Decent Comics: "The Trail of the Ring" by Skeates and Aparo

Dig it, Groove-ophiles! Here's the second classic SAG (Steve Skeates/Jim Aparo/Dick Giordano) Aquaman story--"The Trail of the Ring" from Aquaman #41 (July 1968). The memories of these Aquaman stories are special to Ol' Groove, as they were instrumental in helping me transition from cartoons to comicbooks. No, I couldn't read 'em yet (I was about a month shy of being five), but Mom or Dad would read them to me and I really, really dug Jim Aparo's art. (Still do!) Does this take you back...?






















Oh, and don't ever think Sir Steve has lost his knack for writing underwater super-heroes! Keep your eyes peeled for this magnificent mag, headed your way in early 2018...
