I am reminded of this:

http://mk01.deviantart.com/art/Outrageously-Lovecraftian-117472834

But yeah, I'm gonna bring this up the next time someone says Aquaman is a wuss. Aquaman makes a yearly event out of KICKING CTHULHU'S BITCH ASS.

Aquaman really does make a habit of beating up Cthulhu a lot, doesn't he? It's not even a one-time thing, he does it all the time.

And I love those panels of the sharks and whales kicking ass, at that.

Really? I'm more reminded of this

Actually looking over it again, I'm REALLY reminded....

Marvel seems to be, what with their version of Captain Marvel, or whatever the heck the character's name is at the moment, travelling to a "sentient, cancerous universe" that is filled with EVIILLLL versions of all of their regular characters.

Like Marvel Zombies, 'cept eviller.

The whole "Realm of Kings" saga is dealing with a basically sentient, parasitic universe.

If you remove Nu!Spidey from the equation, I really like how Marvel is working these days. You have two (!) major events going on right now, each involving multiple books, however if you decide you don't care, there are still books going on outside of these normally. Bloody Siege bores you? Space opera RoK not your thing? Not a problem.

That's good marketing that is.

That would be Quasar, who has never used the name Captain Marvel, nor even met him AFAIK.

I must say, I was quite impressed
This issue by JMS is by far his best
The Demon was dark, brutal and rhyming
While his Aquaman was strong, not undermining
No moral, no attempt to over orate
Some formality, but still it was great
Just the tale of a man who worked with the sea
And witnessed the defense from a monstrosity

Anyone got scans of that story where Cthulhu is portrayed as a barbarian with a harem of hot chicks?

That was messed up.

Bah! A true connoisseur obtains their Octopus-man balls paintings from private Octopus-man balls auctions! For shame, to shop for Octopus-man balls paintings retail!

Well, I guess they did it with that guy in Star Trek VI, but that would certainly cut into Cthulhu's tentacle rape.

Masterful art. Shading is accurate, poses okay, background minimal but still evident, facial and bodily features smooth and expressive. This may be one of the best DC single issues of the year.

That is one of the most awesome Cthulhu (or near-Cthulhu) designs I've seen in a long while. The overall shape seems to be almost an anthro elephant, rather than simply just a base human shape with tentacles, and the explosion of tentacles that goes way beyond just the mouth area is fantastic. Suitably horrible and majestic all at once, well done!

I'm reasonably certain JMS wrote this issue to remind everyone that Aquaman is an incredibly cool dude. I am entirely okay with this.
interestingly enough, i was talking to a friend about this same subject over the weekend, need to point him at this one

That's suitably epic for what is clearly the team up of the century. I mean seriously, that thing must've written itself. And as happy as I am to see Aquaman to his natural bad ass status, the thing that makes me happy the most is Etrigan rhyming again. Taking that away from himw as just such a bad idea.
