Aquaman Volume 8 is a comic series under the Rebirth rebranding of DC Comics, which follows after the New 52 era. The series continues the adventures of Aquaman as he tries to balance the responsibilities of being King of Atlantis, and being a member of the Justice League. He continues his goal, with the help of his partner Mera, of bringing the surface world and Atlantis closer together despite the testy relationship between the two worlds.
The oceans rise. The earth quakes. And an ancient power rises to reclaim not just the world, but the universe itself—and not even the combined might of the Justice League can stop it. An all-new era begins with this epic by comic book legend Bryan Hitch (JLA, The Ultimates) and master storyteller Tony S. Daniel (BATMAN: R.I.P., DEATHSTROKE).
Merged with his “offspring,” the Termini, Terminus is now a 300-foot colossus bent on destroying the Earth, and the Avengers East and West teams join forces with the self-appointed Great Lakes Avengers to combat him, but to no avail. Meanwhile, Thor, his hammer incorporated into the body of the monstrous menace, has been left adrift in space. Reaching a small planetoid, the Thunder God recites Asgardian runes reactivating the spell which makes Mjolnir always return whence it was thrown, and Terminus is pulled off the Earth with several Avengers in tow. The alien giant’s lance is also his means of locomotion, so when the heroes wrest it away and hurl it into deep space, Terminus is forced to “feed” on his own energies to sustain himself, and swiftly implodes. Fortunately, Thor’s hammer escapes the resulting black hole, enabling the Asgardian Avenger to transport his teammates home.

Frank and Joe Hardy receive a telegram from their friend Tony saying that he is in danger in Alaska and needs their help. He also suggests bringing the brother’s friend, Chet Morton. At the airport they find a person following them and spying on them and they are attacked. Later the police discover that the attacker was a wanted spy: Romo Stransky.
Arriving in Alaska, they meet Ted Sewell, Tony’s helper, and he leads the boys to Tony’s camp. During the trip, Ted tells the boys about how his father disappeared and he wants them to help him find him.
At camp, Tony tells the boys that they have been attacked several times by a gang. During a search of the island, they find a knapsack, a map and a piece of jade. They later learn of a gang member going to The Devil’s Paw — a place in British Columbia.
At The Devils Paw they learn of an ancient Indian burial site where people would steal gold and jewelry. The brothers remembered the piece of jade they found in the knapsack and it might have been stolen from the burial site. They locate the ancient burial site and also find Ted Sewell’s father.
They find the camp of the gang and learn that the mysterious gang was searching for a lost rocket. They are captured, but escape with the help of their friend Chet. A radio call to the infantry leads to the arrest of the gang.

St. Urbain’s Horseman is a complex, moving, and wonderfully comic evocation of a generation consumed with guilt – guilt at not joining every battle, at not healing every wound. Thirty-seven-year-old Jake Hersh is a film director of modest success, a faithful husband, and a man in disgrace. His alter ego is his cousin Joey, a legend in their childhood neighbourhood in Montreal. Nazi-hunter, adventurer, and hero of the Spanish Civil War, Joey is the avenging horseman of Jake’s impotent dreams. When Jake becomes embroiled in a scandalous trial in London, England, he puts his own unadventurous life on trial as well, finding it desperately wanting as he steadfastly longs for the Horseman’s glorious return. Irreverent, deeply felt, as scathing in its critique of social mores as it is uproariously funny, St. Urbain’s Horseman confirms Mordecai Richler’s reputation as a pre-eminent observer of the hypocrisies and absurdities of modern life.
