Aquaman made his initial appearance in DCs' More Fun Comics #73, cover dated November 1941 ( Green Arrow debuted in the same issue) during what is referred to as the Golden Age of Comics. Not a headliner at that time, Aquaman was a popular back-up feature and as the super-hero genre died out in the early 1950s, he was one of the handful of super-hero characters who survived and made the transition into the Silver Age of Comics.

Showcase Presents Aquaman, vol. 2 contains 25 of the Marine Marvel's adventures from Aquaman 7-23, World's Finest 130-133, 135, 137 and 139 and Brave and the Bold 51. Things are going ... er, ah... swimmingly .... for the King of the Seas during this run. Highlights, and a couple comic book firsts include:

Aquaman #7 (Feb 1963): The Sea Beasts from Atlantis - Strange, prehistoric creature are menacing the sea lanes, attacking ships for some unknown reason. The answers lie in Atlantis.

Aquaman #9 (May-June 1963): The Secret Mission of King Neptune- Aquaman and Aqualad battle the Sea God, King Neptune. But King Neptune was just a myth...wasn't he?

World's Finest #133 (May 1963): Aquaman's New Partner -- Aqua-Girl! - Atlantean Selena replaces Aqualad as Aquaman's partner while Aqualad recovers from a illness in a Atlantean hospital. The partnership is working so well that Aqualad worries the situation will become permament.

Aquaman #10 (July - August 1963): The War of the Water Sprites!- Quisp, the water sprite, has often come to aid of the Marine Marvels' during their adventures. Now, Aquaman and Aqualad return the favor to thwart an attempt by the evil Quirk and his followers to take over both the Water Sprite kingdom and the Earth.

Aquaman #11(Sep-Oct 1963): The Doom from Dimension Aqua!
