LIID 113: Aquaman/Creature from the Black Lagoon! by johntrumbull LIID 113: Aquaman/Creature from the Black Lagoon! by johntrumbull
The Line It Is Drawn #113 for 10/31/12: Since it's Monster Mash-Up week at the Line in honor of Halloween, I chose to do Aquaman vs. The Creature From The Black Lagoon!

Man, how great would it be to have the Creature as a regular foe for old Arthur Curry? DC should revive the Kordax from THE ATLANTIS CHRONICLES & Peter David's run on AQUAMAN & make him as much like the Creature as they can legally get away with.

This piece was finished on Wednesday, October 31, 2012, despite my briefly losing power in my apartment on Monday the 29th due to Hurricane Sandy. :)

Aquaman would win this one since he's stronger and faster than the Creature. Plus he can control sea animals which includes the Creature.

I'd hope he'd win -- He IS the good guy! :) But I think the Creature could give him a good fight.

Too much win in one photo! I'm surprised that there wasn't an Aquaman foe that resembled the Gillman (of course I could be wrong about this), but anyway- a great crossover indeed!

Yeah, I think the closest they've ever come is the Kordax character from The Atlantis Chronicles (DC, PLEASE reprint that series in a trade collection!)

If you decide to do a print of this please let me know. I'm a bit of a creature/Arthur fan girl.

I'll probably be printing up some for the next convention I do, either in Trumbull, CT in August or at the New York Comic Con in the fall. If you make it out to one of those, I'll be glad to sell you one. Or just send me your info in a private message & maybe we can work something out.

*squints* Is that Mera, or just a random lovely statuesque redheaded damsel that the Creature is kidnapping?

Hey, I loved the suggestion! When the theme was announced, I thought, "Man, Aquaman and the Creature from the Black Lagoon would be fun to do." So when I saw that suggestion on the list last Friday, it was a no-brainer. Thanks for suggesting & I hope you keep it up! :)

That's a good point, Axel, but I'm not sure if that gives him kidnapping rights...

Totally agree. Creetch would be right at home battling Atlantis' finest.

Great looking piece John! Glad you were able to get one in despite the somewhat dubious electrical grid this week!

Yeah, I was much luckier than most in New Jersey. I'm in a second floor apartment, so I didn't have to worry about flooding. I only had three brief power outages, two that were only 5-10 minutes, and a third one lasting about 2 1/2 hours. I've had uninterrupted power since late Monday night. I'm glad I was able to get a piece done in time!
