The series begins with Aquaman’s first day on the job as king of Atlantis, and he’s got a lot of catching up to do.

Between dealing with unscrupulous surface dwellers, elder evils from beyond time and his own half-brother who wants to overthrow him, Aquaman is going to have to rise to the challenge and prove to his subjects, and to himself, that he’s the right man for the trident!
