Aquaman's Supersea Aquarium

The Shrine posted this item many, many years ago, but at the time all I had was the box and the tank--the version I bought on eBay didn't come with the insert and little booklet, which sort of defeated the whole purpose of having the thing!

But thanks to newest F.O.A.M. member Karl Bolter, we now have these pics courtesy of another eBay auction. Quite an unusual piece, and not something you see often. Now whoever bought this baby can have their fish enjoy the classic Aquaman stock art pose by Murphy Anderson, up close and personal.

Thanks Karl, and welcome to F.O.A.M.!

Wow, this is cool. I remember seeing an ad for this sometime in my distant past...!

But Rob, this looks like it's Dick Giordano re-done Murphy Anderson?

^Yeah, I was thinking that too. Dick G redrew stock poses by other artists from time to time. The big DC valentine book from a few years after this is a prime example.

But man, that is a gorgeous piece.
