Based on 11 critic ratings.

They descend suddenly from the stars, in monumental ships like floating cathedrals. They are touched by a dark and terrible force from beyond our reality, silent but for the one note they emit that freezes all motion. Their mission: to drain the Earth of all its kinetic energy and leave it a lifeless husk. They never expected anyone could escape their song-but the Flash was in the Speed Force when they struck, and Aquaman was in the deepest ravine far below the ocean’s floor. These heroes have little in common. They’ve rarely even fought side by side without their fellow Justice League members. Now they must find a way to work together against impossible odds to save the world and the people they love.

    The Story: Kelly and Lanzing craft an entertaining and intriguing story with two characters that do not have a history of one on one tales. It’s interesting to team these two up and the story does a great job of showcasing their interpersonal similarities while showing their personal conflict. It’s a fun story with some great dialogue and conflict. I love how these two clash with each other and I cannot wait to see how the story evolves. The Art: Vasco Georgiev brings an intense and beautifully detailed style to the story and its characters. The style is perfect for the kinetic energy of the story and I look forward to see more.

    After a disastrous few years of lackluster and outright bad Aquaman titles, Aquaman / The Flash: Voidsong #1 is a surprising breath of fresh air. The alien threat feels epic, the logic behind the unlikely team-up makes sense, and the art is gorgeous.

    Jackson and Lanzing have delivered another fun debut giving us high stakes, lots of action, and some great moments between Barry and Arthur. It’s another example that if you see their names on a comic, it’s one to pick up and give a chance, you’ll rarely be disappointed.

    A great summer read! Fifty-page issues, with every page very entertaining. A nice alternative to big summer "events." You don't have to have read thirty different comics to enjoy this one!

    Ultimately, Aquaman and The Flash: Voidsong #1 is an excellent character exploration built on relationships. Kelly and Lanzing's focus on relationships in this issue is a double-edged sword as it allows the reader to gain a deeper understanding of these heroes but also puts the main conflict on the backburner. Unfortunately, a few narrative choices surrounding The Flash's conflict resolution and visual storytelling inconsistencies prevent this issue from reaching perfection.

    A rare case of a prestige-format oversized book that doesn’t belong to Black Label, this Flash/Aquaman team-up epic is being hyped as possibly the last Arthur Curry story (with him dead in Dark Crisis and Barry missing in action). (...) The high-stakes storyline is more than enough to keep me engaged, but I’m hoping to also see characters I can get invested in in future issues.

    I will admit that I was extremely wary of Aquaman & The Flash: Voidsong #1 considering just how bad the recent Aquaman/Green Arrow series was, but Voidsong surprised me. (...) The only real hiccup here is that there are times when orienting yourself as the reader takes a moment, but it's a solid start to what feels like a truly intense (in the best way) series.

    The Comicbook Dispatch

    AQUAMAN and the FLASH are certainly as connected as night and day. And thus, Lanzing and Kelly do a fantastic job hammering that point across. However, it’s done at the expense of some character traits and key plot points about the overarching dilemma our heroes find themselves in. Too many attempts at comedic FLASH quips mixed with an over-the-top sense of arrogance from Arthur take away from the current story just to showcase the world of difference between these two characters. My wish is that Lanzing and Kelly spent more time commandeering the essential story beats surrounding the villain to provide fans with more behind the who and why especially with only two more issues to go. Nevertheless, it’s Georgiev and this art team that saves the day furnishing fans with some wildly endearing illustrations that are truly reminiscent of the era dear to many DC COMIC fans. Should you snag AQUAMAN & THE FLASH: VOIDSONG #1? Well, if you’re looking forward to the team-up, you won’t find much of one this week nor will you figure out much about the villain. It’s almost like two separate stories that barely connect in the end. Plus, I feel like the biggest plot points could be summarized in the preview synopsis causing fans the ability to skip the opener if need be and step right into issue two with ease.

    Lyles Movie Files

    Enjoyment of the story will largely depend on reader appreciation of the two leads, neither of whom are particularly written in any great consistency with regards to their solo titles. (...) One of the strengths is definitely the art from Vasco Georgiev. Georgiev has a style reminiscent of Jamal Campbell and Chriscross with rich, expressive portrayals of the characters and a dynamic flow to the action. (...) Too much of this issue centered around establishing this particular take of Aquaman and The Flash and not enough on the threat the two Justice League members are facing. Next issue will need to bring some significant progression of the Void to determine if this mini-series is worth seeing it play out.
