    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jul 29, 2022

    Aquamen takes in its final pages to set aside the superheroics and dive deeper into the intricacy of human interaction/connection, the mixing of politics and fear, as well as grief and the toll of unexpected losses. This has been a truly beautiful and character-driven series that has done so much to expand this family of characters and their world. It will be deeply missed. Read Full Review

    Just about every major character gets a spotlight in this issue, but Black Manta has got to have the most interesting character arc. Read Full Review

    Aquamen #6 grounds the series in the emotion and relationships of the characters before establishing how the world of Aquaman enters into Dark Crisis. Read Full Review

    Aquamen had promise, but Thomas and Brown were rarely able to go beyond that potential to tell a story that excited and thrilled readers. Jackson Hydes adventures will continue in Dark Crisis, but itll be interesting to see what, if anything, happens to the rest of the Aquaman family. Read Full Review

    Aquaman fans will find all sorts of shining character moments to love, but as a whole, the series wasn't as much of a home run as I hoped it would be. Read Full Review

    Follow ComicalOpinions on Facebook, Instagram, and TwitterBits and PiecesAquamen #6 is what happens when creators and editors know a title is canceled but can't be bothered to wrap up the arc with any semblance of sense or caring. Despite a valiant effort by the art team, the story simply skips the resolution in favor of a semi-emotional epilogue for a mild Dark Crisis lead-in. Read Full Review

    I really want my old Aquaman back. Shave the beard like Reed Richards just did and put Mera's costume back like it was in the movie. This issue was a bunch of wasted filler. Trevor talks to a committee about not attacking Atlantis, then we cut to an Atlantis school bus for no reason, then we are back to the discussion about attacking Atlantis, then the news comes in about the Justice League dying. I'm not sure if this is the last issue, but if Jackson is the new Aquaman, then I'm out either way.

    This issue, like the rest of this run, was pretty boring. What makes it explicitly bad is that they are STILL trying to reconcile and validate Mera killing Aquaman. They even make a joke of it in this issue. For the record: Killing your significant other because you just love them so much is, in fact, bad. It's not romantic or cute, or any more validated than a random act of violence. In fact, most murders are considered acts of passion, so DC is justifying most murders here. It was a stupid idea to do it when DeConnick tried to blame it on hormones, and you aren't going to fix it by trying to justify it some other way. Just leave it alone. Ignore it. Oh also, the Death of the JL came out of nowhere and had nothing to do with the story. Jus more
