Nico & Aquaman

Say hello to Nico Spatucci, born on September 10 to my friends Steve and Sharon Spatucci!

Steve and I have known a couple of years now, and he has been instrumental in helping me with some of the technical challenges the Shrine has presented me with (I recorded the interview with Norman Alden at his house), which made him an automatic F.O.A.M. member.

That makes Nico a Legacy, which means he is automatically a F.O.A.M. member, too!

So you can imagine my relief when Steve sent me this message regarding the WB Aquaman Beanie that arrived at their house yesterday: "
I handed it to Nico immediately, and you can see the results. Sharon suggested using the caption, 'Aquaman is NOT the least popular superhero!'

I realized as soon as he had it that I haven't seen him really hold anything--but he grabbed hold of Aquaman with no problem.

Aquaman is Nico's first superhero, as was your plan."

I can only hope this starts a lifelong love of the Aquatic Avenger, leaving me another person to potentially bequeath the Shrine to when I retire.

Congratulations Steve and Sharon!

Really sweet - God bless the Spatuccis!

But in that second pic, it does look like he wants Aquaman mainly -

Great weekend,

Gotta' get 'em hooked to comics young, haha. Great, training the next generation of Aqua-fans....maybe it will be their generation that finally knows the Sea King in a series that is worthy of him!
