Synopsis for "The Big Pull"
Mera reveals that, after determining the truth of Ocean Master’s story, she let him go. But Atlantis is now menaced by Black Manta, and Mera, despairing, tries to will Aquaman to return. Meanwhile, in the other realm, Aquaman finds that Brother Warnn cannot help him. Despite the girl Citizen’s attempts to induce him to stay in their church, Aquaman leaves, battling his way past guards, and is followed by the girl, who now regards him as her friend. Later, a long distance from the city, they encounter a tribe of caveman-type telepaths. The girl, offended that they use sacred telepathy outside a church, fires at them, though Aquaman deflects their shot. Her folly has now stirred the cave-tribe against them, and Aquaman prepares to do battle.

Synopsis for "The World Cannot Wait for Deadman"
Deadman finds himself in another dimension, in which he is a tangible being again, beside a beautiful girl named Tatsinda, who reveals to him that, in his home dimension, she was the sddire. She explains that the aliens capture her kind to deal with “non-entities”, that she was their prisoner for two years, and that she “rode” him to her homeworld. The two are soon joined by D'Ronal and Liana, Tatsinda’s brother and sister, but are quickly menaced by riders of giant “Depth-Crabs”, who take Tatsinda prisoner. Deadman uses his acrobatic skill and strength to defeat the crab-riders and rescue Tatsinda. In gratitude, she “rides” him back to the Earth dimension.
