    Aquaman brings the new team's first arc to a pulse-pounding close as gods clash, dragons roar and powers emerge. This is the mythic Aquaman run that's unlocked a whole new world. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Apr 17, 2019

    In only one arc, DeConnick has managed to open up Aquaman's world and introduce a host of fascinating new elements that will give writers a lot to play with " including one of the best new villains in years in Namma/Mother Salt. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Cameron Tevis Apr 19, 2019

    This is Rochas best work on Aquaman to date, but even his art cant save this book from its current direction. For what its worth, it was at least decent to see the Old Gods in action. But overall I cannot recommend this title, at least not until a new creative team comes on board. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Apr 17, 2019

    This creative team's opening arc ends rather neatly and abruptly, but it is still pretty satisfying for those who have been keeping up. Fans hoping for a total restoration of the character might be disappointed, but the issue ends on a familiar note that bodes good things. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Christopher Landers Apr 19, 2019

    In the end, this issue, and the arc it concludes could have done more to make the readers care about DeConnicks take on Arthur. There are new directions teased at the end of the story that should provide enough incentive for those who might be on the fence to pick up the next issue, but if the pace doesnt pick up soon, there is no doubt that this book will be shedding readers within the coming months.

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Apr 17, 2019

    Robson Rocha's art continues to be well-detailed and epic in scope. Rocha truly understands how to get the most of these sweeping, fantasy scenarios. Inker Daniel Henriques and colorist Sunny Gho provide clarity and the right amount of drama to fully set the tone. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Hussein Wasiti Apr 17, 2019

    This issue was a decent conclusion but I still feel a little lost when it comes to this new direction. It feels both new and exciting, while also feeling unnecessarily synergistic. The art is incredible and a joy to behold. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Matt Morrison Apr 18, 2019

    I haven't been entirely sure what to make of this series at times, but Kelly Sue DeConnick's story has been a fascinating one, if hardly typical of the Aquaman series of late. Read Full Review
