Variant sketch cover

Preview Text

Aquaman's right to the throne is put to the test when an Atlantean rises up to defend the city - an Atlantean who many others believe should be King...

Synopsis

Still trying to find the Scavenger, Aquaman is distracted by the news of Mera's disappearance.

Summary

Back in her home of Xebel, Mera tells Nereus that they are no longer engaged.

Aquaman finds the Scavenger's submarine and throws it to the surface. He enters, but the Scavenger isn't inside, just a video connection to him.

In the Atlantean prison, Vulko realizes that the Dead King is awake and tries to warn Aquaman.

The Atlantean soldier that the Scavenger operated on is back in Atlantis being healed. Aquaman visits, only to be interrupted by the news of Mera's disappearance. He goes to find Mera.

Tula, Murk and Swatt head toward Belle Reve to try to rescue Orm.

The Dead King freezes the people of Xebel as Aquaman reaches them.

At the same time, the forces of the Scavenger descend on Atlantis, which they found thanks to a tracking device implanted in the Atlantean soldier.

Comments

Solicit text is the original text for Aquaman #20.

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

Mera has been away from Xebel for three years. She was to be married to Nereus when she returned after killing Aquaman.

Aquaman wrecks a ship to get into Xebel. Presumably one without people on it, unlike the one the Dead King wrecked.

Vulko knows a heck of a lot more than he's told Aquaman. If he hadn't been such a twerp, Aquaman would be far better prepared for all the events happening around him. For an adviser, this version of Vulko is pretty much worthless since he only reports on things after they've happened.
