THE UNDERSEA WORLD THREATENS TO SLIP INTO CHAOS AND WAR...
...AND AN UNWILLING HERO MUST BECOME KING OF THE SEVEN SEAS!
Raised in isolation, young Arthur Joseph Curry has a singular gift--the ability to breathe underwater. In a cataclysmic storm, Arthur is swept out to sea, where he discovers the world and people of the oceanscape--the vast underwater civilization that exists beneath the waves.
Desperate to find his missing father, Arthur is drawn deeper into a turbulent conflict that threatens the lives of millions. Can he abandon a people who see him as their long-lost savior? Can he convince them he is nothing more than another lost soul in search of home? Or can he possibly become the hero they so desperately need?
From the Eisner Award-winning writer Kurt Busiek (ASTRO CITY, Marvels) and the Eisner-nominated illustrator Butch Guice (ACTION COMICS, Captain America) comes the beginning of Arthur's quest, as he takes his first steps toward becoming a legend.
