Aquaman by Amy Walsh - 2008

Last Friday, I posted an Aquaman-centric page from the newest issue of DC Super Friends (#6), but I think this is actually the coolest thing in the book.

This crayon portrait, by a little girl named Amy Walsh, appeared on the letters page, where Johnny DC is always encouraging kids to send in drawings of their favorite heroes. Amy, as you can see, has exceptional good taste in heroes.

Nice job, Amy!

Post Script: Amy's piece reminds me of another tribute to Aquaman, one that was made especially for me by my pal Simon Fraga, age 5:
Simon's parents were the ones who introduced Tracy and I, so I'm repaying them the best way I know how: giving their son lots and lots of comics.
