    : Kelly Sue DeConnick brings down the curtain on her exceptional Aquaman run with a final issue that's notable as much for how non-explosive it is than anything. Read Full Review

    Aquaman was one of DCs most engaging titles since it began under the Rebirth imprint and even with a creative team switch remained a worthy read for much of its run. DeConnick provides the ideal ending to a sensational run that should serve as a reminder that with writers who get the character and his supporting cast, Aquaman can be an A-list title for DC.

    While Kelly Sue DeConnick needed to rush things to end her run on Aquaman, I think most fans will be smiling by the end.  Some may even shed a tear or two.  Not me, though.  I just got something in my eye! Read Full Review

    Sure, it could've been longer and a bit more action-packed, but those issues don't keep it from delivering a satisfying conclusion to this bold new chapter of Aquaman that I'm sad to see end. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Nov 17, 2020

    While it's nice to see Arthur and Mera finally married (this was teased way back in DC Universe Rebirth #1), the journey has been a bit underwhelming (The best character work was with Jackson and grandpa Jesse). The idea that Atlantis is moving forward with a different political agenda is interesting and would've made for a better story than returning Orm to the vengeful brother for another confrontation for the throne with Arthur. It's worth reading this issue for the small forward movements, but it's a headscratcher when one realizes the missed opportunities. Read Full Review
