Format: Hardcover
This volume collects issues 13-17 and Aquaman 15 and 16.

Geoff Johns and crew deliver another blockbuster right here.

Issues 13 and 14 are a two part story focusing on the League battling with Wonder Woman foe, The Cheetah. It also touches on the Superman Wonder Woman relationship that started at the end of the previous volume and reaffirms why this group likes and respects each other and they will have each others backs. The pacing of the story is very well handled and gives all the members a chance to shine. The illustrating is beautifully handled by Tony Daniel who gets an amazing coloring job making this some really fine art.

The bulk of the book, the main event, is Throne of Atlantis: in this order: JL 15, AM 15, JL 16, AM 16, and JL 17. A U. S. naval ship is taken over and it's missiles are used to attack Atlantis. King of Atlantis, Orm, the Ocean Master, Aquaman's half brother, does not take this strike lightly and initiates an attack against the U.S. north eastern seaboard. Atlantis is a force to be reckoned with to put it lightly.

The Justice League respond and it is quickly learned that the missiles were part of a master plan by someone unknown. Also, Aquaman knows how this attack will go since he helped design the plans when he was the king of Atlantis. Since this is a team book, it is reasonable to expect big action and little characterization but Johns makes sure to put the star of this story, Aquaman, through the motions, as well as have some big action. The Ocean Master gets some surprising depth as Johns does that sympathetic villain trick he loves so much, and Cyborg gets some well placed personal drama and decisions that is very welcomed as he is such a great character. The trinity get their moments as well.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
The third volume on The Justice League sees Aquaman go up against his past as Atlantis invades the east coast, flooding Gotham, Metropolis, and Boston. With the threat of an entire city being forever submerged below the waves, the Justice League must work together to somehow stop Aquaman's brother, Orm, from destroying thousands of lives, while at the same time, figure out how the whole war started in the first place. This is more like it!

I was slightly disappointed with the first two volumes of Justice League. I felt that Origin did a good job of mashing them together, but didn't leave much room for character development (except maybe Cyborg). They were just tossed together in a hurry to face off against Darkseid and his minions within the first six issues. Volume 2 felt just as hurried, at first, with the heroes going against random encounters here and there, until finally facing the major threat of David Graves. I thought that Graves provided an excellent story and his impact is still seen throughout this current volume.

Volume 3 seems much more focused than the previous two. We start with a fun battle against Cheetah, then dive straight into the Atlantean crisis. The battles are superb, and the art really is incredible - and in contrast to a major complaint I had the previous two volumes - it is also consistent. If there was anything I really could nail Volume 3 for doing wrong, it would be the nearly complete absense of Flash, and the use of the underdog JLA - not that they're bad or anything, I just don't follow them and they aren't much interest of mine. Guess I'll have to put that aside as Volume 4 will begin launch the Trinity War.

Format: Hardcover
Some comic readers grouse about Geoff Johns, but who can deny his talent? The man is a creative whirlwind! After a decade expanding and deepening the Green Lantern Universe, he has now shifted his attention to Aquaman. Why bring this up with regards to Justice League Volume 3? While a Justice League book, “Throne of Atlantis” continues Johns – who also pens the character’s solo title -- effort to make Aquaman cool again. The first two volumes of Justice League have received somewhat mixed reviews. Despite excellent character interactions, some complained that the actual story lacked the dynamism Johns’ demonstrated in other work. This volume does away with any such doubt: here Johns delivers an excellent story, Shakespearean in its themes and drama.

As always, I will maintain my strict commitment to avoid major spoilers. The first part of this volume, offers a wonderful Hors d'oeuvre. As much as any writer at DC, Johns has reveled in the creative opportunity of the “New 52” relaunch. Here he offers a new take on a classic Wonder Woman villain, as well as using it as an opportunity to deepen the complex Wonder Woman/Superman relationship and explore some of the complexity of Wonder Woman’s character. I suspect that the seeds he plants in this story will bloom later with broad implications for the larger DC universe.

As for the main course, Johns is serving sea food. A mysterious villain has engineered a war between Atlantis and the surface world. Despite the nefarious forces that start the war, Aquaman is torn – how can a king fight his own kingdom? This rich drama is further spiced by the excellent interactions between Aquaman and his team mates.
