Splash Page Saturday: Aquaman #4

sg
Every splash page from the 1985 Aquaman mini-series is worthy of singling out for Splash Page Saturday, but I went with this one (from issue #4) because I think the design genius of Craig Hamilton is so fully on display.

I love how he separates the book's credits while also working them into the larger overall picture, and Joe Orlando's use of monochromatic colors (except for Orm's face) helps lead the eye perfectly, down, up, and then in. A real beauty.

this was such a good series, very well done.

I enjoyed the way that Orm was depicted as much more of a supernatural sorceror in this mini-series, almost a bit otherworldly.
