DC Comics June 1978 Calendar Page

sg
















Yes, another calendar page! This is from the 1978 DC Comics Calendar, the theme being "Super-Spectacular Disasters." The sub-theme apparently was having DC heroes take on villains they don't normally face, as you can see here with Ocean Master taking on...The Metal Men??

This nifty piece is drawn by none other than Walt Simonson, who drew the goofiest yet scariest sharks I've ever seen. The dates page tells the story, accompanied by panels by Simonson and Jim Aparo.

This page--and lots of other stuff we'll see down the line--was submitted by newest F.O.A.M. member Chuck Dill. Thanks Chuck, and we'll see you at AquaCon 2008!*

*Held in Ocean City, NJ, of course.

Aquacon 2008??

I'll be there. (You wouldn't kid about something like that, would you?)

By the way, how does one become a FOAM member? Is there a membership card? How can I join?

joining the hallowed ranks of FOAM is easy--all you have to do is send me either an actual item(or just a scan) that i can use for the Shrine--i.e. something i dont yet have.

since i have about three months worth of stuff still to post, i know its hard, but you can always email and ask!

and when you do join FOAM, yo DO get something neat!

Something you don't have? Sounds like a challenge. I think I've got a thing or two that may qualify.

When I clicked my way to the Aquaman Shrine this morning, this post really made me sit up and say, "Whaaa?!?" I'm glad you posted this page from the DC Comics calender. The Metal Men facing the Ocean Master? Now there's something you don't see everyday! I have to say, this scene is pretty cool!
