Unpublished Aquaman Page by Jerome K Moore - 1986

This awesome, astounding unpublished page from the second Aquaman mini-series is by Jerome K Moore, who was hired to replace Craig Hamilton as the artist.

As Mr. Moore comments on his DeviantArt page, he was asked by DC to try and adapt his style to be similar to Craig's (a herculean--and dubious--task to ask of any artist, sheesh) and due to various complications the whole series was finally scrapped. As if we didn't know already, we can see from this piece what a tragedy that decision was.

A while back, I asked Mr. Moore for permission to post this piece on the Shrine, and he granted it. I also asked him to do an interview with the Shrine, which he (politely) turned down, so sadly this will probably be the only input from Mr. Moore we're going to get in regards to his brief-but-important association with Aquaman.

Jerome K. Moore is one of the most underrated artist in comics. When he was drawing the Green Arrow backup in Detective, his art usually outshined the work in the main Batman story!
