    Marco Santucci does some great work with the art in this issue. There are some solid visual thrills throughout and the panels are very immersive. The confrontation between Jackson and Manta is well done and filled with some beautiful details. Read Full Review

    A fill-in issue usually means two things"it won't tie in to the main story much, and it won't be as good as the main run. Surprisingly, that's not the case on either count for Jordan Clark's fill-in on Aquaman. Read Full Review

    If you're a fan of Jackson Hyde, you've got to buy Aquaman #62! Jackson gets the spotlight and along with a lot of excellent character work, there's a looming plot thread established for a future issue. Most importantly, Jackson comes across as a real person with genuine concerns and doubts and needs. Even Black Manta gets a little bit of sympathetic treatment. You can't help but feeling bad for him as his past unfolds slowly. In some ways, the Manta family may be overtaking the appeal of the Aqua-family! Don't call it a fill-in, it's so much more than that! Read Full Review

    Granted, the book lacks much in the way of action (aside from one brief sequence) and this isn't an essential tie-in to the main storyline, but even those nitpicks aren't enough to take away from what the book does so well, and if you've got room in your pull list this week, Aquaman is definitely worth a look.

    Jordan Clark takes over Aquaman for a few issues to give us an Aqualad and his AI Grandfather story.  That may sound ridiculous, but it isn't, and I wanted more of the two together.  Clark does a good job, and Marco Santucci's art is great,  making this a side-story worth checking out.
