    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Jun 23, 2020

    As a plot mover, Aquaman #60 is quite satisfying. Dolphin and Caille get the character moments in this issue and it works well. Previous issues have locked Arthur back into his recognizable characterization and the supporting characters getting some attention help expand the scope of connecting with the larger cast. The tension is pulled tightly when it seems possible Arthur will be too late for the wedding “tomorrow.” Arthur…don't be too late! Read Full Review

    Mendonca does an amazing job with the art. The characters look amazing and the action is exciting. The progression of the panels and how they are composed is fantastic. Read Full Review

    There's a lot of good in this series, but a lot of the comic book tropes it plays with take away from the epic mythology DeConnick has been building. Read Full Review

    I am enjoying this book for the most part. DeConnick is doing a commendable job. I really like Miguel Mendonca's art here as well. It is very accessible and well executed. This series is pretty decent overall and enjoyable. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Jun 23, 2020

    Kelly Sue DeConnick knows what readers want and gives her (or even them) to them quickly.  Besides that, though, we get a fantastic character moment with Arthur, the building tension of Dagon City, and some kickass art.  This run may have started slow, but it's worth checking out now.

    Black Nerd Problems - Keith Reid-Cleveland Jun 24, 2020

    Aquaman#60 works well as a connector to bigger things that are surely coming along, as you'd expect for the third installment of a story arc. The end of the issue brings back a very important character and introduces one who's both terrifying, as a concept, and intriguing. Read Full Review

    Miguel Mendoca handles the art this issue just as the title was getting some artistic consistency. Fortunately, Mendocas art is pretty similar to Robson Rocha that the visuals stay on course. Read Full Review
