    Though the story may be fairly straightforward even as it teases something bigger at the end and throws a part-one at us, it's a very active story that really puts the art team to task. The Sea Devils in their outfits and gear going up against the Trench as they claw over them, done with a lot of smaller panels, really builds up the intensity of the situation in a great way as it the whole underwater element really comes across here. The color scheme may be a touch close between the two but that only serves to up the confusion in a good way. I really like the Sea Devils so I'm glad to see them being used again here so quickly and to get time with Arthur and Mera just makes it all the better. I'm curious to see where this goes, and for how long, but I'm definitely up for more of this storyline and this group. Read Full Review

    Aquaman: Deep Dives #5 was an enjoyable, action-packed beginning to what's already turning into a major storyline for this series. Steve Orlando does a great job using the Trench as antagonist to build up the politics Aquaman and Mera are in the middle of while continuing to build credibility for the Sea Devils as a team. With the introduction of a villainous group from the DC Universe's past this storyline could lead to bigger things down the line. Read Full Review
