    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Feb 19, 2020

    Rocha and Henriques do some amazing work with the art in this issue. The characters look great, the drama is heightened to compensate for the lack of action and all of the scenes have a level of buried tension throughout. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Feb 19, 2020

    Its time for artist Robson Rocha to redesign Mera as his current take looks way too much like an homage to the X-Mens Phoenix than her own style. Although theres not much action, Rocha easily handles the dramatic, tense nature of this storyline. Romulo Fajardo Jrs color work is impressive and plays up Rochas style beautifully.

    This run has done marvelous work with expanding Aquaman's mythology, but as it gets down to more down-to-earth concepts, I'm hoping it course-corrects a bit to give Mera more of a voice. Read Full Review

    I like what we got at the end of this issue, but it's up to you to decide if one page a good comic makes.  That might be a little harsh, but everything else leads up to the cliffhanger and doesn't spend too much time getting there.  I am excited to see what comes next, though I wish all of the concerned parties were along for the swim.

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Feb 19, 2020

    As long as Aquaman is “not himself,” this title will struggle. While Mera carries this title, it may not be enough. When Mera is front and center, Aquaman is a better comic. As long as Arthur is portrayed as unlikable, he will be a distraction from the good things in the book. It's well past the time to get things back on track. Read Full Review
