    This is a great issue. The art is really strong both in moments of dialogue and action. The action itself is a lot of fun. Even in her weakened state, Mera is still a force which is cool. And Abnett provides a lot of really strong character moments for both Mera and Ocean Master. I recommend checking this one out. Read Full Review

    Lan Medinas work looks better this issue thanks to new inker Norm Rapmund. Medina is good with action scenes. Yet, I would have preferred if Nicola Scott had also been invited to elevate the series into classic territory. Read Full Review

    Kabooooom - Sarah Moran Mar 29, 2018

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis #2 is another solid entry in what's shaping up to be a great first mini-series for the newly dubbed Queen, even if it comes across as Orm trying to steal the limelight. (Which, frankly, is such an Orm thing to do.) Read Full Review

    This isn't a bad series by any stretch " neither is the book it spins out of " but it's not really a Mera series. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Max Sisco Mar 28, 2018

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis #2 is a well paced issue that progresses the story well, but continues to be too tied into canon for anyone who isn't up to date on Aquaman to enjoy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Mar 28, 2018

    Dan Abnett gives us an action-packed fight-filled issue that is over way to quickly because not much happens.   Lan Medina and the art team make it all look great, but this kind of padding in a six-issue mini should never happen.  You can probably skip this one and jump back in with no problem next month or just trade wait on this series.

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Mar 29, 2018

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis #2 still has some problems hobbling what could be a great story from a great creative team. Abnett still comes off as uncomfortable with this setup, but theres still plenty to love from the villain to the pacing and fight sequence. In fact, I do recommend this one; just be aware of its flaws before checking it out. Read Full Review

    This is issue moves the story forward significantly compared to the first, but the constant narration still takes me out of the story from time to time. Read Full Review
