EXCLUSIVE: Justice League, Aquaman 'Drowned Earth' Solicits for November 2018

Earth... is doomed.

In November, DC's Justice League and Aquaman series will collide for a five-part crossover, "Drowned Earth," which will explore the origins of Atlantis, kill an old god or two, introduce an entirely new pantheon... and just maybe destroy our planet along the way. Scott Snyder and James Tynion IV spoke with us earlier today about the storyline, and now, CBR has the exclusive first look at the solicitations text and cover art for each issue of the story.
