It's Adventure Sunday!
Aquaman holds the fate of two nations in his gloved hands!
Aquaman commands some squids to shoot their ink into the sky, causing the attacking plane to crash and the pilot to bail out. After he is apprehended, Aquaman is told by the two nations that the peace treaty has been signed. It seems all is well, until the Sea King sees a Lantern Fish sending an urgent message to him!
...and so ends another adventure for Aquaman and Aqualad!
Oh man, I love that Aquaman statue at the end! I want to see that worked into New 52 continuity!
After being gone last issue, Nick Cardy returns to the strip, doing his usual superb job. I love that panel of Aquaman smashing that "swordfish" to bits--it has such great movement and violence to it.
After this adventure, Aquaman guest-starred in yet another Superman-family title (this time, Superman's Girl Friend Lois Lane #30), and then headlined his first ever solo title, with the publication of Aquaman #1. But that didn't stop him from appearing in more issues of Detective Comics, which we'll see here next week!
