    Default Diana and Aquaman In "Justice Leauge/Aquaman: Drowned Earth" November 2018 Event

    AQUAMAN AND THE JUSTICE LEAGUE GET FLOODED THIS NOVEMBER IN JUSTICE LEAGUE/AQUAMAN: DROWNED EARTH

    Knowing what James Tynion IV has planned for Wonder Woman and Justice League Dark in October’s “New Justice” event, JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK/WONDER WOMAN: THE WITCHING HOUR, you’d think that members of the League would get some well-deserved downtime afterward, especially with Thanksgiving on the horizon.



    Well, guess again! Tynion’s back at it for all of November and this time he’s bringing help. Get ready for a soggy Thanksgiving at the Hall of Justice (as in underwater, like the rest of the world will be) when the award-winning writer is joined by the JUSTICE LEAGUE crew of writer Scott Snyder with artists Howard Porter, Francis Manapul and Frazer Irving, plus the AQUAMAN team of Dan Abnett and Lan Medina. Together they’ll pit the League against a race of ancient and long-forgotten sea gods and an army of alien mercenaries, reveal shocking secrets about Arthur’s legacy, and thwart a plot to flood the planet and turn people into aquatic monsters in JUSTICE LEAGUE/AQUAMAN: DROWNED EARTH.



    The saga begins with JUSTICE LEAGUE/AQUAMAN: DROWNED EARTH #1 by Tynion IV and Porter, on sale October 31. This 48-page one-shot introduces the Ocean Lords--ancient and powerful deities with an axe to grind against both Aquaman and Wonder Woman and a plan to flood the world. As the rest of the League races to stop the waters from rising, Arthur faces off against his nemesis Black Manta in a must-win battle if he is to retain his connection to the world’s oceans.



    The action continues November 7 in JUSTICE LEAGUE #11, written by Snyder with art by Manapul. Pursued by the Ocean Lords and their army of alien warriors and at risk of turning into inhuman fish monsters, the League is scattered across the seven seas. A crippled Aquaman believes he holds the key to victory, but it would mean unleashing a different revenge-driven god upon Earth’s oceans. Meanwhile, remember the Totality, that rogue piece of the Source Wall that’s been bouncing around? Well, a certain Dark Knight has been guarding it in a now-sunken Hall of Justice. He seems to think that no one can attack him there, but that might not be exactly true…

    JUSTICE LEAGUE #12 opens the third part of Drowned Earth on November 21, with Tynion stepping as writer and featuring art by Frazer Irving. This promises to be one of the craziest fights in comics as a bed-ridden Batman, complete with full body cast, takes on the Legion of Doom – The Joker, Lex Luthor, Gorilla Grodd and Sinestro! Meanwhile, Aquaman crosses tridents with Poseidon and Mera discovers an ancient secret that could change the fate of Atlantis, if not the entire planet!

    November 21 also showcases Abnett and Medina’s AQUAMAN #42, a tie-in story where Aquaman and Wonder Woman have discovered the secret to turning the tide against the Ocean Lords in the mysterious Graveyard of Gods. However, Arthur begins to think that the League may be fighting the wrong foe when he learns a startling secret about Atlantis. Arthur must join forces with Mera and confront the Ocean Lords with this newfound knowledge and learn the truth before the flood changes all life on Earth!

    The Drowned Earth event reaches its conclusion on November 28 in the 48-page AQUAMAN/JUSTICE LEAGUE: DROWNED EARTH #1. In this blockbuster finale, 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!

    JUSTICE LEAGUE/AQUAMAN: DROWNED EARTH #1
    AQUAMAN/JUSTICE LEAGUE: DROWNED EARTH #1
    Those two titles seems tailor-made to confuse buyers.

    "...thwart a plan to drown the Earth."

    Do they mean before or after thousands of innocent people are already murdered in yet another mass killing that heroes failed to prevent?

    If ten years of recording The Young and the Restless for my mother have taught me anything, it's that characters in serial dramas are always happily in love...until they're not

    Since this arc is focusing on both Aquaman and Wonder Woman, this would be a great avenue to bring back Queen Clea.

    The Aquaman connection is obvious but I wonder what Diana's connection will be?

    I guess what kicks off this event is that Cheetah kills Poseidon.
