Aqua T-Shirts, Part 5

This is another Aquaman T-shirt from the vast collection of F.O.A.M. member extraordinaire Russell Burbage.

This is probably the most "famous" of all the Aquaman t-shirts...its one I see most often worn at cons, and I think that's due to its simplicity: classic Aquaman shot by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, plus the logo. Done and done.

Thanks Russell!

I like this one a lot. I think what tends to make it so popular is that while we Aqua-fans love the color orange, we don't necessarily want it to always be the main color of our t-shirts LOL And a lot of Aquaman t-shirts are, indeed, orange. This is one of the best looking ones that isn't.

I have this one, and I think it's popularity is partially due to the fact it was widely available at Target stores for some time.

Yeah, I was just going to say the same thing, it was sold at every Target in America, while most comic shirts are only available through websites and specialty stores.

My fav is the relatively recent Alex Ross one from his Justice series. It's blue with a dynamic Ross print of the Sea King leading his creatures into battle. Nobody draws a more regal Aquaman than Ross.

Russell said...

Shellhead: I've got that. :-) It's coming up in the chronology.

I like that one too. The only comment I have heard is that Arthur's orange looks more like yellow on that shirt, but I do love the finny friends with him on that one.

I also have this shirt. I actually found it at a flea market last summer for $3.00. It was brand new and still had the tags.

I have that shirt too, it's one of my favorite (and I have quite a bunch of DC superheroes's shirts).

Hugs from Chile!

Well, and it was one of the most commonly distributed. I bought one from Target.
