Great cover: the lonely king. And who knew undersea life could be so complicated? We have two undersea civilizations, one called Xebel, which is the original home of Mera, who’s just returned there. The other is Atlantis, where Arthur is supposed to be king, but is being undercut on all sides by rivals and enemies. There are plenty of surprises for both of them, not the least is a very large, very old entity with icy powers who claims to be the REAL King of Atlantis. And there are still loose Atlantean weapons out there causing trouble, too. Writer Geoff Johns keeps things circulating well, and the art by Paul Pelletier and Sean Parsons is looking better with every issue.
