Monster of the Day #1098

First of all, imitating Aquaman is not the way to go. Second, two titles seems kind of needy. And “Challenge of the Fish Champions”?

    “Lets quite all this seahorsing around.”
    Hey, it’s a Russ heath image. My fav. comic artist.

  • Beckoning Chasm

    So I guess the Sea Devils are itty-bitty, tiny people? Unless those are unusual sea-horses. Ah, I bet they’re space sea-horses.

  • bgbear_rnh

    They are so going to be pull off those sea horsies.

  • CaptNemo

    TONIGHT…Poseidon will be played by greenskeeper Willie.

  • Gamera977

    Probably one of those Pentagon bioweapons programs to breed giant sea horses for Navy SEALS to ride into battle…

  • bgbear_rnh

    They do not like to talk about the sea-monkey program.

  • Imitating Aquaman can only lead to ruin. Sue, riding those giant sea horses looks fun, but notice that they don’t have saddles. Yeouch!

    Then, if the pattern holds true to form you’ll have a crappy Hanna Barbera cartoon come out making you look the fool. It’ll even make Green Arrow (lame Batman ripoff with stupid goatee) looks good. That ain’t right. It simply ain’t right.

    Before you know it, you’re who life is in ruins. You’re infant child dead, your spouse accusing you of negligence, and piranhas come and eat your good hand. Sure, you can replace it with a hook or a water lance or something, but people keep on coming up to you and asking why you didn’t just telepathically control the piranhas away, and, frankly, that gets old.

    I find myself intrigued; it looks like the two giants are Poseiden and Hercules. So not only am I wondering what caused that spat, but also why Poseiden should look so terrified, considering one of the three most powerful Olympians (arguably second only to Zeus) shound be able to handle a half-breed Johnny-come-lately with limited trouble. I mean, all respect to Hercules, who’s provided a lot of entertaining movies and television over the years, but it’s the god of storm and sea. Being really good at punching can only do so much.

  • The Rev.

    Forgot another good part: do the Sea Devils really think their plan their will be able to contain a god? I really hope the next panel is Hercules (or whoever) snapping the ropes with his pinky and being amazed at their unmitigated gall. And then clubbing them for their temerity.

  • Joliet Jake Blues

    Miniature giant sea horses, perhaps?

  • Eric Hinkle

    He probably would too, given that Hercules is a villain at DC. He fought the Amazons, and since the DC Amazons are all good he’s got to be evil. Because good guys never fight each other in the superhero comics. (Hey, don’t ask me, it was the reasoning I got years ago on this issue.)

  • Luke Blanchard

    I have these stories! Hercules wants to be a full god, and is trying to claim Neptune’s position of god of the sea. Google “The fifth branch” “sea devils 14” for a synopsis.

  • Eric Hinkle

    That doesn’t sound like a very clever plan on old Herc’s part.
