To Chuck Dixon, With Love

Because they consider me an expert in such matters, the Association for Salacious Panel Reinterpretation appealed to me to arbitrate an internal dispute over which is the gayer Aquaman panel...


J'onn dragging Arthur out clothes-shopping together?


OR

J'onn tying Arthur's tie during a heart-to-heart talk?


Thank goodness they called me! I was able to settle the matter easily by pointing out to both sides that the answer was clearly ...

Alright, you win this round sir.

Chris Laffoon said...

Yep, that's one gay aquaman panel...though personally..I think all panels containing aquaman are gay.

A pose worthy of Major Victory himself

That last panel is flawless. The way Aquaman is leaning. His Siegfried and Roy haircut. The guy in the foreground about to ram the jumbo dog into his gaping mouth. Beautiful.

I just discovered your blog the other day. I'm tearing through the archives. I linked to it from mine.

Where are these panels from?

David Lawson said...

J'onn is worried about Arthur's clothes, yet he does nothing about the Aquamullet?

He really is from Mars.

"Where are these panels from?"

Aquaman v2 #5 by Shaun McLaughlin and Ken Hooper.

Coincedentally, that series also had this panel:

Which I found hilarious.

That's the right series, but not the same issue.

Does make you miss the Sea Devils, doesn't it?

They appear in Aquaman: Sword of Atlantis, but you can see they don't have nearly as much fun as they did in that series.

Yes. J'onn is from Mars and, it would appear, Arthur is from Venus.

Why is the guy on the left so mad at his hot dog?

Crowded House said...

He's thinking: "How dare these flamboyantly dressed men bring such filth into my beloved city of San Francisco!"

Nick said...

Am I the only one who noticed the hotdog vendor is Edgar Allan Poe? Guess he's fallen on hard times, what with being dead 150 years and all.

Elliott said...

Do people honestly thing Aquaman is gay? He's wearing green and orange for fsxk sake! Haven't you guys ever seen Queer Eye, no gay man would dress like that.

Thanks for the comic ID, anon. I remember passing that series up, way back when.

when did Chuck Dixon write Aquaman?
