Inside DC Spotlight - 1986

sgTwo weeks ago, during our informal Martian Manhunter Week, I posted the cover to the 1986 promo comic DC Spotlight. Not owning a copy, I wondered aloud(?) what Aquaman-centric material was inside.

Luckily, longtime Shrine reader and mastermind behind the Manhunter blog,
The Idol-Head of Diabolu, Frank Lee Delano, posted the insides of the book for me to see soon after.

That bit of kindness is not only very much appreciated, but it makes Frank the newest member of F.O.A.M.!

Sadly, the feature on the 1986 Aquaman mini-series does not feature any exclusive-to-the-book material by Craig Hamilton, as I fervently hoped it did. Nevertheless, it's still neat to see Arthur get some promo love, so click
here to see the full spread.

Thanks Frank, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!


sgAquaSighting: Over at my pal(and F.O.A.M. member) Charles Howell's swell blog
Eclectorama, he's doing an entire week of Aquaman-related posts, in honor of the year(and change) anniversary of the two of us first crossing paths--virtually, at least.

Charles has been enormously generous to me and the Shrine, and a good friend. I enjoy his blog immensely, and it'll be even more fun this week with all the orange and green stuff.

This may be a dumb question, but what the heck is Aquaman doing in that picture? It looks like he might be grabbing the front of someone's costume, but I dunno.

Just glad to help. If you wonder aloud about anything else I happen to have around the house, I'll be sure to do the same.
