“Be-Kind-To-Whales Week” by Louis Cazeneuve

I’ve read golden age Aquaman multiple times throughout my life, and I always thought that Aquaman straight up murders this man with a harpoon. It wasn’t until just now that I realized that the harpoon merely knocks the gun out of his hand. lol

Without the guidance of a father figure, Blackie has taken to crime as evidenced by this carjacking

Well, I certainly didn’t have Aquaman driving a car on my bingo card.

Darn kids are more trouble than they’re worth, amirite???

That was officially the final issue of Aquaman (and all the other heroes) in the pages of More Fun Comics. Beginning with issue #108, More Fun Comics transitioned into being purely devoted to comedy comics.

Three months later, Aquaman and the other heroes who were in More Fun Comics would debut in Adventure Comics #103. Aquaman would remain in Adventure Comics for the next 15 years, until the debut of his first self titled comic at the beginning of 1962.

Oof, the comic that was scanned has seen better days

This is about the third time that they’ve used the general idea of a museum or circus of the sea.
