Super Dictionary, Part 3 - 1978


It's Tuesday again, so it's time for another installment of the DC Super Hero Dictionary!

This time we have panels of Aquaman art by Ramona Fradon, featuring Aquaman participating in the most insane game of baseball ever played. This is what I imagine the world looks like to Barry Bonds.

The second panel is a lift from a JLA comic, since the art is by the sturdy, dependable Dick Dillin, and the third looks pretty darn Aparo-ish to me, though of course its hard to tell from this angle.

"When Aquaman dipped his feet in the water, a fish bit them." As if!

The book is surreal.

That Dick Dillin Aquaman looks like it's from JLA #150, where Aquaman finds the underwater entrance to The Key/Star Tsar's headquarters. I wonder if the Ramona Fradon art was reprinted in the recent Showcase Presents collection...

I like the baseball game. But, is the octopus signaling ball or strike?

Aquaman went over to the Marvel universe and stole The Tarantula's shoes.

That's got to be the geekiest thing I've ever written.
