Candy Comic - 1981

sgWe finish off our Aquaman Dinner Party with a little candy for dessert (I know, it makes no sense, just go with me on this). This was a mini-comic, packaged with some enamel-destroying candy by the Leaf company (whoever that is). I'm not exactly sure where and in what capacity these were sold, but they're a nice little treat that you don't see a lot of anymore. As usual, this was one of a series, along with the usual DC suspects.

As the cover suggests, this 14-page comic re-tells the origin of Aquaman(before they went and screwed it all up), with art by Don Heck and cover by the always-rock-solid Dick Giordano.

Yeah Leaf makes baseball cards and non sports cards, these were produced and came in boxes of 36 with a variety of main stream DC characters covered. You can still find a case occasionally on EBAY, there was on there last week as a matter of fact.
