There’s no safe haven quite like home…if you can call the destroyed and abandoned West Coast Titans Tower home! Jackson may have eluded the Atlantean guard, but he’s in for the fight of his life with the mysterious villain DELUGE, who framed Jackson for the Atlantis attack and seems hell-bent on his destruction!

    This issue is heavy on intense action scenes, and I found the energy of the overall story to be perfectly captured within the pages. Read Full Review

    As Jackson Hyde flees to a former home away from home, more pieces of the puzzle surrounding the plot to frame him begin to make themselves known especially surrounding the new villain Deluge. Truly this series and it's companion Black Manta are breathing a new bit of life into the Atlantean side of the DC Universe, and it's beyond exciting to see. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Nov 16, 2021

    I don't know what's going on with the art on this book, which now has a third primary artist in three issues. Scott Koblish is a talented penciller, but it's definitely a different style than the hyper-detailed work of Diego Ortolegui. Fortunately, the story stays strong as Jackson and Mera both find themselves with their backs against the wall. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Nov 16, 2021

    Aquaman: the Becoming #3 is a tense chase story following Jackson Hyde's attempts to get away long enough from the forces chasing him to figure out who framed him and why. The mechanics of his escape drop a nugget of information about the inner workings of the JL that's as interesting as the conflict in this arc. The reveal of the big bad is surprising but may be a little too much soap opera for some tastes. Read Full Review

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 16, 2021

    The soap opera style cliffhanger didnt help much either. Scott Koblishs art was solid although inconsistent. Aquaman The Becoming is in a weird transitional state for the temporary Aquaman and needs a jolt to prove why Jackson should be more than a seat-filler for Andy. Read Full Review
