Andy Curry, daughter of Arthur and Mera, has had a pretty terrible month. Jackson Hyde, a.k.a. Aquaman, won’t stop calling her Aqualass when she’s told him a thousand times it’s Aquawoman. She’s manifested a new power that scares the absolute hell out of her. Oh, and she and Jackson just got ripped apart in the midst of a cosmic space ocean and she can’t find him anywhere! For the first time in her 14 years, Andy’s all alone-and it’s gonna take her wits, her will, and every single lesson Jackson ever taught her to survive.

    Two of my favorite DC characters are Aquaman and Mera, and if you told me that in 2021 I would be perfectly fine with neither as the lead in an Aquaman comic, I would've told you to take it easy on the wine. Somehow that's happened though, as writer Brandon Thomas, artist Daniel Sampere, and colorist Adriano Lucas have combined to deliver an inspired and wholly unique take on the Aquaman mythos, and all I want is to follow Andy and Jackson on their next grand adventure.

    But Why Tho? - Collier "CJ" Jennings Feb 23, 2021

    Future State: Aquaman #2 beautifully explores how trauma and legacy can often go hand in hand, as well as the relationships in the Aquaman family. I would love to see more of Andy and Jackson's adventures, as the concepts and story could fuel an ongoing series for years. Thomas and Sampere have given theFuture State universe one of its most well-crafted stories; if you have been enjoyingFuture State so far or you're an Aquaman fan, I definitely recommend picking up this story.

    Future State: Aquaman #2 is superb. When everything with Future State shakes out I desperately want this series to continue (albeit with a different name). There is a lot of potential here. Jackson was clearly shortchanged here, but that means we can only hope for more time with him. My fingers are crossed. My webbed toes are crossed. I want more of Andy and Jackson. Yes please!

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Feb 23, 2021

    Future State: Aquaman #2 takes all the mystery and anticipation of the first issue and completely discards it in favor of a problematic, survival, coming-of-age story. The art is great and the character designs are imaginative, but what could have been an epic bookend falls flat. Read Full Review
