    Anindito does an amazing job with the art in this first issue. The characters look great and the attack on Pan is filled with beautiful details that complement the tone of the story. Read Full Review

    A really exciting start to this mini-series. Although nowhere near as grand in scale as the original, it's nice to see Namor back in action and ticked off at the surface world. Read Full Review

    We have a fantastic idea of who is fighting and why they are fighting, just not the best idea of what they are fighting for. Read Full Review

    The issue is new-reader friendly and should begin a payoff for followers of Pak's work. The debut is an entertaining one and a nice intro for what's to come. While it's not the best Pak has delivered it's still fun in many ways. Atlantis Attacks #1 gives new heroes the mini-event spotlight they deserve. Read Full Review

    Atlantis Attacks doesn't feel big just yet as Greg Pak spends most of the real estate on recap and introductions for new readers to jump in. It does enough to get the story going, but not much else and while I am going to continue reading, it didn't jump up my pull list. Recommended mainly to fans of the Agents of Atlas book.

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Jan 22, 2020

    Atlantis Attacks #1 kicks off by bringing the reader thoroughly up to speed with Amadeus Cho and the beef that puts his Agents of Atlas into conflict with Namor. The result is a nice, clear introduction for new readers -- but well-read Agents fans risk getting a little bored. They're also unlikely to be pleased with the ongoing shortage of attention paid to the Agents. A solid conflict, a strong central theme, and some appealing, organically-crafted art all work to keep this initial issue clear of true disappointment, though. Read Full Review

    The king of Atlantis is the most interesting part of the story, and though there are one too many folks to keep track of, the first issue does its job well enough. Read Full Review
