    Namora's freedom leads her to a Lovecraftian homage, an awesome display of might that rivals her using a piece of helicopter to pound Grizzly in Agent of Atlas and a most satisfying ending. Read Full Review

    The "Atlas" brand is a alive and kicking, and Parker has no problem providing additional tales of the individuals from the team. We've already seen solo tales of Marvel Boy/Uranian and now Namora. Gorilla Man has a mini coming up as well. Parker has done a fabulous job of making these characters relevant and marketable and I hope it continues. Read Full Review

    Great creative team on this book, and I would love to see the three of them work together on something that wasn't a throw-away one-shot. The book stars a character who could be someone interesting that could warrant her own book, but Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Jul 5, 2010

    Jeff Parker does his usual stellar work here, and the art isnt bad (Sara Pichelli is not a name Im familar with, but she turns in a fine job here) but overall the issue ends up being kind of predictable and meh. There are touching moments as Namora is seemingly reunited with her lost daughter, but overall its pretty inessential. Moreover, the cover (with a dead-looking Namora floating in oddly black waters) seems to be evocative of the recent ecological tragedy in the Gulf, and is a bit disquieting if it was intentional. As much as Parker is a fave-rave, this story could easily have been told in the backup slot of the ongoing Atlas title and possibly had more eyes on it and done the character a bit more good.
