JLA Gallery Pin-Up by Steve Pugh - 1997

This is another pin-up from the 1997 JLA Gallery comic, a book that, as I mentioned previous posts, featured a surprising amount of Aquaman-centric shots (other pin-ups from the book can be found here, here, and here), giving further credence to my theory that, among comics professionals, Aquaman is a pretty popular character.

The pin-up is by artist Steve Pugh (who would end up doing his own version of a sea-faring character), and I like everything about it--the layout, the sense of movement, the slight cartooniness of it, and the pairing of Arthur and Carter, two characters that I always thought had more in common than most other members of the JLA.

sgShameless Plug Dept.: The newest issue of TwoMorrows' Back Issue, #33, is now out in digital .pdf form (the print edition ships next week), and the reason I'm mentioning it is because it features my very first piece as a gen-u-ine writer!

Its just a little thing--a one-page piece on the Mego Teen Titans line--but I'm proud of it, and seeing my name attached to an article in a magazine I really love is a tremendous thrill.

And there are more to come...!

Thanks fellas! I was excited to see it in the .pdf and it'll be even cooler to see it in actual print.

I have two bigger articles on tap for BI, and of course I'll shill for them when the time comes.
