DC Superheroes Activity Book Page - 2006

Another page from the phone book-thick DC Superheroes Activity Book, this time though it's a fun maze! Help Aquaman find Ocean Master!

As a kid, I loved mazes, and if I ever saw one in a comic book I thought nothing of marring my comic with an inky scrawl through it. (I manage to control myself with current issues of DC Super Friends)

Fun Fact: As has been stated before, this book was edited by Aquaman writer (and Shrine Patron Saint) Paul Kupperberg, giving the book a nice--if inadvertent--connection to the Sea King's past.

Fun Fact 2: Most of the AquaFans who have kids have told me they have this book, too. But for those of you who don't, click the image to go to a full-size, printable version. Perfect to give your kids something to do for a few minutes!

Update, 2 Minutes Later: Ok, I couldn't resist:

Rob, you're funny.

"...giving the book a nice--if inadvertent--connection to the Sea King's past..."

...And a headache to its editor! (Thousands of coloring book pages in mere weeks...the horror! The horror!)

I love mazes too, but I've always abhorred the complete lack of creativity in their instructions and design.

"Help Aquaman Find Oceanmaster"?

Siskoid, is that a Supertramp reference?

"So you think you're a romeo
Playing a part in a picture-show
Take the long way Orm
Take the long way Orm

Cos you're the joke of the neighborhood
Why should you care if you're feeling good
Take the long way Orm
Take the long way Orm"

I can't tell you how much my kids and I have enjoyed this DC 'phonebook'. Lots of fun. The only problem is that while the kids color Superman or Batman, I find myself wanting to color the Aquaman pictures. No denying the kid in me.
