Aquaman by Fred Hembeck

sg
Everyone who has read this blog for a while knows I love the word of Fred Hembeck. I grew up reading his stuff, and while I took superheroes and their stories very seriously, I also enjoyed Fred do his thing, taking jabs at these self-same characters, sometimes within the very same book!

Apparently Shrine Correspondent Russell Burbage was a fan too. After he saw Fred say that he didn't like Aquaman all that much, Russell wrote him a fan letter saying that he was a huge Aquaman fan! Fred responded with the above sketch, and the letter below:

That is an artifact of awesomeness.

Thanks for sharing Russell!

Nice work, Russell. And Fred Hembeck, too, of course.

Man, I love that illustration. This is one of my favorite pieces in my entire collection.
And I love Young Me for having the nerve to write Fred a fan letter asking for an illustration!!!
