From Wikipedia: The Atlantis Chronicles was a seven-issue limited series written by Peter David and illustrated by the renowned Spanish artist of Creepy and Eerie fame, Esteban Maroto. The series takes place in Atlantis in the years following the Great Deluge. Elements of this title become major plot threads for the 1994 Aquaman series. According to a memorandum from then-editor Dick Giordano to Robert Greenberger, many of the characters and mythology used in this series were allegedly based on papers discovered by Professor R.K. Simpson of Golden Bough University in Ithaca...

Highly detailed introduction by DC editor Robert Greenberger. He succintly sets the stage for this outstanding series, explaining how in the 1990's under the leadership of Jeanette Kahn, writers and editors were allowed to push the boundries of regular comics (i.e. with projects like Watchmanand Dark Knight). The origins of Aquaman, how his race came to breath underwater, and most importantly, how his origins and universe differed from his predecessor, Marvel's Sub-Mariner. The result is a very impressive series with, can I say it again, gorgeous artwork!
