    This is a great issue. It's simple but effective. The character dynamic between Orm and Mera ends up being a lot more interesting than I thought it would be. The art is strong as well. It is a good character driven issue that I liked a lot. Read Full Review

    Mera and Orm in this issue begin to explore what made them say ‘no, I can change this.' Mera's empathy and love for an unlikely lover, drew the line for her. Orm's surprising love for an earth-dweller and new “duties” helps him understand how it could be to lose the two things that soothes him. Conflict is trying to heal your own toxicity, and the toxicity of your own home. Read Full Review

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis #3 puts an interesting twist on its story. It's well drawn and compels the reader to want to find out where the story will go next as the series unfolds. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Kelly Gaines Apr 25, 2018

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis is a great addition to DC's current line up. It's a chance to look at Aquaman's mythology through another lens while his story continues to play out simultaneously. Whether or not you're keeping up with Aquaman, give Mera a try. So far it just keeps getting better. Read Full Review

    Probably the best issue yet of this series, as after two Ocean Master-centric issues, it finally feels like Mera is taking charge of her own series. Read Full Review

    This series has a few things against it, but one huge thing for it...Ocean Master!  I love Orm and every panel with him in it makes me smile.  I also love Mera and the two together are solid gold.  If only this book could ditch the over narration and slow pacing, it could turn into something special and unique in its own right.  As it is now, it is just good.  Believe me, though, I'll take "just good" any day.

    Well done narrative and art. Story moved a little slowly, but focusing on Mera makes it worth reading. Read Full Review

    This series is finally starting to gain momentum, though the visuals aren't as engaging as the two leads. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 28, 2018

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis #3 is among the more disappointing Big Two comics Ive read in some time. The plot is badly padded by a character written to be insufferable and short-sighted, and Mera continues to play second fiddle to Ocean Master. The art is solid, but it doesnt save the book. This one doesnt get a recommendation. Read Full Review
