He's lost his kingdom. He's lost his memory. He may even have lost his mind. He is Arthur Curry, the former king of Atlantis, a founding member of the Justice League...and he has no idea where he is, how he got there...or how to escape.

The maritime monarch has washed up on the shores of a remote island where nothing is as it seems. In the mysterious town of Unspoken Water, the people fear the wrathful sea. Aquaman befriends an enigmatic young villager named Caille--but he dreams of a redheaded woman with whom he shares an unbreakable bond.

But even as his queen, Mera, attempts to locate the amnesiac Arthur, a new enemy is rising out of the depths...

A new era for the Sea King begins in the AQUAMAN VOL. I: UNSPOKEN WATER! Join the all-star creative team of Kelly Sue DeConnick (Caption Marvel, Pretty Deadly) and Robson Rocha (SUPERGIRL, TEEN TITANS) as they take Aquaman deep into uncharted waters!
