Here we have an early AQUAMAN strip drawn by John Daly. To me, one of the unsung hallmarks of this series is that no matter who drew it for most of its prime years--Paul Norris, Ramona Fradon, Nick Cardy, Jim Aparo--the character always seemed to have a unique face. It wasn't just Bruce Wayne or Barry Allen in an orange shirt. Daly, an advertising artist in the '20's who ended up in comics, is certainly no exception. This is a fun story from ADVENTURE COMICS.

Originally best known for his sci-fi and superhero art for DC, one can actually find Jim Mooney art at many other companies in the forties and fifties. Here we have some amazingly smooth work from post-Code Atlas, recognizable as his and yet in a way much more detailed than his DC work of the same period.
