    This is a fresh new take on the longtime hero, and so far DC is knocking it out of the park. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Mar 21, 2019

    The sheer scale of it in turns earns the reverberations it causes throughout the ocean by issue's end, the way this tale appears to be expanding is a thrilling way to up the ante in an arc that's already of high quality and of its best issue yet. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Mar 20, 2019

    This arc has been fine, but it's felt like it's dragged out longer than necessary. DC really spoiled readers with the twice a month release for its Rebirth kickoff. It's one of those deals where once it's been established, it's difficult to train readers to revert to the traditional storytelling method. Granted, DeConnick and Rocha likely appreciate not having to rush to crank out two issues a month, but this is the kind of story that would have benefited tremendously told in two and a half months instead of five.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Mar 20, 2019

    Things fall into place as Aquaman and Caillie confront Namma, revealing a secret that I'm pretty sure we already knew. Now that all the characters introduced feel relevant, the story has become more compelling, which I guess is a pretty neat trick in comics today. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Mar 27, 2019

    Overall, even if youre not a fan of the Namma/Caille angle for this arc, this issue still gives the fans something they have been waiting for five chapters for. Its worth checking out if youve been on the fence about continuing to pick up this book, but the next few issues will be the real test of whether or not DeConnick has an excellent long-term plan for Aquaman.

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Mar 21, 2019

    Its interesting because I think I am reading the best (Hawkman) and worst (Aquaman) of what DC Comics is currently putting out. It is really difficult to jump Hawkman and be excited to read this title. Read Full Review
