pages look fantastic, if different, and this remains one of DC Comics' most underrated titles. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Herv St-Louis Apr 23, 2018

    I like Robson Rochas take on Aquaman and Atlantis. His figures feel real and have enough dramatic faces for a political drama. He can draw monsters and stuff crawling underwater well too. I may mock the Mumm-Ra-like Rath but the villain does look great! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 19, 2018

    It looks great, but the problem is that few of the characters involved have been given much development or characterization. It's exciting, but it's rarely as compelling as the best Aquaman runs were. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Aaron Young Apr 18, 2018

    AQUAMAN #35 is a worthy inclusion in the omnibus Dan Abnett's work but it does not scratch the intense quality of some of his previous issues on AQUAMAN. In this issue, story and character points are largely ignored for large-scale action sequences. However, the art by Robson Rocha does provide a nice counterpoint of nuance into this comic.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 18, 2018

    All of the disparate elements from the last dozen or so issues...almost come to bear here. They're about to. I can just taste it. Something is going to happen in this comic book series soon, and when it does, you'll be laughing out of the other side of your neck, jack! Read Full Review

  • 6.0 - Matthew Mueller Apr 18, 2018

    The issue is an entertaining read, but is lacking a bit of what's made the series great in the past. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 17, 2018

    Despite my enjoyment of the art and some of the plotting, not much happens here which just continues to anger me. It's odd that we have almost an entirely new art team save for colourist Sunny Gho. Even the letterer is different! I can't help but find that curious. Read Full Review

    Bounding Into Comics - Daniel Mills Dec 31, 1969

    Aquaman #35 is more yawn than gasp. Arthur has more to him than just being the King of Atlantis. It's time to give this King more than just a crown. Read Full Review
