Comic Book Guy's Guide To Life, Part 3 - 2006

This is the last Aquaman-related selection from the mini-hardcover book The Comic Book Guy's Guide to Life, just one small speck in the massive Simpsons global merchandising onslaught, sent to me by F.O.A.M. member Brian "Plaid Stallions" Heiler. Thanks Brian!

Like every pop culture target The Simpsons takes aim at, the subject is both beloved and mocked at the exact same time. As I've mentioned before, Aquaman has earned an inordinate amount of appearances/mentions on the show (around a half a dozen, I believe), so I bet at least someone on the staff is a fan.

It's the use of the correct logo that grabs me! Well, that and the quite good Barbara Walters joke.

This entire book is a must read for any Simpsons/Aquaman fan. It's a riot.
