Oh ... there's the sword...


I like the logo for the new Aquaman series. It's a strong homage to the original Aquaman logo, adding a smidgen of weight to my pet theory that the Aquaman in the new series in the Golden Age one, somehow back in the DCU after the New Crisis.

But, uhm...

given that the middle "A" mimics the symbol on Aquaman's belt and the whole subtitle and, well...

doesn't it seem rather... naughty?

ugh, I say, sir... ugh. Stupid underwater Conan; I want regular Conan dammit!

I don't see Paul's objection. I mean, isn't A:POA a perfect follow up to the Peter David run, Aquaman: Asshole of Atlantis?

"Aquaman: Penis of Atlantis" would be a top seller, no doubt.

"If Balls Be My Destiny!"
"This Man, This Taint!"
"Cry: Nutsack!"

That's not REALLY the new logo, is it?

Gawd.
