Who's Who Update - 1987

Aquaman got one last listing in the appendix to the 1987 Who's Who Update series, reflecting the events in the 1986 mini-series and of course his new costume.

Its a fine drawing by Steve Bove, but since Craig Hamilton did such a superb job on the Who's Who entries he had drawn, I really wish they had tapped him to do this one.

I agree! Odd that they didn't have Craig Hamilton draw this one. He would have been the obvious choice.

Wasn't Steve Bove a designer for DC's marcom dept or something like that? Besides a few Who's Who entries, the only thing I remember him mostly from the Dolphin story in Secret Origins.

Do I detect a bit of a tribute to Al Williamson's Flash Gordon...?

Craig did some great work in the original Who's Who (Ocean Master especially), but did he do anything in the Update? Maybe he'd moved on by then.
