1986 DC Comics Aquaman Mini-Series Ad

Sorry for the late week post, but I'm working on a Detroit-related special project that's taking up a lot of time. Suffice to say, there will be a lot of make-up coverage in the next few weeks.

Anyway, here's the gorgeous Craig Hamilton promo art for the 4-issue mini-series he did with Neal Pozner that should have redefined the character for the '80s. Even though it was a modest success that actually picked up readers by the last issue, a planned sequel languished in development hell, and licensing concerns did the reinvention no favors. This mini-series is especially noteworthy here because it was the book Aquaman left the Detroit League to do, and the new costume even showed up in JLofA #250.

Man I love that cover. Thanks for posting it! This was actually the first Aquaman comic I ever picked up.

I just got the new action figure in the Blue Suit. It looks great!
