Acclaimed fantasy novelist Tad Williams (THE NEXT, The Dragonbone Chair) begins his stint as the new chronicler of the adventures of the young man who would be King of the Sea!
Joined by the new art team of Shawn McManus (THE SANDMAN, SHADOWPACT) and Walden Wong (THE CREEPER, THE NEXT), a new horizon beckons for Aquaman, as new challenges await and new characters from this undersea world are introduced. It all begins here, in this extra-sized 50th issue extravaganza!
During a rare lull in his journey to become a hero, a summons comes to the Dweller in the Depths pulling Aquaman and his friends back to Atlantis, where Tempest, Orin's old companion, has just arrived. Over the course of this journey, they learn of threat coming from the worshippers of Urlok the Awaited. A threat that could mean destruction for what remains of Atlantis.
