Aquaman Pajamas - 1976

This is the top part of a pajama set I've never ever seen before, sent to me by F.O.A.M.er David Marshall. Thanks David!

These PJs feature a beautiful Aquaman piece by Neal Adams, originally produced for the 1976 DC Comics Calendar and used in other places. Interesting treatment of the logo--its the standard Aquaman font, but the letters are put on a flat line instead of their usual curve. I think this is the only time I've ever seen that.

David became a member of F.O.A.M. by sending in an entry for the Aquaman Casting Call Contest, and when he sent me this piece he wanted me to mention his friend Shawn Gwilt, who helped him compile the cast list and is always looking for rare and/or new Aqua-merch to send David's way.

That sounds like a Friend of Aquaman to me, so welcome to F.O.A.M., Shawn, and drop us a line some time yourself, why don't ya?

Very cool! I remember some Heroes World ads that showed Batman, Superman and Shazam! PJs that came from that calendar. I guess this was part of that same set?

By the way, did anyone ever find out where the Aquaman pajamas came from in Superman Returns? It sure looked like the infamous lil' Super-Son was wearing Aquaman pajamas in the final scene of the movie where his creepy stalker dad comes to visit him in the night.
