Aquaman Arrives



Rob!, the curator of the wonderful Aquaman Shrine, (and other outstanding blogs), sent me a gift for my newly born son… an Aquaman doll. Very cool of him indeed to do such a thing, apparently he has a tradition of sending out an Aquaman to all the families he knows that have been blessed with a new baby.

Thanks so much Rob! It’s very much appreciated. I’ll make sure Swinebread Jr. has this gift as part of his collection when he’s old enough. As you can see from the picture Aquaman made it out to Oregon just fine, but I had Dr. Gumby check him out just to be on the safe side. ☺ The SO really likes the doll too. She’s not very familiar with American superheroes but she thinks Aquaman is cute. Heh, heh all the girls say that don’t they.

Make sure you stop by Rob!’s blogs for really fantastic comic book memories and info. His stuff is so good in fact, that he’ll be published in Back issue Magazine soon.

Hat’s Off Rob! Much gratitude from Atomic Romance.

Aquaman forever!

glad he arrived safely. i think, after instituting the Aquaman Baby Indoctrination Program, i've bought about two dozens of these suckers on ebay.

Aquaman is so much cooler than the Wonder Twins who always seemed to be tagging along.

Let's put Aquaman in the bathtub and see how long he can hold his breath!

Swinebread said...

Arkonbey – That’s great! I never knew Aquaman was into Vicki Vale! How long has this tune been around?

Snab – yes it is!

Rob! – Obviously you have a passion for Aquaman, and its much-appreciated thanks again

Dean – he is cooler, also he’s from the comics while the wonder twins were made up for the TV show.

Stephen – There might be easier ways but go for it!

Bad Girl – and I don’t like spam!

Dr. Zaius – Well we can do that in or out of the water as he can breathe in both!

Aquaman can do more than speak to fishes. He can commune with ladies.
