    3.5 stars I love Mera. And as excited as I was to see her get her very own title, I was honestly hoping to love this more than I did. <--that's NOT to say it wasn't good! It was. It's a solid first outing for this character. Not mindblowing, but solid. The gist is th...

    Mera is a very strong character... but I felt like this was presented as though it was a stand alone but you needed to know a lot of backstory. Also, the underwater politics... I read comics to get away from politics ha! Anyway, she was fierce but I felt that the book was too short in ...

    I've always found Mera a bit of a boring character. A lot of that can likely be blamed on the fact that the majority of comic book writers are men, and men have little idea of 1) how to write married/committed couples and 2) women. Its not that Abnett does a good job with Mera's cha...

    I wanted more from this book, but that doesn't mean it wasn't still fun. The art was... okay. The women are very stereotypically sex figures, the way they've been drawn for decades. I kept squinting at one land woman and swearing she was straight outta the 80s with her haircut, gla...

    Maybe if I were more familiar with some of the characters, they would have seemed a little less flat & flimsy. But I'm not, so they didn't. Mera is badass, but she's rather surrounded by jerks who seem to be jerks just for the sake of being jerks, even when it's against their own s...

    ??1/2 *Note: Make sure to read this after Aquaman, Vol. 5: The Crown Comes Down and before Aquaman, Volume 6: Kingslayer Mera has become one of my favorite heroines in comics and so I was excited to see her get a miniseries spinoff from the main Aquaman title. And it seems li...

    A solid enough, if unexciting outing. I was hoping that Mera would get something to do besides pine after Arthur, but I guess that wasn't meant to be. I like her far more when they're together, because she can focus on other things. And honestly, she was way more interesting as a solo ...

    Excellent. Seriously, Dan Abnett's storytelling and his command of both Aquman and his world continue to impress me. It's truly remarkable. This volume focuses on Mera, as Queen in Exile, as she works to both heal from magical injury and to build up an army of her own to help Aquaman b...

    [Read as single issues] With her powers compromised and her ability to breathe underwater failing, not to mention her partner trapped in a city that no longer tolerates him, the last thing Mera wants is to be confined to land. But a Queen in absentia is still a Queen, and she isn?...

    I don?t have much context at all for this volume, not even having watched the Aquaman movie, so not sure if she?s keeping in character or whether this is completely OOC. Likewise for the larger Aquaman plot. Seeing her so depowered was quite disheartening but then knowing she wa...

    While this is a separate mini-series, it ties directly into the ongoing plot arc then running in Aquaman and makes no sense without it. The plot focuses around Mera trying to find a way to help Arthur and, in that sense, is a side-story to the main plot about the Atlantean civil war. W...

    I really wanted to like this more than I ended up liking it. But It was okayish. I had higher expectations for it. The art was nice, I found the plot be just ok. The dialogue at times was meh. Overall a little let down for what I believe is the first Mera solo book ever. Hopefully she ...

    3.5 Stars. In Aquaman Vol 6: Kingslayer, we see the end of the war between Arthur and Corum Rath. When Mera shows up with the forces of Xebel to help, THIS Volume is how that comes to be. Though the Volume is titled after Mera, a majority of this is about Orm, the Ocean Master. Havi...

    Mera is def one of my fave DC heroes. She's not ONLY a badass warrior who is now queen, she's sexy too! If you haven't been keeping up with Aquaman, shit is not going well for the king. He was forced out of being the king and now is building an army to rise against the tyrant. Mera...

    Like most of the readers of this comic, I came here after watching the Aquaman movie and I wasn't dissappointed at all. This can be read as a stand alone, but if one wants to keep reading the story, bettwen turn the Aquaman issues. The design is fantastic and the story is good too. Thi...

    3.5 stars (but Mera deserves all the stars for existing) This was my first time reading a comic with characters from the Aquaman series and I really enjoyed it! Mera: Queen of Atlantis is set during the events of the on-going Aquaman (2016) series, but it?s okay if you haven?t r...

    I was very excited to see Mera was getting her own miniseries. She is maybe an even better character than Aquaman. Unfortunately, this is almost an Ocean Master story more than a Mera story. Abnett quickly reverts Orm to a one note, "haughty royalty" type character missing all the nuan...

    Pretty much the same issues I had with Abnett?s Aquaman series. World: The art is okay, it?s solid, it?s not gorgeous but it?s definitely not ugly, it?s just okay. The world building here is solid, it?s the continuation of Mera?s story from the current Abnett Aquaman r...

    After watching the recent Aquaman movie, I was excited to read more about the characters in Atlantis. In the movie, Mera is a powerful ally to Aquaman, so I was looking forward to reading about her adventures in this book. Unfortunately, it seems that this isn't really a Mera book, but...

    I love the title character so I really wanted this to be better but in the end the story can basically be summarized by ?Orm?s gonna Orm?. Too bad so much of the action takes place in Xebel underwater, I always feel artists get a better chance to showcase Mera?s powers on d...

    I love Mera. She a badass and can hold her own, but I don?t really understand why we had to have Orm in this as well. Kinda took away some of her own narrative. But I do like her realising her own path and reaching a new level with her powers. She?s so cool. I just want more Mera-c...

    There were a couple inexplicable plot holes in the narrative. The artwork was consistent and outstanding, and the colors were vibrant which made it so much fun to read. I read this mainly to understand Mera better as a character, and it did focus on her role (as opposed to Aquaman or O...

    Mera: Queen of Atlantis collects the six issues of Mera's solo run, which ties directly into the main storyline of Aquaman. I've always loved Mera as a character, and I don't get to read much of her in comics. I really enjoyed these few issues, even if I'm a bit out of the loop sin...

    3.75 - Great comic! I always love stories about kings and empires and such. Didn?t realize it was a tie in to Aquaman, but still awesome. Enjoyed breaking down and re-building Mera. She?s such an awesome character. Solid world building & character driven plot. ...
