Synopsis for "O'Ryan Gang and the Deep Six"

This story is reprinted from New Gods #4.

Seagrin, an oceanic New God, is found murdered by the police and Orion. He deduces that forces from Apokolips have found a way of screening their operations from a Mother Box. To find the "jammer", he enlists the help of his four new friends from Earth, calls himself "O'Ryan", and sends them to infiltrate Inter-Gang. They do so, and trick the Inter-Gangsters into exposing the jammer device. Orion destroys it, then seeks out the Deep Six, the murderers of Seagrin, and is caught by Slig, one of the Deep Six members.
