Daily Planet - 5/8/78

Like Tuesday's house ad, this Aquaman-centric edition of The Daily Planet was sent to me by F.O.A.M. member Andy Mangels.

As nice as it is for Aquaman to get some ad love from DC (which didn't happen all that much), I'm more intrigued by the kid who wrote into The Answer Man, wondering if Sgt. Rock was a member of the JLA. Even the normally patient Bob Rozakis seems completely perplexed!

I like to post these Daily Planets on the same date as the one on the masthead. But since May 8th is a Saturday this week, today will just have to do.
Thanks Andy!

Sadly, if you read this whole page including that little bit at the bottom right about The DC Explosion, you'll notice that these were the last issue for several of the series mentioned because of said "exlosion": Batman Family, Showcase, Claw, Firestorm, and of course, Aquaman. (sigh)
