Comics Buyer's Guide #1453 - 2001

F.O.A.M.er Ilke Hincer sent me link to an eBay auction selling this issue of the venerable Comics Buyer's Guide newspaper, which featured an "Aquaman at 60" cover story. Wow, I never knew this existed!

The article (by Steve Horton) is only three pages long, with lots of images, but nevertheless manages to hit all the major points of Aquaman's then-60 year-long publishing history:

Even though this article is almost a decade old, its still nice to see Aquaman get such attention. Maybe some other comics mag will do an "Aquaman at 70" piece next year?

Thanks to Ilke for the tip!

Not sure, but 75 is always an anniversary date that seems to get some attention. Cool stuff.
