A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
Well no one may have drowned near you, Aquaman, but that doesn’t really keep it from happening other places.
Did I miss a cameo from Spider-Man? Your feet seem stuck to the ground/ocean with some webs.
And wow, what a grim word to include, Super Dictionary. Were you just really looking for some more things for Aquaman to do?
Also: kudos on your stellar disguise for Mera. Making her blonde and giving her flippers will totally make her look like not-Mera. The crown and the earrings don’t give it away at all. It’s almost as good as your disguise for Garth as Aquaman’s “young friend.”
He can order around poor, defenseless sea creatures for no reason. That’s what he can do.
That looks like an abuse of power to me, Aquaman.
Look how sad that…walrus(?) is. He is so sad.
Your smarmy face says it all:
I bet that fish really regretted it when he realized he’d just bitten his lord and sovereign.
I’m also really amused that Arthur just dips his feet in like a prissy little girl before he dives on in. It seems very…un-Aquaman-y of him.
That octopus is probably wondering what the hell Aquaman is doing swimming through its cavern.
It looks kind of like a brain to me. And with the definition in store, maybe it is just a brain.
I’m going to have to disagree with you, Super Dictionary. Corals are not made of the bones of tiny sea animals. They’re made of hardened calcium carbonate secreted by the corals themselves. And corals are not stones. They’re living things.
You’re really terrible at this, Super Dictionary. Maybe you should just go home.
All I could think of when I saw this was this 1935 short entitled “Donkey Baseball”.
But before your peals of laughter subside from Manatee Baseball (with special guests octopus, whales, and turtle!), check out Aquaman’s cro-magnon expression:
It couldn’t be…Aqualad???!!!
Oh, no, just Aquaman’s young friend, feeding the fish. Teaching them to never care for themselves. Fattening them up for the sharks.
Unless those are the fish they’re really caring for by feeding these fish. How convoluted!
And of course Aquaman’s “friends” care for him. He is their king and overlord, after all. It’s part of their duty as his royal subjects to like him. Or at least pretend to like him.
What use would Aquaman be for building a bridge? Get the fish out of the way? Make sure they don’t get attacked by sharks?
I guess he could help do some of the legwork underwater, but he’s just one man. And he’s a man whose own kingdom means a lot more to him than the surface world.
But I guess this is 1970s Aquaman, so he’s much more buddy-buddy with landlubbers.
Holy crap Aquaman, did you sink that boat you swam under a few pages ago? Was that why you were swimming under it? To sink it? I didn’t think that bayou poaching scum deserved that for a fate.
Maybe El Dragón was chasing it to stop you.
