When the town of Amnesty Island is besieged by a series of shark attacks, authorities call Aquaman for help! What's unusual about this case is that the shark isn't trying to kill people-he just wants to talk to them. The very confused Jabberjaw needs to get back to Aqualand, the future undersea utopia where he came from. But that peaceful city where man and sentient sea life have been living in harmony has been turned into a dystopian nightmare created by a new Ocean Master. Now the King of Atlantis and his friendly shark ally have to team up to set things right. Also includes a Captain Caveman meets the wizard Shazam in a short story by Jeff more

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 30, 2018

    Dan Abnett's sea-based crossover goes beyond the basic comparisons between these two characters to explore some deeper themes that reside in both franchises. A healthy amount of laughs and solid artwork are let down by some pacing issues and an entirely unnecessary backup. Read Full Review
