Blogs I Like

There aren't a lot of comic characters I follow with any great passion. I can count most of them on one hand: Daredevil, Batman and the Teen Titans come immediately to mind. As does Aquaman.

I'm not sure where the anti-Aquaman mania started. The blame sometimes gets placed at the feet of the various Super-Friends cartoons, but those shows did nobody any favors. The characters were all interchangeable and flat at construction paper, and Aquaman didn't come across any worse than Batman or Wonder Woman.

Still, the idea that Aquaman is some loser who "talks to fish" is part of the common culture today, and that kind of skit makes me want to get all Brodie up in here. Just because You fuckers think just because a guy reads comics he can't start some shit?

Anyway, Aquaman has had some great fan pages over the years. The most important is Tegan's The Aquaman Website, which has been running for more than a decade now. Right after that is Rob's The Aquaman Shrine, a site that delivers daily doses of Atlantean goodness. Whether it's the adventures of the Aquaman Hoodie or regular features on the various Aquaman-related toys over the years, TAqS is a real treat for hardcore fans.
