If you aren't reading The Aquaman Shrine daily, you are missing a lot. Rob tends to scoop me on just about every story because I'm blogging very infrequently lately.

More Aquaman reflections from The Comic Treadmill.

The webcomic Sheldon mentions Aquaman then clarifies a little.

Kurt Busiek has a website.

More on Mermaids.

I don't really understand why Spain would have a claim to this recovered gold. And speaking of underwater treasure, look at this rock heist that stole $1 million from an underwater farm.

In another story right out of an Aquaman tale, Mexico is looking for a missing island. The reason is logical, they want the territory the island would give them. But you have to wonder where the island went, if it ever existed in the first place.

Rob at the Aquaman Shrine continues to offer fantastic Aquaman coverage: Interview with Mike Grell. Interview with Dan Jurgens. Interview with Steve Epting.

If you find a neat Aquaman sighting, you can report it here on the Wiki, but be sure to send it to Rob's Aqua-mail so he can feature it.

Joe gives us a collection of Aqua-Icons.

I wish I could get this! I probably wouldn't use it either, but it looks great.

Can you identify the fish? It's pretty scary looking.

I feel sorry for these fish. Strange how people get pets, then mistreat them. Why get pets if you can't take care of them?

Pirates of Somalia seize a yacht, capturing 30 crew members and apparently holding them hostage. Of interest: "The International Maritime Bureau, which tracks piracy, said in its annual report earlier this year that global pirate attacks rose 10 percent in 2007, marking the first increase in three years."

Links and Notes

Dan DiDio is confused about Aquaman.

Here's a quick run-down: the original Aquaman, Arthur Orin Curry, is currently "dead" (in the same sense that DC heroes are often dead). Arthur Joseph Curry, who wants to be known as Joseph, is currently playing the part of Aquaman until he can find/restore the original Aquaman. IMHO, Joseph Curry isn't actually Aquaman, he's the Sword of Atlantis. So, whenever DC "brings back" Aquaman, they'll need to address both Joseph's quest and Orin's death. Any restoration that doesn't is crap.

Moving on, The Trouble With Aquaman.

If you want to get an MP3 of "Crank Dat Aquaman", there's at least one version available on SoundClick. Warning: NSFW lyrics. I've started searching the site for other Aquaman songs, but haven't found much worth listening to.

Ah, sunken cities, that's right up my alley! In some ways, this story reminds me of Adventure #223, in which a sunken city is found that isn't a city... just looks like it.

I've been busy off playing at the Emerald City Comicon, so I haven't been updating the links like I should. This has led to a lot of missing links. Here they are:

The Aquaman Shrine shows off Super Friends Paint By Numbers, 1974 Wonder Bread Card, Ohio Jaycees Pin, Official Adventures of Aquaman LP, Aquaman Thank You Card, and remembers Artie Jr's Birthday.

More Comic Treadmill Aquaman goodness.

The Continuity Blog loves Tad Williams' Aquaman.

Newsarama quotes the Legion of Doom's criticism of Tad Williams... I think they have never met the guy or talked with him, because he's a fanboy and surely does understand his audience, as he's PART OF IT. Still, an interesting critique, if flawed by assumptions on the part of the Legion.

Speaking of, Tad Williams' page now has a limited Aquaman section. Only a solicit there, so far, but might be a place to watch.

I See A Golden Age Aquaman Tale In This Story...

New Island and Floating Pumice. This last paragraph particularly stands out for me:
Pumice rafts drifted to Fiji in 1979 and 1984 from eruptions around Tonga, and some were reportedly 30 kilometers (19 miles) wide
Yeah, I could easily see a good Golden Age Aquaman tale based entirely on this.

Monster Rogue Waves would make a good tale for an Aquaman story. Can you imagine a scientist telling Aquaman that Rogue Waves don't exist? Heh.

Aquaman Couldn't Survive in It

Researchers report on Ocean "Dead Zone".


Thursday, May 04, 2006

David Blaine

Originally, I was going to avoid talking about David Blaine's Underwater Stunt, but seeing a report on it gave me a little fodder for thought. If he actually spends the full amount of time underwater, he might be able to give science some minor information on how the human body reacts to being submerged for an extended period of time.

In addition, he efforts to eat pretty much prove the scenes that Kurt Busiek wrote in the preview pages of Aquaman #42... Blaine is drinking liquid food in the same way King Shark and Arthur are drinking in the preview. Of course, Blaine isn't eating solid foods, as waste disposal is more of a problem when it involves solids.

I think they should add some goldfish to Blaine's bubble. That would make it far more interesting.
