This winter, it’s not safe to go in the water.
Back in September, USA TODAY announced “Throne of Atlantis,” a crossover of epic proportions that will be spanning across the pages of JUSTICE LEAGUE and AQUAMAN.
While next week's AQUAMAN #14 serves as a prelude to the event, “Throne of Atlantis” will officially kick off in JUSTICE LEAGUE #15, followed immediately by part two in AQUAMAN #15. With both issues hitting shelves on December 26, writer Geoff Johns teased what readers can expect from each series and “Throne of Atlantis” at large.
“It’s the Justice League going up against Atlantis,” Johns described to MTV GEEK. “The complexities to that, what Atlantis is, why they attack, what are their view points is really at the heart of the story. The politics and the laws of Atlantis are extremely different than ours and the reasons they attack are a set of circumstances that are a mystery at the center of the story. What triggers the war is a part of the mystery that unravels.”
Below, take a first look at Ivan Reis and Joe Prado’s interior art for JUSTICE LEAGUE #15.
