When an underwater explosion rocks the crew of the Andromeda, Aquaman comes to their rescue, but the damage has already been done. The explosion has damaged the ship's core and unleashed a sickness that will threaten everyone on board. But as tensions flare, Black Manta makes his move-it's information he's after, but what do ancient aliens have to do with Atlantis?

    Issue two is a tale of terror deep beneath the sea, as the situation deteriorates for the Andromeda crew with Ram V adding additional elements into the script to heighten tension on several levels. The physical threat and psychological terror are held in perfect balance here. aA the same time, Ward's art flawlessly brings that tension to life with beautiful line work and the use of color that plucks masterfully on your subconscious.

    AIPT - David Brooke Aug 1, 2022

    Readers of a certain age will liken some of what you see here to The Abyss with an unnerving horror underbelly. If that sounds appealing to you, you'll love Aquaman: Andromeda for how it makes you feel dread and uncertainty. In the same way Michael Crichton made us fear corporate overreach in Jurassic Park and the unknown in Sphere, so too does Ram V and Christian Ward spark the imagination. Read Full Review

    Brilliant art is backed up by a highly compelling and memorable story that fuses a lot of the best sci-fi tropes with some great superhero action. It's part of a great month of prestige-format books for DC this month. Read Full Review

    Intense and deeply alien, Aquaman Andromeda #2 reimagines DC characters and concepts we're familiar with and distorts them into fascinating new forms - all while telling a thoughtful, character focused and thematically rich story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 3, 2022

    Aquaman: Andromeda #2 swerves the story in a new direction to reveal the mysterious alien ship is not an alien ship at all. The swerve opens up a wide swath of storytelling potential, but the new direction is oddly familiar. Couple the strange-but-intriguing new direction with painfully uneven art, and you get a mixed bag overall. Read Full Review

    As things build the series continues to get more complex and more enthralling, but the series hasn't yet maximized its potential, and hopefully Book Three will be the issue to bring it all together. Read Full Review
