Synopsis
Aqualad recovers from his injuries, but has partial amnesia and believes that he must help Aquaman rescue Mera from the Sea Sorcerers, not recalling that Aquaman is currently searching elsewhere for Mera. During his search, he is captured by a race of sea creatures who force him to battle their champion in an arena. Meanwhile, Aquaman encounters a race of undersea giants and a surface man who studies them. Back in Atlantis, a sea quake strikes the city.

Indexer Notes

Story continued from Aquaman #42, story continues in Aquaman #44.

Story across 23 pages, but page 8 is a 2/3-page and pages 15 and 23 are 1/2-pages.

The Atlanteans are changed back to water-breathers as the substance that Black Manta infused into the dome of Atlantis in Aquaman #35 that forced them to become air-breathers is counteracted.
