Namorita and Aqualad



One of the reasons I liked when Garth changed from Aqualad to Tempest was that he had long grown out of his original costume.  It looked fine in the old comics when he was portrayed as a young kid, but as the Titans aged, it started to make him look a bit silly.

Just give him long pants like Aquaman. The newer blue costume is good.

@:Andyhac: Namorita's costume is a bit cheeky!

@2nd Anonymous: it beats the way she was drawn that time the artists made resemble the She-Hulk's daughter by Triton! Can you say, "Ewwww?"

@Cary Comic You must mean the brief Kymaera phase of Namorita in the New Warriors. She was very blue and a bit finny.

I do love me some Bagley though. I know a lot of people seem to dislike the cartoonyness or percieved anime vibe from his large eyed faces, but I love his long clear lines and he sort of feels to me like if John Byrnes' art style was meshed with Pat Brodericks' style.

And I freaking LOVE john Byrne.

@Rilee: Yep! that's precisely what I meant. The only worse rendering in comic book history was Batman as drawn by Robbins and Springer. The Dark Knight looked more like Jonathan Crane during their stint!

These covers are brilliant! So glad I found out about these on Pintrest.
