Paul Norris' Autograph

This is a copy of DC's More Fun Comics #73 Millennium Edition, signed by none other than Aquaman co-creator Paul Norris!

This comes from newest F.O.A.M. member Geoff Berman, and here's the story:

I live in Omaha Nebraska. On February 10, 2006, Paul Norris was being honored by his old college here in Fremont Nebraska (Midland Lutheran College). They had an exhibit called 'A tribute to Paul Norris'. I heard about it from my wife, and as luck would have it, I was able to get the day off from work. So I drove like a madman around Omaha, because I knew that the Millennium edition of More Fun Comics #73 had been issued in 2001 and I though I could find one so I could get Mr. Norris' autograph on his original Aquaman story. It took some driving, but I found a copy. I went to the event, it was amazing!!! BUT I forgot a pen, so I had to borrow a pen from someone else in line, and all anyone had was a sharpie, hence how thick the autograph is."

Geoff asked if this submission made him a member of F.O.A.M., to which the answer is a resounding yes! Great get Geoff, thanks, and welcome to the club!

This is too interesting for there to be no posts at all. I mean a comic book signed by one of the creators of Aquaman and no one is excited about that??

That is a comic book to be treasured forever.
