I haven't read all of it, but it started with Aquaman/Arthur and Mera living happily on land, by the ocean. Arthur is still half-Atlantean (on his mother's side) and he goes back and forth between ruling Atlantis and being a superhero, and working with the Justice League (and he is aware that he is the butt of jokes.)

...It would be then be an all out Atlantean invasion, but it wouldn't go too far thanks to Arthur, who would take the throne once again and kill or imprison Orm.

It could very much be like Star Wars. It could have the advanced Atlantean tech mixed with the mystical/mythological stuff. The Atlantean tech would be interesting to see since it could be mysterious, advanced and ancient at the same time (kind of like Krypton in Man of Steel, but tied to the ocean environment in design and function.)

So there could be great action scenes mixed with strange alien-like creatures, and all the politics/intrigue of Atlantis etc.

In terms of mystical stuff, "Sword of Atlantis" had great art and design and had a lot of "Game of Thrones" style of mythology, and strange creatures etc. Not that they should follow that storyline, but it had a great look.
