Justice League America #33 - Dec. 1989

sgComics Weekend When I talked about Aquaman's excellent two-part guest-starring role in Justice League America #s 33 and 34, I was reminded in the comments section that Aquaman actually shows up in the end of this issue!

I used to own a copy of this issue; I have no idea what happened to it and I'm a little surprised I didn't remember Aquaman's appearance myself.

Anyway, after the issue's main plot concerning Guy Gardner and Kilowog, it moves onto the sub-plot of Booster Gold and Blue Beetle ending up in possession of the remote island KooeyKooeyKooey.

They ask Kilowog if he can put together a whole resort for them, and after he promises it'll take "around six hours", the Blue and the Gold do a happy dance, as they are sure they're about to become rich beyond their wildest dreams.

Of course, there is someone else not quite so thrilled about this
...leading to this fine, heroic pin-up of the King of the Seven Seas, courtesy artists Adam Hughes and Art Nichols:
That little notation on the right hand side is someone's edict "Colorist: do not color sky" which obviously didn't get erased by the time the book went to the printers. I love stuff like that.

I loved that little note myself, and as for a pose of classic Arthur, you couldn't ask for much better than that one!
