All is as King Rath commands—and yet whispers persist of a rebel in the slums of Atlantis: A hero with the potential to change the world. In a tale that echoes sci-fi and fantasy sagas of the past, this critically acclaimed graphic novel is already being hailed as one of the grea...

Reviews Aquaman, Volume 4

  • Chad
    Aquaman's alive and taking lessons from Batman in helping from the shadows. I like seeing the different factions playing the game of thrones. If only the bad guys weren't so dumb and mustache twirly. The real star here is the art. How can we get Stjepan Šejić to draw every issue of Aquaman for the forseeable future.? His designs for Atlantis are fantastic. For the first time in a long time, Atlantis looks like a city that developed organically ...
  • James DeSantis
    Well least we're getting back on track. After a meh third volume Dan decided to step his game up, and add a new AMAZING artist! Stjepan Sejic comes in to give Aquaman a HUGE boost. Who else would be perfect for a underwater adventure? Stjepan Sejic that's who!!! So we have a new artist and a new setting. Aquaman last volume was stabbed and left for dead. He drifted into the down low area, the very dark and disgusting area, basically ...

    What a turnaround!!!!World: Šejić is PERFECT for this series and brings a level of depth (pun intended) and weight to the world that was missing before. His characters are gorgeous and convey so much, his backgrounds are diverse but also well thought out and designed well (which this world desperately needed), the colors are also fantastic in it's diversity and grounding the story in the water. The world building is absolutely fantastic. So far...

    All Hail The AQUAMAN!Arthur lives (no big surprise) but has taken refuge in the poorest district of Atlantis to help where he can and keep a low profile. He even goes so far as to state he's inspired by one of his (super) friends from the surface world and utilizes fear, mystique, intimidation...and the occasional school of deal with the undersea city's seedy underworld.Mera, meanwhile, believes Big A to be dead and is stranded outs...
  • Scott
    Not horrible, but a let-down after volumes 1 and 2. (Looking at other reviews of Vol. 4: Underworld I'm completely in the minority with this opinion. Yikes.) While the artwork was in a distinct new style the story-line - which, unlike the stories in previous books, took place 99% of the time in Atlantis - felt slower-paced and was not holding my interest. That one of the protagonists - Vulko(?) - occasionally reminded me of Comic Book Guy (in bot...

    [Read as single issues]Dan Abnett's Aquaman run has been chugging along quite nicely, but it seems he's ready to kick things into high gear and leave the surface world behind for a story set almost entirely in Atlantis. With Arthur dethroned and dead, and Corum Rath on the throne, Atlantis is in disarray. But there are rumours in the Ninth Tride of a familiar face opposing Rath's rule...And on the surface, Mera will do anything to find her way ba...
  • Koen
    Yesyesyes, I liked this! :)Don't know what it was... yeah I do, the art.. ;) Fell in love for the art... Stayed for the tension ... Seeing Arthur getting back after being killed in the previous part... I'm content.. This was a good story, well told.. and definitely drawn ^^
  • Adam Spanos
    Dan Abnett's run has been an absolute joy to read and now it has reached a new high. Aquaman, dethroned, has been forced to survive in the Atlantian underground and has become bitter to the people. Fed up with everyone blaming him and resisting his attempts to open up Atlantis to the world, he begrudgingly joins a growing resistance to take down King Rath. At the same time, Mera, his love, fights to try and find Arthur and reunite with him to tak...

    I got this book as part of the Goodreads Giveaways program. I haven't read a comic in ages, but this was a great journey back to a favorite childhood past time. I like the older super heroes and this was not a disappointment. The artwork was wonderful and the story line was very well thought out. Even though I had not read the books before, I was able to pick up the story and enjoy this book. I think that I will start reading comics again and par...
  • Will Robinson Jr.
    A truly beautiful series of great comic book storytelling. I was really excited about this volume in the DC Rebirth Aquaman series. Writer Dan Abnett had spent the first three volumes putting Arthur aka Aquaman through the ringer in the first three volumes. The last volume of the series had me on the edge of my seat and I was utterly shocked that Arthur had lost his crown. This volume picks up a while after the events of Aquaman, Volume 3: Crown ...
  • Dana Alma
    I'm so impressed with Aquaman! He is finally taking center stage as a super hero. The power struggle to claim his throne leads Arthur down a new path. I thought the secondary characters gave depth to the story. Great action surrounds the rise and fall of Atlantis, and Arthur's journey. The art is gorgeous. Artist Stjepan Sejic adds a unique flair to the comic. There's something to discover on each page. Who knew there were mutants in Atlantis! I'...
  • Nicola Mansfield
    I really like this new Aquaman, he's always been one of my favourites, but now he's even better and Dan Abnett writes one mean story. I somehow missed Vol. 2 & 3 (being rectified right now). However, word of this unrest in Atlantis was mentioned even back in Vol. 1. Now we find Aquaman still deposed and a new tyrant on the throne. Great foreshadowing of who could possibly be the new ruler excites me. No super villains in this volume but King Shar...
  • Brian Poole
    Aquaman: Underworld takes one of DC’s most misunderstood characters in an exciting new direction.With Atlantis believing him dead, Aquaman hides out in one of the poorest, most obscure corners of the kingdom, trying to anonymously help the outcasts who live there. The terrorist Rath has seized the throne and imposed martial law, with designs to re-ignite hostilities with the surface world. Aquaman and the mute-but-powerful young woman Dolphin r...
  • Adam Fisher
    That's how you do a Volume of Aquaman!Picking up from his apparent murder at the end of the last Volume, Corum Rath is now the King of Atlantis. Enacting a shield (called the Crown of Thorns) around Atlantis, Rath is acting more like a tyrant than a benevolent ruler. Jailing or killing hybrids, increasing military strength, Rath means to make Atlantis back to way it was hundreds of years ago. (If Rath had orange-ish skin or wispy hair, I'd make a...
  • Theediscerning
    Arthur is dead, and his bride queen totty thing stuck in the land of us air-breathers. In charge of Atlantis is a new baddy, with bad intentions. So bad, he's got a punky hair-do AND Braveheart make-up, and that can't be good. But lo and behold the Aquaman isn't dead, and so can come back and biff people up. Thus we get an exceedingly bog standard premise for this book – but way beyond the average in execution. The artwork is great, even if som...
  • Joe Howe
    On a very basic level, I'm not really a fan of Abnett's characterization of Aquaman, but this book...this book delivers. Abnett is admirably consistent in his characterization and does a lot to give it creedance by changing Aquaman's circumstances and challenges and demonstrating both Arthur's adaptability and his consistency. But, more importantly to me, it also delivers on every other promise of an Aquaman series:- terrible monsters- unhinged i...
  • Quentin Wallace
    This volume finds Aquaman an outcast and living in the underworld of Atlantis while Rath is the new King. For a short time he's almost like an "Atlantis Batman" as he's fighting crime from the shadows. Then we get into a fantasy type story with Vulko finding himself once more on Aquaman's side and an underground resistance forming to try to overthrow the new evil king. Mera looks up Tempest for help, and we see the introduction (re-introduction?)...
  • James Chan
    Just finished a galley from DC.Dan Abnett is creating one of the best Aquaman runs in a long while. It's hard to write a compelling yarn about a hero that everyone knows talks to fish but under his pen, Arthur Curry is a hero and true king of the seas. Most of the action takes place in Atlantis this time around but the topics touched upon are definitely ripped from today's current political climate. I haven't read anything that Stjepan Śejić ha...
  • Lisa
    Different artist from the other three? I'm not sure how I feel about that, I still enjoyed it but I could tell that the story had a different feel to it. Reguardless of that the story was awesome. I was left with so many questions, like what is gonna happen next with Mera? Who will be the next monarch with Aquaman taking on the mantle of Hero rather than King? Will the Justice League or Teen Titans get involved and help? I really look forward to ...
  • Sean Goh
    Really fun entry in this series, the new characters (dolphin), the scene with Vulko and the spectres in the treasury, Arthur's realisation that deep down he's still a hero (i.e. a person just trying to do the right thing) was a poignant moment in the plot. And Dolphin got him there all without speaking a single word.
  • Ron
    Mera learns that Arthur is still alive and seeks for ways through the magic that is protecting Atlantis to reach him, enlisting Garth in her endeavors. Arthur is posing as a vigilante in the Ninth Wave who gets caught up in the Atlantis Uprising movement. Plenty of ends to tie up in the next volume. The question, who will pay for all the problems everyone is creating?
  • Shoaib
    If you're like me, you thought the last 3 volumes were mediocre at best. I collected all the single issues and literally read this in one sitting over again. I am happy to say, THIS IS THE AQUAMAN STORY WE HAVE ALL BEEN WAITING FOR!!!!
  • Lisa
    Nice change of pace for me. Excellent illustrations. Thanks to Goodreads First Reads Program for this giveaway.
  • Kevin
    Very strong volume. The art of Stjepan Sejic is absolutely incredible.
  • John Funderburg
    Awesome, epic, gorgeous art. This is absolutely the best of the Aquaman Rebirth books so far - loved it!
  • Nicole Westen
    I was really excited for this volume! One of may favorite artists worked on it.
  • Amanda [Novel Addiction]
    Arthur, how I love thee.
  • Michael Griffin
    I read this volume just for Sejic’s art, but of course the story captivated me. I think I’ll be following the story for a few more issues — see what develops. I highly recommend!

    I really enjoyed this and will be following this story line as it progresses. While the art is wonderful the plot and dialogue is even better.
