Another story that comes to a titanic conclusion is "Throne of Atlantis," the crossover between the "Justice League" and "Aquaman" books. As if the previous chapter had not been explosive enough, this fifth installment takes the action to yet another level with a three-faction war involving Atlantis, the League, and the Trench. Regardless of the outcome, the true winner is Orm, a.k.a. Ocean Master, becuase in just a few issues, Johns was able to develop his character to make him complex, multi-layered, and easy to sympathize with; not a trace of the stereotypical villain he used to be.

Another one who takes the glory with "Throne" is Ivan Reis; there is no limit to this guy's versatility. From the stormy first page focusing on the lighthouse in Amnesty Bay, to the breathtaking spread featuring the reserves against everyone else, to Arthur and Orm's moving expressions, Reis is simply an unvaluable asset to DC right now. The satisfying resolution to this story proves that crossovers and big arcs need to be the ones doing the talking, and not the hype around them.
