    If you enjoyed Aquaman #62, then Aquaman #63 is a must! These two issues are more satisfying that the majority of DeConnick's run on the title. Jordan Clark does a great job of developing Jackson Hyde's character and hitting all the right story beats for a compelling turning point moment in the life of a young man. Even if you aren't reading Aquaman, these two issues are an entertaining read and an example of how good comics can be. Let's see if we can't get a Jackson Hyde series by this team! Read Full Review

    These are two jam-packed issues, that in a lesser writer's hands could feel jumbled. But Clark manages to handle a lot of plot points, including Jackson dealing with anxiety over the full extent of his powers (which hurt Mera the last time he used them). There's a fascinating undercurrent of commentary on dysfunctional families in this story, as Jackson tries to repair his tense relationship with his grandfather " and figure out whether there's anything in his father that's worth saving.

    Marco Santucci does great work with the art. There are some beautiful details throughout and the action looks fantastic. The architecture of Xebel really stand out. Read Full Review

    Jordan Clark gave Aqualad fans a nice two-part story that was true to the character and had some real feels moments. The art by Marco Santucci was great, and I wouldn't mind seeing them together on more DC books in the future. Read Full Review

    Still, the stakes are high enough to deliver the necessary tension in the claustrophobic battles and seeing Jackson overcome the baggage that's been holding him back is worth every damn penny, so if you're a fan of Jackson or the Aquaman side of the world in general, this is a must.
