    Stash My Comics - Leo Johnson Apr 22, 2014

    Undertow continues to be a stellar title. Great world building, genuinely well-written characters, fantastic visuals, and a darn cool story idea. The addition of The Amphibian and the plans of Atlantis are sure to take this story in a very interesting direction as things start to unfold. Read Full Review

    The lore of this series is what first interested me and what is keeping me sucked in as the series goes on. In real life legends, Atlantis was depicted as a utopia, a place where everyone and everything was at peace and in sync both before and after it sank. Orlando and Trakhanov take that story, tear it apart, and reform it into a story about a corrupt civilization and an outlawed man who only wants to promote freedom for himself and those who wish for it. I must say I am hooked on this series and expect more and more from its creators as time goes on and so far I have every confidence in them that they will deliver. Read Full Review

    A plot to kill Redum is a foot! And with only three issues left I have more questions than ever. We are half way into the series and the pile gets larger and larger, I’m loving it. Thomas Mauer’s lettering is amazing, the hints of the Atlantean language here and there are a very nice touch. I can stare at these beautiful pages forever. Read Full Review

    Bloody Disgusting - Zac Thompson Apr 23, 2014

    There is a panel near the end of The Amphibians introduction that labels him as The God of Death. Its a roundabout way of telling us weve entered a whole new world here. The surface is relatively under control, but the new ally might be too volatile to control.Orlando and Trakhanov deal with many complicated themes in Undertow. They spend this month slowly developing them through their characters and the book becomes all the better for it. This is another stellar chapter of the best new series of the year. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 3, 2014

    I've been pleasantly surprised with this series from the beginning and I for one will be sticking it out until the end. Hopefully the team has a decent ending to the arc already plotted, but from what I've seen I'm not too worried that they won't work something out. If you blew this series off thinking it was just another underwater society doing underwater stuff, well you were wrong. You were very wrong. Read Full Review

    It's criminal that more people aren't talking about Undertow. But make no mistake: Undertow deserves your attention. It reads like Game of Thrones set in Atlantis, full of political intrigue, great character work, and violence. Read Full Review

    Rhymes With Geek - Matt Lune Apr 24, 2014

    As the plot thickens, so too does the art. As we dive deeper (no pun intended) into the ramifications and the rewards of Redum Anshargal's rebellious expedition, it would be nice if the art could be a little clearer. I can still appreciate the detail, the lettering and the gorgeous color palettes, but as the pace of the story picks up, the art needs that extra level of clarity that at the moment it's missing. Otherwise a great issue. Read Full Review
