Review by: PozrDu
story, art & cover IAN CHURCHILL

Size: 32 pages
Price: 3.99

Remember when superhero comics were fun?  There was always a handsome, confident
hero who always had time for his fans with a big white smile.  Was he cheesy?  Sure, but he knows that. He would then
wink to the parents and go right back to signing the autographs.


Ian Churchill not only remembers, he embraces it.  Using a 70’s Superfriends’ Aquaman
analog, Churchill brings us Steve Ocean, a celebrity marine biologist who would
be right at home on tonight’s prime time Animal Planet.


Is that enough? 
Nope.  We’ll give him a
beautifully rendered, super secret, James Bondian base.


Now how much would you pay?


How about we throw in a buxom good girl or two for Dad and
add a section dedicated to highlighting actual marine biologists and their studies in the field.


What do we have? 
It’s Marineman.  It’s
entertaining.  It’s
educational.  It’s not a comic book. 
It’s a complete, full-service comic magazine.  Is it for really little, Tiny Titans reading kids?  Not really.  (Too buxom for toddlers.)  Children, however, over seven years old and the adults who
wish they were still that age (me included) could love this.

Story: 4 - Very Good
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. Thanks for the review, I’m happy to learn that it’s not a book only for young readers
