With the hype surrounding the Aquaman movie, it’s only right that Tuesdays comic be the amazing Golden Age 1941 More Fun Comics 73 which marked the origin and first appearance Aquaman, the first appearance of Speedy and the Green Arrow. All three characters were created by Paul Norris and Mort Weisinger. Aquaman initially had the powers to breathe underwater and control fish and other underwater life for up to a minute. While the King of Atlantis was a founding member of the Justice League Aquaman did not appear on the cover of an American comic until 1960, almost 20 years after his debut. This first comic appearance was arguably initially only notable to collectors as it was also Green Arrows first appearance. In 1960 Aquamans origin story and powers were re-worked and he gained popularity. Green Arrow, who also debut in More Fun Comics 73 was inspired by Robin Hood and a 1940’s movie called the Green Archer about a masked bowman who wears leotards and uses his bows to bring about justice. interestingly the Green Arrow resembles Batman, with both having a hero cave, sidekick, special car and ridiculous amounts of money. This was done as no mistake, with Batman being immensely popular with audiences, DC writers wanted to give readers more of what they loved without it becoming old and as such Green Arrow was created. Green arrow however didn’t get a solo comic until 1983! This iconic comic sold in 2016 for $104,562.50 (8.0 graded). . . . 📷: @heritageauctions . . . #goldenage#keyissue#comic#comics#comicbook#comicbooks#comicbooknerd#comicnerd#comicgeek#geek#nerd#igcomicfamily#igcomics#igcomiccommunity#igcomicbookfamily#igcomicbooks#comiccollection#comiccollector#cgc#comiccon#nerdy#aquaman#greenarrow#dccomics#firstappearance#speedy#followme#goldenagecomics#detectivecomics#igcomicbookcommunity

Uncle Scrooge 198. This issue isn't very pretty, but it is a really scarce issue, only sold in Whitman 3 packs, so when I found it for $1 I had to pick it up. Scrooge is probably my all-time favorite character after all.
