Amazing Heroes - 1986

This fan Aquaman drawing (by Greg Moustafis) ran in the letter column of the August 15, 1986 issue of Amazing Heroes, one of my favorite comic 'zines back in the day.

AH ran lots of fan art, especially in the letter columns, but I never thought I was good enough so I never sent any drawings in. Oddly enough, I did send a number of letters, many of whom got printed. A harbinger of things to come?

As fan art goes, this piece is pretty good; I think the influence of Craig Hamilton and his take on Aquaman is pretty apparent from the pose. Overall a nice piece; I remember at the time being happy someone else liked Aquaman!

This scan was sent by F.O.A.M.er King Megatrip, thanks KM!

Shag-I should have mentioned that!

Siskoid--Aquaman was always annoying his pals aboard the JLA satellite playing Thick As A Brick over and over.

LOL... rob! That was hi-larious! I love it! Aquaman and his Jethro Tull fixation...
