    There's a lot to like with this standalone tale. Orlando's script gets us to feel the bigger scale of events and what Aquaman is doing as the ruler of Atlantis but it also paints the smaller picture of him teaching the next generation how to do what's needed in the future – and in the present. Both work well as do the ties to the distant past that gives it a bit more weight. Marion and Florea's artwork is great throughout with all the water effects while Dalhouse's color design brings it to life beautifully. It's a wonderful little standalone tale that touches on the key points of both characters very well. Read Full Review

    Aquaman: Deep Dives #3 was a good change of pace as we got to see our lead hero's role as a mentor shine. Steve Orlando was able to showcase how there is a lot of potential in the duo of Aquaman and Tempest. Their chemistry comes across as natural and makes you hope there are more stories where we see them team-up in the future. The story itself was a good showcase of how both Aquaman and Tempest can step up to save the day during a major crisis. Read Full Review

    DC’s 'Digital First' books have really been a mixed bag, and I think it’s because these books were never really intended for the platform. It’s not enough to just make a comic for print and toss it into a digital setting. The ways that people read are entirely different on a phone or tablet. That means that the content has to change to suit that. Otherwise, you’re trying to fit a square peg in a round hole and you’re leaving readers holding the bag with a poor reading experience. This issue is a clear example of that, leaving Aquaman: Deep Dives #3 is dead in the water. Read Full Review
