January 29--Aquaman's Birthday!

sgToday's The Day! Yes, according to the 1976 DC Comics Calendar, today is Aquaman's birthday!

In some ways, this is a particularly rough birthday for the big guy--in the current DCU, he's a member of the undead, concerned with nothing else but eating flesh and tearing out hearts. Yuck. Luckily, he does appear monthly in the DC Super Friends book, and will headline the next issue of Brave and the Bold.

Even better--on the world's TV and toy shelves, Aquaman's presence couldn't be bigger! He's a regular on the superb Brave and the Bold show, where he is treated with respect, admiration, as well as a healthy dose of humor.

And thanks (mostly) to the show, you can find a couple different Aquaman action figures on sale at any given moment, as well as lots of ancillary B&B merchandise with ol' Arthur on it.

As a way to celebrate Arthur's big day (his 69th!), I'm going to be doing small-to-mid-size posts all day, so you have to keep checking back in throughout the day to see what's new.

Happy Birthday, Aquaman!
