Alan Davis on Aquaman - 2003

These are some beautiful character pin-ups of the Aquaman Family by Alan Davis, who was the original penciler for the 1986 Aquaman mini-series.

I have yet to interview Mr. Davis for the Shrine (although I have tried), but if you click on the image you'll read an interesting passage from TwoMorrows' Modern Masters: Alan Davis book that's all about the time he and the Sea King almost crossed paths!

Of course, Alan would eventually draw a half dozen covers for the last Aquaman series many years later, which ended up being some of my all-time favorite Aquaman covers.

I'd much rather see Alan Davis relaunch Aquaman than wait for Johns and Van Sciver to free up time. I'm not confident Johns would write the Aquaman book I'd want to read anyway. He's been getting progressively darker over the years...
