I have seen a lot of great art from a lot of great artists over the years, but I'm pretty sure that Michael Lombardi was the first to add a caption encouraging people to be more like Aquaman. I mean, if anything, I tend to favor art that advises people to be as unlike Aquaman as humanly possible. I don't even own an orange shirt. That is how dedicated I am to this.

And yet, Lombardi's beautifully exaggerated figures have an appeal that's hard to deny, even when he's drawing the King of Atlantis -- and it helps that he's doing the awesome Brave and the Bold version, too. Check it out, along with other pieces featuring some of our favorite superheroes, below!
