Vs. Card by Alex Ross - 2005

sgThis Vs. game card featuring a dynamic, exciting shot of the Sea King by Alex Ross was one of those items I saw on ebay all the time and never quite got around to picking up, for some reason.

Thankfully, now I don't have to, thanks to newest F.O.A.M. member Doug Zawisza, who generously sent me this card(in an envelope bedecked in fish stickers) just so it could "
earn me a spot in F.O.A.M."

Done and done. Thanks Doug!

I think Ross deserves a lot of the credit for getting folks to take another look at Arthur's classic design and say "Hey, you know it was kind of cool". He gives Arthur a regal flare, and just enough of an attitude to be taken seriously.

Honestly, hook-hand Arthur is much more laughable looking now than classic orange and green AC.

That Ross Aquaman is great, he does amazing work... I also would have liked to seen Mike Wieringo's take on the classic look, the sketch from yesterday is simply awesome!

Man, I tell you, 'ol Arthur's part in Justice is the only good Aquaman tale I've read in a long, LOOONG time. Ross 'gets' him.

And thank you Rob! Glad to know the card went to a good home.
