    Outright Geekery - Thomas Hulett Jun 20, 2018

    Overall, I just don't see where you can go wrong with this issue. Here, Abnett echoes one of the 20th Century's greatest practitioners of weird fiction while putting his own spin on it. That coupled with outstanding art by Federici and Gho firmily ground Aquaman in the known world while straddling the unknown. Aquaman 37 is destined to go down as one of the great comic epics while laying the groundwork for years of stories. Read Full Review

    This arc isn't over yet as Aquaman isn't going to have an easy win here. That's going to make the eventual victory even sweeter. Hopefully we won't have to wait months for the next installment. Read Full Review

    Federici has been a welcome addition on the art front as well. His art is clean and services the story with flair and style. This is a good issue in a decent series. I can't wait to see how Abnett wraps this whole crazy mess up. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Jun 21, 2018

    A nice action-packed issue with a interesting reveal about the Shades. Ultimately, however, this entire arc is beginning to be redundant: attack Rath, fail, retreat, repeat. This storyline needs to come to an end soon or it wont be worth remembering down the line. Read Full Review

    This is a take on Aquaman we have seen hinted at, but never fully embraced. I hope this tale is setting the path for future stories. Read Full Review

    Those who are already reading this series will find this issue to be typical of the high quality they've come to expect. All others would do well to start where the current storyline began and catch up as quickly as possible. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Jun 22, 2018

    Aquaman #37 shows a potential for this crescendo to the Corum Rath story to grow stale, but it also shows signs that it will soon come to an ending. Hopefully, that ending will be worth it. Regardless, this comic is still worth recommending. Check it out. Read Full Review

    It's a story with a lot going for it visually, but it feels like it's gone on at least several months too long at this point. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Jason Saba Jun 20, 2018

    This issue was a bit tedious and overly grandiose for me in parts, but I still liked a lot of it enough to give it a thumbs up. I'm missing Mera though. I know she has her own mini series that dovetails this arc, but I still would like to see her more often in the main Atlantis title. Read Full Review

    The Atlantean revolution against King Corum Rath continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues and continues.
