AQUAMAN #30
(W) Dan Abnett (A/CA) Stjepan Sejic
"UNDERWORLD" finale! After Dolphin confronts Aquaman with the horrifying truth of King Rath's new regime, all hope for Atlantis is nearly lost until an emotional reunion with Vulko gives Arthur a renewed sense of purpose. Meanwhile, Mera attempts a dangerous new plan to penetrate the Crown of Thorns and reunite with the love of her life… at the cost of her own soul! In Shops: Nov 15, 2017
SRP: $3.99

Recently in the series, King Rath (a poor man's Ocean Master since the Aquaman villain is not available for Dan Abnett to use in the book) has also been played up as a Trump allegory, if slightly nuanced. He has taken over Atlantis, cast out those in opposition (including Aquaman) and is seeking to make Atlantis great again (and how can it not look great with Stjepan Sejic on art?)
