    Overall, I am pleased with this issue. If I am going to be on the Aquaman ongoing after Convergence (undecided), then it is good that I will have this lore in my back-pocket. What I take away from the issue most of all is the human/hero story between Arthur and Dane Dorrance of S.T.A.R.S. that is put on display. There is also a wonderful line where Dane stoically conveys that while Batman is the one most people worry will turn bad, that it is Aquaman that is the truly the dangerous one. Overall, this issue is a skosh more solid than the last. And I wish they would stop letting Becky Cloonan paint covers. Read Full Review

    Convergence: Aquaman #2 gives readers more of the one-handed Aquaman they've been missing for years, and a pretty satisfying conflict with Deathblow. This isn't the most dazzling Convergence tie-in you'll read, but if you are an Aquaman fan and are looking for a tale with the King from outside the New 52, Bedard and Richards have you covered.

    The major thing this book suffers from resonates with most of the other Convergence books so far: it's doesn't seem to answer the 'so what?' question and tries to end on a dramatic look off to the distance without conveying much of anything. Read Full Review

    Tony Beadard did a good job with what he was given.  Convergence: Aquaman was a fun ride featuring lots of trash talking and blood...just what a 90's extreme comic should have.  I may not have liked the art, but I have joined the ranks of Deathblow fans.  If only I could find the others...

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma May 15, 2015

    Convergence: Aquaman is one of the first tie-ins to be stronger than its first half. On paper it sounds like every other "Convergence" show down, but there's something vivacious about this story that sets it apart. I would have loved to delve a little bit deeper into some of the ideas Bedard was working with and, despite a valiant effort, Cliff Richards can't bring the artwork up to his usual standard, but the issue does its job nicely. It lacks the importance of the Pre-Flashpoint issues but if you can accept a fun visit to mid-90s Metropolis, you'll probably walk out happy. Read Full Review

    "Convergence: Aquaman" #2 delivers a fight to the finish and an interesting path to victory for the winner. Bedard and Richards give readers a solid story, but it needs a little more oomph. That path to victory will probably be much more memorable than the actual fight between the characters, the outcome of the battle or, perhaps, even the "Convergence" event itself. "Convergence: Aquaman" #2 is decent, but it falls short of ascending beyond that. Read Full Review
