Goodreads Synopsis:

An alien army has returned… and they’re not coming alone. With an aquatic army ready to destroy the Earth, the only thing standing between the planet and total annhilation is the King of Seven Seas, Aquaman, and the Justice League. 

Unfortunately, the World’s Greatest Superheroes don’t stand a chance.

In the aftermath of the Justice League’s battle with the Legion of Doom, an armada from the stars has come to plunder the Earth and its seas. With powers beyond comprehension, even Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman and the rest of the League’s combined might can’t stop these invaders. With nowhere left to turn, these heroes will have to turn to an ancient power to help them, one that even Arthur Curry fears unleashing.

Comics titan Scott Snyder masterminds his first major event of his Justice League run, in this epic graphic novel that will change the status quo for the League and Aquaman forever! Collects Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth #1, Justice League #10-12, Aquaman #40-41, Titans #28 and Aquaman/Justice League: Drowned Earth #1.


This was the first Justice League and Aquaman book I’ve read. I really enjoyed it.

I liked the way the flooding of the earth involved all of the superheroes. From Atlantis to Metropolis, everyone was fighting against the diseased the water that turned anyone who touched it into a fish monster. It even claimed a few superheroes along the way, which limited their numbers.

It was fun to see all of the characters working together. The story mostly focused on Aquaman, since it was an enemy in the water. Even a bunch of the villains were working together to beat the superheroes, including the Joker and Cheetah. I loved seeing so many familiar characters.

I really enjoyed this graphic novel!

Thank you DC Comics for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
