Aquaman and Garth try to stop one of the Millenium Giants from squashing Thierna Na Oge. Even with Superman Red's help, they don't succeed.

Koryak is almost convinced to run for the High Council of Poseidonis, Spought saves some of the magic of Thierna Na Oge from destruction, and Triton promises the Mother of Beasts some help against the giants if she'll mother him a really nasty beast.


I wasn't going to buy this issue. Very simply, I hate crossover. This issue was a crossover, so I wasn't going to buy it.

Two factors made me change my mind.

First: Peter David is leaving the book. I want to have every issue he writes, and the ones left have become that much more precious. Even a crossover issue.

Last: I was informed that I made the letters page again. So I bought it.


Considering the constraints of the crossover, PAD made the most of it. A good issue.
