The Sea King in his heyday…

It’s AQUAMAN WEEK! All week long, we’re celebrating the legacy of the Swift and Powerful Monarch of the Ocean. Click here for the complete index of features. You’ll be glad you did!

We can’t have an AQUAMAN WEEK without 13 COVERS, right? Right.

So let’s start off in the Silver Age — where we have to since Aquaman’s first-ever cover appearance was The Brave and the Bold #28, the debut of the Justice League of America.

It was also arguably his greatest period of popularity (until now).

  1. FALSE

    Information on Aquaman’s first comic book cover appearance was NOT Brave and the Bold #28 1960. I OWN the cover of his first appearance which I will sell the comic for thousands which appeared years earlier, 1956. It is an Australian comic book series. If you mean first in the US yes, but NOT world-wide. Sorry that is just misleading, misguided and FALSE!
