It's Aquaman's first day on the job as King of Atlantis and he's got a LOT of catching up to do. Luckily, he has his two trusted royal advisors to back him up – Vulko, the scholar, and Mera, the water controlling warrior-princess. As he faces unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time, and his own half-brother's attempts to overthrow him, Aquaman must rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects—and himself—that he's the right man for the throne!
