Aquaman Art Gallery: Luciano Vecchio

This adorable portrait of five DC superwomen (for the record, Star Sapphire, Batwoman, Wonder Woman, Mera, and Power Girl) is by artist Luciano Vecchio.

We've said this many times before, but it is so great that Mera is now considered on the same level as the "A" level superheroines of the DCU. You didn't ever see her alongside WW, Batgirl, Supergirl, etc., in the 70s and 80s, either in the comics or merchandise, so it's awesome that is no longer the case.

Check out Mr. Vecchio's Pinterest page, there is a lot of great stuff there. If he ever wanted to do a solo Mera piece, we'd definitely post it here for all to see (hint, hint)!

This is awesome! A Mera mini-series would be nice...

Mera looks great, the whole piece is wonderful.

Two things I love about the current state of Aqua-affairs:

Mera being respected for the powerful hero she is and Mera and Aquaman being not only a couple but a functioning team. Spouses don't always have to be angst ridden and at odds! :)
