Fresh Eye on Old Books #16 by Dan!

Well there’s lots of good stuff here.  Let’s do this! Showcase #32 from 1961 You know, it’s good to go when the editor thinks it’s necessary to explain how Aquaman and Aqualad talk to each other under water.  Oh the 1960s!… This issue is all about Aquaman fighting some giant creature created by a WIZARD From the Past (dun dun dunnnn…) That huge creature begins literally beating up all kinds of different animals throughout the sea (no seriously, he hits a whale shark with a funnel.  The creature is trying to steal gold…yes, that’s literally all the plan is.  It … Continue reading
