Silver Age Sub-Mariner Splash Page Sundays # 23

Not thrilled with this one. I like the lettering and the coloring but the art, although serviceable, does not make a great splash.

Marie Severin and Johnny Craig continue as artists and while the image of a horde of killer whales would probably look astonishing on film it's kind of "just there" on four-color pulp paper.

Roy continues his run as scripter but there's a very real feeling slipping in--especially considering the series' underwater setting--that there could be shark jumping at any time.
