Aquaman #52 - Neal Adams art

Aquaman v1 #52 dc 1970s bronze age comic book cover art by Nick Cardy
Aquaman v1 #52, 1970 - With this issue, the short Deadman tale cleverly converges with the main Aquaman feature. Neal Adams opens with an unusual panel, purposely distorted to suggest inter-dimensional travel. Though slightly less impressive than his previous issue, the artist generally meets expectations. The issue's high point? Deadman's conversation with a cat-like creature on the final page. Nick Cardy's somber cover is among his finest of the period. Other artists in this issue include Jim Aparo. This is number 3 of 3 Aquaman issues with Adams art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Adams or Aquaman issues. See also this blog's Adams checklist or Top 10 Adams comics.
