    I'm definitely enjoying getting these standalone Aquaman stories and Grey nails this one just right. The Sea Devils are the kind of old property that can be adapted well to modern times in creative ways but, because they're not top-tier characters, will never really be able to justify anything being done of note with them because of modern market realities. It's unfortunate but that's just how it is. There's a lot to like here in getting a taste of what could be, especially with great artwork from Lopresti and Ryan. It's got a great look and has all the right pieces that could be built into something even more and grander. Read Full Review

    Aquaman: Deep Dives #2 accomplished what it set out to do. Michael Grey provided a story that will give fans looking for an enjoyable Aquaman story to get their fill. There isn't much outside of that. Which is fine but if you are not an Aquaman fan this is definitely an issue you can easily pass on and try the Superman, Batman or Wonder Woman digital firsts released this week instead.

    That's probably damning Aquaman: Deep Dives with faint praise, but the story does read like a first draft that probably should have been workshopped significantly before bringing an art team on board. Artist Aaron Lopresti keeps this issue from sinking too dramatically, but the result is purely disposable action featuring a purely forgettable team-up. Unless you're a Sea Devils completist, there's no need to pick up this watered-down Aquaman adventure. Read Full Review

    didn't enjoy it near as much as I enjoyed the first issue, Aquaman still is a fucking badass and the Sea Devils are kinda cool ... I guess they are mostly corny and the entire story wasn't as fun to read as that badass battle with mantis in the first there is a basis that I like but the characters lack charm except for Aquaman he's still kinda badass. the way they kill the sea creature was kinda weird. the whole saving the ocean gimmick was hella corny and made me kinda turned off but I didn't despise the message, it's just the way they say it which sounded like an ad to save the ocean. overall it was kinda ok... I guess I hope they improve the quality next issue cause the first one was litty
