Merry Christmas 2008!

I posted this cover last year on Christmas, but I think--like 24 hr.-a-day cable showings of A Christmas Story--I'm going to make it an annual holiday tradition, since its one of my all-time favorite Christmas/superhero images from comics, and for a long time was the only one that included Aquaman.

The cover is by Stephen DeStefano and Larry Mahlstedt, who unknowingly have earned a special place in this AquaFan's heart for thinking to include Arthur in such cheery holiday festivities.

Thankfully, though, DC this year has brought us another two more fine examples of Aquaman and his pals enjoying the holiday season--the covers to DC Super Friends #10 by J Bone and the DC Universe Holiday Special by Frank Quitely:

Merry Christmas everyone!

Merry Christmas to you, too, Rob! And thanks for all of your blog postings this past year. The Aquaman Shrine, in particular, continues to be brilliant! Here's to more aquatic adventures in the coming year...

Merry Christmas to you too Rob! And Merry Christmas to all the Shriners! ... wait, that doesn't sound right ... Merry Christmas to everyone here at the Aquaman Shrine!

Ho Ho Ho! And I'm not talking about Dolphin.

Look! Another Arthur holiday image!


I recognize it, but I can't quite place where it came from.

Happy Holidays!
