Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
TL;DR version: Amnesia and bad continuity have left Wonder Woman unsure of her abilities, so she asks the JLA to monitor her next 12 missions to make sure she's still fit for duty.

This issue, it's Aquaman's turn to stalk, er, "monitor" Wonder Woman. Warning to Aquaman fans: This is not his finest hour.
(select panels from a 20-page story)

On board the Justice League satellite, a mysterious armored figure is on trial. Wonder Woman proclaims his guilt:

Aquaman testifies that he was swimming up the East River to begin keeping an eye on WW, when a waterspout appeared:

She's knocked for a loop, but quickly recovers:

With that taken care of, Wonder Woman returns to her job at the United Nations as Diana Prince. Aquaman puts on civilian clothes to blend in with the crowd, and keeps tabs on her in his own unique way:

Ooh, foreshadowing!

Back on the street, Diana and her boss Morgan pass a guy walking his dogs. Suddenly, the dogs grow in size and go on the attack:

By this point, you'd think Wonder Woman would suspect that something is up, but she's a little distracted:

Speaking of distracted, Aquaman has forgotten that he can only spend an hour at a time out of water, and is starting to feel weak. He heads for a nearby fountain for a drink, but the water transforms into a gusher of oil:

Wonder Woman disposes of the coal, and resumes her trip to Paradise Island, not even noticing poor Aquaman suffocating down below her. Lucky, Aquaman is able to knock over a kid's soda, which is enough to revive him.

The fish informs Aquaman that some serious shit is going down in Atlantis. He goes to investigate.

Aquaman sees the people of Atlantis preparing for war. Meanwhile, Wonder Woman finds that the Amazons have moved their island directly over Atlantis, and are ready to attack. Who could be behind all this?

Back at the present-day trial, Mars complains that all this is hearsay. Aquaman plays his trump card: a rare breed of lungfish that was on the scene with him, and can repeat anything it's heard, like a parrot:

Mars is bored with ordinary wars, and figured that an Amazons vs. Atlanteans fight will perk him right up. Aquaman summons a group of whales to keep the two armies separated, while Diana takes care of business:

(Hey, who you callin' a "ho"? Mars clearly hasn't read the Community Guidelines.)

(Insert your own "shrinkage" joke here.) The JLA find Mars guilty, and ship him off to an intergalactic prison. Wonder Woman idly wonders which hero will be monitoring her next mission...

'(Hey, who you callin' a "ho"? Mars clearly hasn't read the Community Guidelines.)'

You are so awesome.

I really like the way Wonder Woman looks in these scans. Not usually a fan of her, not for any reason other than I just never got into her stories, but I like these images.

DAMN! I was going to go there. Like, "Man, after Flashpoint Mars must be laid out in Olympus in a massive equivalent of a food coma.

'Morgan Tracy's pet goldfish telepathically relayed the conversation...'

OK, that explains how YOU heard it, Arthur...now can you explain how the GOLDFISH heard it?

Goldfish keep very quiet about their numerous sensory skills. A good spy network never reveals all their capabilities...

Judging from the art, someone sold Morgan some miniature prehistoric sea monsters and just called them goldfish. Placoderms have great hearing.

Ares, it's about time you started researching alternative energy sources.

The second panel in the second scan totally looks like a pornface.


Wait, hang on.

Never change your clothes near a fish tank, ladies. Aquaman's watching.

I'm going to show my age here, but this is the very first comic I ever owned. I was 6, and my dad took me to the local convenience store to get ice cream and "any comic book I wanted."

I still have it- it's battered and torn, and at one point i doodled in some of the panels to make the fight scenes "more exciting" - but for me, this will always be THE comic. :)

I always loved when heroes sat down to talk at a table.
