    I'm really impressed with the collaborative story telling by Brown and Thomas. They've seamlessly brought together two completely different writing styles as found in their separate Aquaman: The Becoming and Black Manta series. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Apr 5, 2022

    ‘Aquamen' is not only building an intriguing mystery surrounding its title characters but it's also giving the Aqua-family the big Bat-family-like shared world experience that they richly deserve. A colorfully energetic book that puts a heavy emphasis on character relationships and depth, is just what we like to see from this sort of title. Read Full Review

    Overall, this series isn't giving away its secrets too easily but I'm very intrigued by where it's taking this plot. Read Full Review

    While it isn't as compelling as the debut issue, Aquamen #2 is still a strong chapter in a fascinating storyline. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Jan 1, 1970

    Aquamen #2drives a rift between Jackson Hyde and Arthur Curry and starts to peel back the mystery behind the Atlantean invasion. The next issue looks to take Jackson to Gotham City, which means that Batman and his various allies may get drawn into the conflict. This means that there's another dynamic that's ripe with story potential. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Mar 29, 2022

    Aquamen #2 drops nuggets of information surrounding the mystery of Orm's attack and seemingly random surface dwellers going berserk. The issue is filled with tense moments, generally great art, and plenty of curiosity-building to keep readers hooked for the next issue. That said, Jackson takes a big step toward becoming a villain and is not ready to take over the title of Aquaman. Read Full Review

    It still feels like we're doing more set up than anything, but it does also feel like we're about to hit some open road, and that should really get the story off to the races. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 22, 2022

    Aquamen #2 was a bit down for me, and while I am still intrigued with the overall mystery, the characterizations have me worried.  The art is outstanding, and there is some cool fan service going on, but I am already struggling with the book's dark tone.  I understand that is all on me, so your mileage may vary, but I wish that finally having Arthur and a larger Aqua-Family in a book together would make me smile more.

    Aquamen has a lot going on, but not much is all that clear or entertaining There's still time to…right the ship, but ideally, it would be building interest instead of stalling out. Read Full Review
