"As these stories begin, Aquaman has renounced the throne of Atlantis - until, from a forgotten corner of the ocean, emerges the threat of the Trench! Then, Aquaman joins up with his old teammates, The Others, to learn who destroyed Atlantis!" reads DC's solicitation. "But as they seek the truth, Black Manta is stalking them all-and Mera learns some dark truths about Aquaman! And in the 'Throne of Atlantis' epic, Aquaman teams up with his Justice League comrades to defend the surface world from the invading Atlantean horde."

Artists on these stories include Ivan Reis, Joe Prado, Pete Woods, Paul Pelletier, Claude St. Aubin, and Geraldo Borges.

This omnibus was not included in Diamond's Previews catalog, but retailers have until October 1 to order this $75 hardcover for a planned December 12 on-sale date.

The Aquaman movie is scheduled to debut December 14 in the United Kindom (and some other territories), followed by a North American release on December 21.
