On the latest FIRE & WATER PODCAST the guys discuss AQUAMAN #29 by Jeff Parker, Paul Pelletier, Sean Parsons, and Rain Beredo! Below are the cover, a few pages & panels worth noting!

image

Love this panel with Mera below. Jeff Parker is slowly introducing some fun through her dialogue.

image

Nice panel below showing Aquaman’s level of strength!

image

A little of his fight with the primary villain of the issue! Love the fish biting the bad guy upon command! Ha!

Batman & Aquaman #29/Aquaman #29/Fury of Firestorm Classic #9 - Episode 83

On the latest FIRE & WATER PODCAST the guys discuss BATMAN AND AQUAMAN #29 by Peter Tomasi, Pat Gleason, and Mick Gray. Below are the cover, a few pages & panels worth noting!

Nice to see Pat Gleason drawing Aquaman again!

image

Pat Gleason drew Aquaman during the Sub-Diego saga several years back.

image

Notice how Aquaman’s profile resembles a shark somewhat.  It’s just a hint, but enough to give him that extra-tough edge. 

image

Love, love, love this shot of the whale! Gorgeous art!

image

Nice save, Aquaman! And Batman’s dialogue is priceless!

Fury of Firestorm (Classic) #9/Batman & Aquaman #29/Aquaman #29 - Episode 83

On the latest FIRE & WATER PODCAST the guys discuss THE FURY OF FIRESTORM #9 (Feb. 1983) by Gerry Conway, guest penciller Jerome Moore, Rodin Rodriguez, and Gene D’Angelo! Below are the cover, a few pages & panels worth noting!

Love this cover! It tells an entire story all by itself! Flooding, the city in chaos, Firestorm feeling defeated.. perfect!

image

Wanted to include this next splash page (no pun intended) because it just looks off compared to the rest of the book.  Weird.

image

This next one is a fun page! Nice panel design too!

image

Next up is the fist-fight between Ronnie & Cliff Carmichael. Nicely done scene, but my favorite bit is how it’s subtlety getting more windy. A hint that Typhoon is coming!

image

Finally, below is Firestorm’s final attack at Typhoon.  Love the silent explosion below! No sound effects. Nice touch!
