Splash Pages: Aquaman #35

For today we have another installment of Splash Pages, this time featuring the work of the legendary Nick Cardy!

Geez, this Cardy kid is pretty good!

For whatever reason, this story seemed to be very inspiring for Aqua-Artists. When it was reprinted in DC Super-Stars #7, Jim Aparo came up with his own killer opener:
