Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I received this book via Netgalley in return for an honest review. I really enjoyed this Justice League graphic novel, focusing on Aquaman and some sea creatures that came from outer space. I also liked the inclusion of the city of Atlantis in the story telling. The pictures and graphic illustrations were awesome too.
Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth find the Ocean Lords risen and intent on destroying Earth. Ancient Alien Ocean Gods that had been locked in the Graveyards of the Gods run rampant destroying Earth with dark water and turning everyone it touches into sea monsters. The Justice League fight while down one man as Batman is still recovering from the battle against Barbatos. It will take Aquaman and Meara both to fight the hell that the Legion of Doom as unleashed on Earth along with the few friends left unchanged. With unstoppable action and a whole new original story arc, Drowned Earth takes readers on a thrilling ride as Atlantis once again must save the day. I love that Meara takes on more of a central role in this book and enjoyed her character development, My voluntary, unbiased review is based upon a review copy from Netgalley.
I will literally read a grocery list by Scott Snyder—everything he writes is fantastic! Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth is no exception. Earth is being flooded by purple alien waters. Whomever the water touches turns into a rampaging fish-monster bent on killing any human remaining on Earth. Three ocean deities from other galaxies are determined to transform the world’s population into faithful followers of themselves. Only the Justice League can stop them! The Drowned Earth story arc appeared across multiple book series including Justice League, Aquaman, and Titans. It is nice to see it all in one place in this hardcover compilation. The use of different artists, depending on the book series, means that the art isn’t very consistent across the full book though it is always consistently good. I rather liked the variety as it allowed me to see different styles applied to the same characters. However, some may find it distracting. The plot was revving on all cylinders as is usual with a Scott Snyder story. There really is very little discussion or downtime for our heroes. It is mostly fighting or defending the entire time. I know that Aquaman is popular now that the movie has been released but I still have a soft spot for Batman, who is used to good effect in a small subplot during the story. Overall, while I liked Justice League/Aquaman: Drowned Earth, it is probably better suited for readers who have kept up with the Justice League stories. Rather than beginning here, if you are new to DC, begin with Dark Nights: Metal. However, this book deserves 4 stars! Thanks to DC Comics and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
