Preview Text

Aquaman has been left for dead in the middle of the desert! But how did the King of Atlantis find himself marooned in such a hellish environment? As Aquaman struggles to survive impossible odds, what extreme measures will he resort to in order to stay alive?

Synopsis

Aquaman ends up in the desert after trying to help the military with an ancient Atlantean artifact.

Summary

The military calls Aquaman after an artifact they pried off the wall that Aquaman and Mera brought up from the Trench starts to broadcast. While examining the device, the base is attacked by Atlanteans who steal it and attempt to flee. Aquaman manages to hitch a ride with them, but in the ensuing fight the craft explodes and Aquaman ends up in the desert.

Aquaman finds the craft and the device, along with the dead Atlanteans. He puts the device in water and sees a recording that says Atlantis is in danger of being sunk.

Aquaman is rescued by the Navy, but Mera is out when he returns to the lighthouse.

Comments

This issue features a 1:25 B&W variant wraparound cover.

Commander Clay calls Aquaman on his cell phone. Aquaman asks how he got the number, but Clay does not answer that question.

The message from the Atlantean's talks about pursuing the enemy into the ocean, and also talks about being lied to by the King and Queen. There is also the note that the enemy wants to sink Atlantis. This suggests that the enemy is Atlan, aka the Dead King.

Near the end of the book Dr. Shin is watching a TV comedian make fun of the fact that Aquaman was rescued from the desert by the Navy.

Mera left Aquaman a note that she'd gone to town to get dog food. The "next issue" tease says "Mera vs. the World".

Characters: Commander Clay, other military personnel, Atlantean soldiers, a hallucination of Aquaman's father, Shin

Locations: Amnesty Bay, an unnamed military base, the desert
