Random Panel of Comic Book Weirdness # 27


Aquaman in Space!!!!! Personally, I think this concept should have been given its own series! Here's what looks to be an Infantino-inspired shot by Nick Cardy from AQUAMAN # 8. Can you imagine if Wally Wood had drawn it? Or maybe even the Sea King's later artist, Jim Aparo! Who needs a spacesuit anyway? Just gimme some waterproof gloves and the stars my destination!

Cool indeed, but don't forget Aquaman flew in space in the opening of one season of "Super Friends"--without a helmet. See 52 seconds in to this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cECx1ZeNcdw.

Immensely sad that I recall that.

Sort of reminds you of "Snakes on a Plane", doesn't it? Both are sort of....high concept....not.
