Surf, Sea Gods And Superheroes: Justice League/Aquaman Crossover Coming This November
by Olly MacNamee
DC Comics have announced a Justice League/Aquaman crossover event happening this November in the Justice League and Aquaman comics. Entitled ‘Drowned Earth‘ it centres on the League “battling against a race of ancient and long-forgotten sea gods and an army of alien mercenaries, which in turn promises to reveal shocking secrets about Arthur Curry’s legacy, and thwart a plot to flood the planet and turn people into aquatic monsters in Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth.”
Writer James Tynion IV along with Justice League writer Scott Snyder and artists Howard Porter, Francis Manapul and Frazer Irving, plus the Aquaman team of Dan Abnett and Lan Medina are all onboard to tell this saltiest of sagas to ever have sailed the seven seas on a weekly basis this Fall/Winter.
Starting with Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth #1 (October 31st), the story will unfold, like a sail onboard a pirate ship, in Justice League #11 (November 7th) and #12 (November 21st) with part 4 in Aquaman #42 (November 21st) before wrapping up in Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth #2 in which, “Aquaman must find a way to reclaim the power of his birthright or watch the rising tides drown and corrupt everything that he holds dear. With the Justice League on the ropes and the fate of the world at stake, Arthur may have to make the ultimate sacrifice to restore balance to the land and the seas!”
You can read more about the whole affair here, or ask your LCBS to save you copies of the comics involved. Especially if, like me, you aren’t currently reading Aquaman, but are reading Justice League.
