Variant sketch cover

Preview Text

As the Scavenger compiles more Atlantean weaponry and artifacts, Aquaman enlists the aid of The Others to help find one missing relic in the Southwestern United States before his enemies can get to it. The issue also introduces a new member of the Others!

Synopsis

Aquaman sends The Others to Arizona to retrieve an Atlantean power glove, and the team gets a new member.

Summary

On an Arizona reservation, a skinwalker is loose.

Aquaman brings Prisoner of War and Ya'wara to the Operative's plane where he asks the group to find an Atlantean weapon that has been taken to Arizona. They agree.

On the reservation, Sky Alchesay speaks with her dead mother, much to the consternation of her brother, Victorio. The pair's uncle, Carl, attempts to get Victorio to leave the reservation.

The Living Room lands in the Arizona desert after being hit by lightning on a clear day. Sky enters the plane as soon as it lands and reaches for the Seal of Clarity. She convinces Ya'wara that the seal belongs to her, then tells the Others that they need to stop a skinwalker who has the power glove they are looking for.

The Others reach the cave as the skinwalker, Carl, breaks in. While Prisoner of War holds the ghosts back, the Operative and Ya'wara are taken down by the skinwalker. He admits to Sky that he killed her mother, and she calls on the ghost lands to hold him while the Operative reseals the cave after taking the glove.

Sky bids the Others farewell, but she knows she will run into them again.

Comments

The originally solicited story was replaced by a fill-in story by John Ostrander. The cover incorrectly lists the wrong creative team.

This issue features a 1:25 B&W variant cover by Paul Pelletier and Sean Parsons.

The Operative speaks with Aaron's mother. She wants her son back, but Joshua tells her that Aaron deserves a better mother.

Victorio, a police officer, doesn't know who killed his mother. Sky talks with her, but Sky tells Victorio that their mother cannot say who killed her. Victorio, who has been scaring away all of Sky's potential boyfriends, thinks that people will think Sky is weird.

Carl the Skinwalker is apparently sealed in the cave with the ghosts of other skinwalkers by the Atlantean key. Handy thing, that key.
