Preview Text

Part 2 of "The Other League"! As a deadly hunter continues his murderous quest for the Atlantean trident, an unknown chapter of Aquaman's life is revealed! Before he was a part of the Justice League, Aquaman was Arthur, the man from Atlantis, and leader of a mysterious team of adventurers. Armed with weapons forged in Aquaman's past, these men and women were on their way to becoming the most powerful people on Earth – until it all came crashing down.

Synopsis

Aquaman's past comes back to visit as he investigates the death of Kahina the Seer.

Summary

Six years ago at the lighthouse on Amnesty Bay, Aquaman tries to ignore the media, who are trying to get an interview with the Aquaman on the day of his father's funeral. Aquaman finally punches down the door to the lighthouse keeper's house and faces the crowd, including Dr. Shin. Then Aquaman leaps off the cliff into the water and does not return for at least a year.

In the present, Aquaman leaves with Ya'wara to see Kahina's body. Mera insists that Dr. Shin tell her about the Others. In a flashback, we see Aquaman pursuing Manta and willing to let innocent people die to capture him. However, the rest of the team is not willing and they lose the trail. However, Kahina tells Aquaman that he will someday find happiness.

In Brazil, Ya'wara and Aquaman mourn the loss of their friend before being attacked by soldiers. In Germany, Manta stalks another member of The Others.

Comments

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

A man can be seen putting the door back after Aquaman knocks it down, and in the "one year later" scene, the door is still simply set up against the doorway, not fixed.

Aquaman calls Kahina's artifact the Seal of Clarity.

Next: Black Manta stalks the Prisoner-of-War!
