Aquaman and Topo by HeathenComics

This striking illustration is up on DeviantArt under the name HeathenComics. The actual artist's name is right there on the bottom left, but I can't quite make it out.

I haven't read much of the [Fill In Name of Marvel Character]: Noir series of books, mostly because I think the word "noir" has just become a brand, not an actual aesthetic. And while Aquaman is one of the superheroes least-suited to a noir approach, this piece makes me think it maybe it could work!

This was pointed out to the Shrine by our newest F.O.A.M.er, Robert Watkins. Thanks Robert, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!
