    1. The current onslaught of collected comics from my childhood is enough to make my head spin. If you had told the childhood me that I would be able to purchase a collected Aquaman paperback in my adulthood, I would have told me I was crazy. Why would anyone do a thing like that? And yet, here we are.This is really an amazing piece of work--as a collected piece of my youth, I should say. The story itself, written by a half dozen or so talents, is . . . well, it's very much a product of its time. Th [...]

    2. The series starts off a little slowly, stuck in that 70s sort of comics style, but once it gets going, it's very impressive. The story's a page-turner, and Aquaman's a more complex character than I'd expected. Great art, too.

    3. This is a great collection of stories from various DC comics from the 70s. There is a lot of history in these stories. Relationships are built, destroyed, and repaired. It's a great read if you can find a copy.

    4. Es atendible que un comic vaya perdiendo frescura con los años. Su contexto temporal lo determina y no es materia de juicio. Sin embargo, si es posible reconocer que un comic antiguo pueda ser simplón y apegado a fórmula. Una cosa no implica otra y por eso, en toda época, hay comics mejores que otros.Esta saga de Aquaman en particular es bien mala. Tiene una premisa interesante para poner en juego, la que da título al mismo, y no deja de ser valiosa como punto de evolución para el personaj [...]

    5. a good, comprehensive collection of Aquaman solo stories from the mid-70s. ranging from appearances in Adventure Comics and the short lived revival of Aquaman's own magazine, this volume also includes back up stories featuring Mera and Aqualad, all of which are integral to the overall theme of this collection. most of the art is by the great Jim Aparo, but the writing duties fell to many different men: Paul Levitz, David Michelinie, Paul Kupperburg, and Steve Skeates. the artwork of Mike Grell a [...]

    6. So wish 2.5 was an option.So this proves Aquaman is the worst husband ever, so if you ever feel like you are failing in your relationships remember you probably never ran off for months leaving your wife during a horrible family crisis. Win for you!Doohicky, super villans say doohicky!Hey Aquaman, if you catch Black Manta maybe you shouldn't let him go. Just saying!I can say it's very real, many fish were killed in Aquaman's exploits.

    7. An attempt to grapple with heavier subject matter, particularly the death of Aquaman and Mera's son, the rushed nature of most of the stories (the majority topping out at 12 pages) limits the emotional pull and characterization. Entertaining, but hardly definitive.

    8. Actually 2.5 stars due to the uneven nature of the collected stories and lackluster characterization of most to all figures in the stories. Maybe I expected more emotional punch or better writing, but I'd not recommend this book to any but established Aquaman fans for reading.

    9. This earns three stars for nostalgia more than anything else. I found it a little slow and only slightly entertaining. It was interesting to see Mera and Aqualad get some solo adventures, but as a whole I didn't really enjoy this. The death of Arthur Jr. was a non-event. It was very strange.
