A 50th ANNIVERSARY sartorial salute!
Maybe it’s because I’m not a Marvel purist. Maybe it’s because I just have great taste in clothes. But I’ve always dug the Sub-Mariner’s short-lived, but far out 1970s outfit. You know, the one with the wings and plunging neckline.
John Romita designed the outfit, which debuted 50 years ago in August 1973’s Sub-Mariner #67. Namor fairly quickly returned to the Speedo look but you can’t blame the guy for tryin’ to be stylin’, right?
So why are we running this at the end of July instead of August 7, the actual debut date? Because it’s damn hot! And because we’re doing a whole 13 COVERS thang on Black Manta over here.
See? You get both of your aquatic Marvel and DC during this disgusting heatwave.
Dig, then, 13 COVERS: THE SUB-MARINER IN HIS GROOVY ’70s THREADS:
