DC Superhero Checks - 2008

Last week, F.O.A.M. member Russell Burbage sent me a box filled to the walls with Aqua Stuff, an act of generosity unwatched since...he did it the last time, a few months ago!

I'll be posting all the cool doo-dads he sent me (including the Warner Bros. store picture frame I posted here, but admitted not owning, a few weeks ago), and I thought I'd start with these awesome checks, featuring Superman, Batman, Flash, and, of course, Aquaman!

They feature Jose Luis Garcia Lopez (Superman and Batman) and Eduardo Barretto (Aquaman and Flash) stock art--always a good move. They differ from a previous set that were released a few years ago, which featured Wonder Woman instead of Aquaman. Why the change, I wonder, though I'm grateful for it just the same.

Thanks Russell!

Those are awesome! I've had the ones with Wonder Woman in the past, but never saw the Aquaman ones. These are great!

I especially love that "Pay to the Order of" is in various balloons. Too cool!

I also got the address labels, which are confusing because they are printed five stickers per page, but there are only four styles. Why not add Diana or Hal (who were both in another set I have)for five for five? Odd.

I will go home and verify where I got them. I got them recently, so they are totally still available.

You know, Rob, I think Aquaman and the Flash look kind of like Eduardo Barretto to me..

upon closer examination, you are correct about EB. duly noted, sir!

I've got the checks with Supes, Bats, WW, Flash, and Green Lantern. I'd really like to get this set with Aquaman!

Are these from Checks in the Mail?

They are from www.designerchecks.com. And the labels are even nicer looking, if you can believe that. Go to the site and type in AQUAMAN. :-)
