This is what his Comic Vine entry says:http://www.comicvine.com/arthur-joseph-curry/29-43498/
Arthur first appeared in issue 40, of Aquaman (renamed with this issue: Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis). It was marked with the "One Year Later" stamp. It began with Arthur swimming downward, and eventually hearing a voice asking him his name. The voice mistakes him for Aquaman because their first and last names are the same.
The voice directs him to a large battle between King Shark, and many other sea creatures. The voice tells him to help King Shark, and the two of them hold off the sea creatures until more sharks arrive. At this point, King Shark grabs Arthur, and then the voice leads them to a creature known as the, "Dweller In The Depths". It gives Arthur a set of armor that is similar to that of the original Aquaman (orange shirt, green pants), as well as a sword.
Arthur eventually abandons his position shortly before Blackest Night, not being able to take the pressure of carrying on the original Aquaman's position. Tempest succeeds him on the throne for a short time.
He just sort of wandered off after abandoning the throne of Atlantis and hasn't been seen since. Since he wasn't received all that well as a character, I have to wonder if he even exists at all in the NuDCU.
