How Aquaman Met Topo



On today's episode of
"The Loneliness of Aquaman Week":


Thanks to his aquatic telepathy,
Aquaman knows what it feels like for a fish.

Oh, I don't blame poor lonely Aquaman
or even the octoprostitutes themselves.

I blame the bearded maritime pimps
who profit from their desperation.


"Oh, Topo,
I can take you away from all this.
You're leaving with me."

Nice legs on those octiprostitutes. I wonder how many clams that set Arthur back?

I don't know, but he probably got crabs from the experience.

I just leafed through a Peter David Aquaman issue yesterday. He fought a villain named Rhombus.

Rhombus. Come on people. How can you defend this guy?

k26dp said...

He's just another lonely four-sided shape making his way through the ocean?

Scipio said...

Peter David wanted a villain who wouldn't make Aquaman seem


square.

totaltoyz said...

Scipio, wasn't there any way a round that pun?

Scipio said...

Mmm, not from my angle, Dale.

See; I could write Aquaman as well as Peter David...

totaltoyz said...

I cone not believe you said that.

Mike Loughlin said...

I'm in no shape for bad punning.

Spheriously, people...

totaltoyz said...

You might say the curse of bad puns has us all in hex-agony....

We're all peas in the same octopod.

Peter David is a slightly better than average comic book writer who thinks it means something to be slightly better than average in todays's comic book industry.

"But I Digress" was seriously annoying much of the time. Who gives a flying fuck what Peter David thinks of "Lawrence of Arabia"?

I never read his version of Aquaman. I just assumed it sucked like his Supergirl did.

I did, in the style of,

"Well, I really don't like this character at all, so I'm going to turn them into a completely DIFFERENT character with the same name, and pretend that it's character development instead of character assassination."
