AquaFamily Throne Room by Craig Cermak

There's a lot of Aquaman fan art out there, of course, but artist Craig Cermak took a slightly different tack on his DeviantArt page, with this splashy color shot of Arthur and Mera at home in their tricked-out throne room (with Vulko in the back doing some research or something).

Much like how the BatCave and the Fortress of Solitude became playsets for various Batman and Superman action figures, I've always thought Aquaman's "Aqua-Cave" could have been the basis of a really kick ass accessory, whether it be from Mego, Kenner, or Mattel. Throw in a little rubber Topo, slap a price tag on it and call it a day. Maybe with the Brave and the Bold line...?

Thanks to our newest F.O.A.M.er, Allan Arevalo, for pointing this piece out to me. Thanks Allan, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Those books must be real soggy!

It's a cave, those books aren't soggy.

Great art!

You've apparently never stored books in a cave ;)

Ooh, I want an aqua-cave playset! I want one! I'll be waiting outside of Target until it opens tomorrow.

And aren't Atlantean books scratched into seaweed or sharkskin with coral styluses or something?

I can't even gather my thoughts here. This is just so cool. It's amazing.

I really hope we see something like this scene in Brightest Day at some point.

"And over here, Jackson, is where Garth's room was when he was Aqualad. It has bunk-beds, so you can take the top one."
