Scuba Comics
At the end of August, Disney announced it will buy Marvel Entertainment for about US$4 billion. Disney paid this incredible amount of money because Marvel's thousands of comic book characters -- which include including Iron Man, Spider-Man, X-Men, Captain America, Fantastic Four, etc. -- can be extremely lucrative business. But did you know there was a time when there were a good number of scuba-themed comics? Examples are "Sea Devils," "The FrogMen," "Frogman," "Undersea Commando," "The Aquanauts" and more. See a great compilation of scuba comics at Diving Into Scuba Comics. -- Posted Tuesday, September 22, 2009 by chb
