365 Reasons to Love Comics #301.

Scipio praises the Aquaman Cartoon DVD. Which I still need to get. If finances weren't so tight, I'd already have it. Rob also weighs in.

Speaking of things I need to get, the latest HeroClix, including King Shark are on my wishlist.

Nostalgia Manila has "Tex Time" Aquaman cards. I also want these, but I don't expect to be able to find them or afford them when I do.

I always wondered if the Quaker Oats Cereal Quisp had anything at all to do with the Aquaman friend of the same name.

HeroClix Artie Joe

Artie Joe and King Shark are both in the new HeroClix DC expansion set. For gamers, that means you've got a couple more water-based characters to play with. For non-gamers, these make wonderful little statues (and are much cheaper and easier to display than the stuff from DC Direct).

Expansion Booster Boxes

Check out the nice artwork on the expansion booster boxes, which will include Artie Joe. And here's the Artie figure itself:

Artie Joe

And you can have King Shark play a villain, if you'd like:

King Shark

And while you're waiting for the expansion to come out, you can head on over to Scipio's place and print out a nice island map to use as a battleground. Add in some of Scipio's FishClix and you'll be set.

Aquaman on the Bubble

Scipio reports that if Aquaman sales don't go up a bit, the book will be canceled as of issue #57. I'll have more information as it comes in, but Scipio is NOT reporting that the book has been canceled, just that it's on the bubble. There might still be hope. Bring the sales up and write letters, and maybe we can save the book and give Tad Williams more time to finish out the current plotline.

Justice League Heroclix Expansion to include Aquaman. Assuming that all the folks on the booster boxes are in the set, that is.

Sub Diego Heroclix map. Go Scipio!

Breathing Underwater. I seem to recall hearing about this development some time ago, it looks like it's nearly ready to roll out.

Sensor Sweep may claim to be a blog about Star Trek fandom, but there's an awful lot of Aquaman content there, including lots of great Aquaman wallpapers. Go check it out.
