Strip by Fred Hembeck - 1978

Aquaman didn't make that many appearances in those neat-o Hembeck strips that used to run in the "Daily Planet" feature in DCs of the late 70s and very early 80s; so I was always glad to see him get a chance to be drawn with those curlycue elbows.

If I ran DC, the first thing I would do is...bring the letters pages back. The second thing I would do is re-hire Fred and get him to do new strips for the books.

Hear, hear, buddy! I couldn't agree more! That's exactly what I would do too, if I ran DC.

At first I didn't see the rounded corners, so I thought they were referring to the fact that Aquaman's hand keeps hovering over Wonder Woman's chest.

I think my version was funnier! :)

Darn! I didn't get the round corners thing until Shag mentioned it, lol.

Still, I love these strips, they should bring them back.
