Aquaman Stock Art by Tom Grummett, Pt. 2

A few months ago the Shrine posted two pieces of mid-90s stock art by the underrated Tom Grummett, featuring Aquaman as he looked at the time, which of course necessitated the creation of some new stock pieces that could be used for merchandise. Here are two more from that set, featuring my favorite of the bunch--the one up top, with the Sea King cutting through the water, directly at the camera!

I don't recall seeing these used all that much (I don't think the JLGL stuff was ever retired, even when the characters were looking very different), but a couple of them did show up in a DC Comics Scrapbook album, at the very least. I would have loved to see Grummett try his hand (no pun intended) at Classic Aquaman; his style works so well for straightforward superhero adventure!
