Hembeck Strip

Another one of Fred's original strips, done for DC's Daily Planet feature page back in the day (like yesterday's, this recolored version is courtesy the awesome Hembeck Files site).

As a kid, one of the things that drew me the most to Fred's work was the idea of the various DC heroes as working stiffs--guys who were employed, in some fashion, as Comic Book Heroes, which came with its own set of problems and annoyances, as does any job.

In a post-Superman: The Movie world, I could see why Aquaman would be feeling a tad jealous, as he does here...
