Spot The Fish!

We've talked about Mike Allred's beautiful alt cover for Aquaman #31 before, but did you know that every single fish seen is a real creature of the sea? Above is a key for each fish, and you can learn who each of them are over on Southern Fried Science, the blog of real life biologist/geneticist/all-around-brainiac (and newest F.O.A.M.er) Andrew David Thaler, who has been doing a series of posts just about this cover. Check it out and go to bed tonight smarter than when you woke up!

And Andrew, welcome to F.O.A.M.!

This is great; it's this kind of attention to detail that Aquaman's unique milieu demands and that helps make him such a treat to read.

A lot of these fish aren't as gigiantical as they're depicted here, but everything gets bigger around Aquaman.
