The King of Atlantis dives into a new era in AQUAMAN VOL. 1: THE DROWNING, as a part of the critically acclaimed, best-selling, all-new line of volume one graphic novels, DC Universe Rebirth!
He is Arthur Curry—Aquaman. King of Atlantis. Member of the Justice League. World leader. Superhero. A bridge between the surface world and the world below. And to far too many humans, the dictator of a rogue state. But Arthur and his beloved fiancée, Mera, are determined to prove to humankind that Atlantis can be a force for peace and justice.
Yet even as Aquaman strives to improve his public image, dark forces rise from the depths to crush his hopes and dreams. A cabal of Atlantean terrorists have declared war on their king and the surface world alike. And the killer known as Black Manta will stop at nothing to settle his blood feud with the hero he hates above all else.
Can Aquaman stop the tide of distrust and bloodshed? Or to save the world, will he sacrifice himself?

Meet the Author
Dan Abnett lives and works in Maidstone, Kent. After graduating from Oxford, he worked for a while as an editor of comics and children's books before turning to writing full time. In the dozen or so years since then, he has written for such a diverse range of characters--including Scooby-Doo, Thunderbirds, Conan the Barbarian, The X-Men, Johnny Bravo, Batman, Rupert the Bear, Doctor Who, Mr. Men, The Terminator and Postman Pat--that he is now clinically bewildered. He created the popular series SINISTER DEXTER, which he continues to write, along with other strips, for 2000 AD, and is currently writing AQUAMAN for DC Comics as part of DC Universe: Rebirth.
