"DROWNED EARTH" part two! The Justice League is scattered across the Seven Seas, pursued by the Ocean Lords and their army of alien mercenaries and constantly at risk of turning into fish monsters. You know, just a day at the beach. Their only hope lies in the crippled Aquaman, who believes the road to victory lies in unleashing equally vengeful gods on Earth's oceans. Meanwhile, Batman guards the Totality in the sunken Hall of Justice, where no one can attack him...or can they?

    Lyles Movie Files - Jeffrey Lyles Nov 7, 2018

    Drowned Earth keeps delivering on an epic Justice League story. The last page doesn't offer a lot of hope that Snyder is about to make things easier for the League. While that's bad news for them, it's making this arc and book essential reading for the rest of 2018. Read Full Review

    Batman-News - Brian Warshaw Nov 8, 2018

    Drowned Earth has been a high-quality event thus far, and this is easily its best installment yet. Snyder's themes are realized expertly in the script, and Manapul's artwork deliciously brings the tale to life. Nobody published a better book this week thanJustice League #11. Read Full Review

    Dark Knight News - Bryant Lucas Nov 9, 2018

    Justice League #11is a dazzling tour de force.Snyder's bombastic script is fun and fresh, bringing a wonderful mix of high concepts and melodrama to the title. Francis Manapul might be DC's most talented artist right now, andJustice League #11 shows off his skills as both a penciller and colorist. Do yourself a favor and buy this book. I promise it's worth it. Read Full Review

    GWW - Deron Generally Nov 7, 2018

    Manapul's art is always brilliant and I particularly like the composition of the panels. My favorite one is the final panel at the end because it encompasses so much menace. Definitely a story that has me engaged as a reader. Read Full Review

    GearWERKZ - Agasicles Stamas Nov 12, 2018

    If you've been reading along with this storyline from the beginning, this is a great payoff issue and it's still not even the finale. Snyder is making excellent use of the Justice League, not featuring any one member so much that we get bored of seeing them, while also including lesser known league members who we yearn for but can wait for some space to develop to and flesh out good storylines for them.

    Weird Science - Reggie Hemingway Nov 7, 2018

    The event moves along with some dicey turns that prove to be intriguing, if not exciting. Manapul's visuals go a long way to present some of the stark scenes contained in this issue. Read Full Review

    Supergirl Comic Box Commentary - Anj Nov 15, 2018

    Overall a good middle chapter to this long arc as well as an issue which felt thematically similar to those of this title which preceded it. I doubt I'll buy the non-JL issues (at least not until they hit the buck box) but I enjoyed this book on its own. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Nov 7, 2018

    Justice League #11 left us bracing for the worst when these heroes are seeing exactly what can come of the world when they aren't handling their problems with haste. That is how you end up with dead gods, a flooded world, and losses at every turn because your enemy just so happens to have things a bit more figured out than you. At the end of the day it is exciting to know that heroes of this caliber can still face dangers that can put their backs against the wall. Read Full Review

    Green Lantern Corps - iggy Nov 7, 2018

    Drowned Earth continues to be a thrilling ride through the sea. A reminder that superhero comics should embrace the larger than life ideas, and don't feel the need to be ashamed at what comics were, and how you can mold that for future comic readers. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Derek McNeil Nov 7, 2018

    Aquaman doesn't often get a chance to take center stage in a Justice League adventure, so it is great that this storyline allows Arthur to enjoy the limelight. It looks like Aquaman is finally being recognized as an A-list superhero. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Philip Schweier Nov 7, 2018

    This issuereinforces to me one of the pitfalls of modern comics. ITs a single chapter ina larger story. As such, Im not terribly moved toward picking up subsequentinstallments. Casual readers may feel the same, content to wait for the trade.But if everyone felt that way, would there even be a trade to wait for? Read Full Review

    On Comics Ground - Timothy Quail Nov 7, 2018

    This storyline is aggressively mediocre. The concept is solid but the execution is lacking. Maybe if this was streamlined into Aquaman or Justice League ONLY, it could have been a fun 3-4 issue arc. As it stands it is bloated and putting the momentum of Justice League to a halt. Feel free to skip these issues, unless you want to look at the beautiful artwork. Read Full Review

    Given more space to breathe, it's possible to see this story hitting the same highs as Justice League #11, but the pressure is too great for just one issue here. Read Full Review

    The Batman Universe - Corbin Pool Nov 9, 2018

    I find myself losing interest in this comic. Consistent problems in the script are making me feel apathetic about the whole thing. Manapul's art is gorgeous, though, and it gives me something pretty to look at. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Corps - Mike Bedard Nov 7, 2018

    It does end with a nice cliffhanger with the Legion of Doom teleporting into Batman's lair. It seems as though things will return to the previous storyline, and hopefully Snyder can make good on the teaser that was the Batman Who Laughs. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Robert Struble Nov 10, 2018

    A needlessly epic story, another pointless end of the world story, and dull art combine to make this crossover rather boring. I wonder if Snyder hit his peak some time ago. Read Full Review
