I missed out on the monthly issues of MM. I didn't have it on pull list & my LCS sold out so I waited for the trade. I received the trade as an Easter gift (*). Great stuff!
Ian's passion for the ocean shines thru on every page. His writing was very good. I like that it was a fun all ages book. I also enjoyed his "Ed McGuiness" style art. It fit this character. I have been a fan of Ian's art with his work at DC, Marvel & Awesome.
Hopefully sales were good enough for a second volume. Marine Man has joined Aquaman & Namor as awesome water based heroes!
(*) - We only give our kids a small amount of candy in their Easter basket so we fill the basket with books, DVD's, etc. I bought my wife baseball tickets (she loves hockey & baseball!) for an upcoming game & I received Marine Man & Shinedown's new CD.
