When Atlantis is struck by a U.S. Naval missile gone awry, Atlantis--led by Aquaman's brother Ocean Master--attacks the East Coast of the United States flooding its major cities such as Boston, Metropolis, Gotham City and several others. The Justice League comes together to help Aquaman turn back the tide, but they soon learn that they are woefully overmatched by the Atlantean Army, and must find a way to save the world from total annihilation. Collects Justice League issues #13-17 and Aquaman #15-16.
Keep up the good work, Geoff!
When I heard about this crossover event, I thought: "This is the very sign of desperate. But this is Geoff Johns we're talking about, so of course, he proved me wrong. The "Aquaman" and "Justice League" comics blend in pretty well here.
The stuff I like:
1.) If you know me, then one of the reasons is pretty obvious. The only thing I can tell you is to read Issues 13-14, which are collected in this book.
2.) This is the Justice League's biggest threat since Darkseid's invasion on Earth. But unlike that incident, the world is on the brink of war against Atlantis.
3.) This story arc had a lot of twists and turns, like who the real villain turns out to be.
4.) Just like Volume 2, it had an element from the Justice League series by Bruce Timm. The Flash isn't in this event, so if you've watched the animated series, then you know that all the Leaguers are in the same episode.
5.) Not only does it leave a good cliffhanger, but it hints out that the League is going to bring in more members since GL has left the team. I never read the single issues leading up to Trinity War (or the event itself), so I don't know who joins the League.
The stuff I don't like:
Nothing. This is a flawless comic unlike the first two volumes.
