    Default Namor75: 365 Days With Namor the Sub-Mariner

    Continuing the celebration of Namor's 75th anniversary year!


    Inspired by Existentializzy, a Namor fan with lovely wit and observations, who celebrated Namor's 70th anniversary with an image a day on her tumblr, I'll be doing the same, but with covers. Covers from NINE decades of Namor's storied history -- so 365 covers!



    Sunday is the SAVAGE '70s

    Monday is the MARVELOUS '80s

    Tuesday is the TANTALIZING 21st CENTURY

    Wednesday is the WILD '90s

    Thursday is the TERRIFIC '30s & '40s

    Friday is the FABULOUS '50s & FANTASTIC TEAMS

    Saturday is the SWINGING '60s


    Plus, I'll be sharing Existenializzy's images -- so, 365 panels!

    If you've got a favorite panel with Namor or a fun caption, feel free to share it here.

    Default THE TERRIFIC '30s & '40s

    Thursday is THE TERRIFIC '30s & '40s
    Day 1



    Marvel Mystery Comics #4
    by Alex Schomberg
    Cover Date: February 1940


    This was the first Timely cover to feature Namor. Comics were usually dated two months before they hit the news stand, so this issue probably debuted in December 1939. I believe it's the first Timely cover to feature their characters fighting Nazis, long before the US entered WWII.

    Gotta love a man who is willing to share his feelings … at the appropriate time.

    365 Days with Namor, Day 174


    "Knots to you!"
    Back in the day when young Prince Namor was a terrible punster.

    "But, mother"
    ... I can't take anything you say seriously while you are wearing that hideous outfit.

    Things you'll never see Namor say to his mother.

    Tuesday is THE TANTALIZING 21st CENTURY
    Day 6



    Fantastic Four #32
    by Salavador Larroca
    Cover Date: August 2000

    Namor was in a few other titles in 2000s, but this is the first of the new century where he's featured on the cover. This issue had Susan Storm, obviously, but it also saw the return of one my favorite of Namor's ladies, Dorma -- though an alternate version of the lady.

    Marvel Age #84
    by John Byrne
    Cover Date: January 1990

    Namor at his urbane. I didn't realize the first comic with Namor on the cover for this decade would be the complete opposite of 'wild.'

    LOL is he wearing green speedos on his bottom half?
    What we used to call life has very little worth these days. Welcome to the very edge.

    Wednesday is THE WILD '90s
    Day 14



    Namor the Sub-Mariner #1
    by John Byrne
    Cover Date: April 1990

    Given today's news, I think this is an entirely appropriate cover. Namor 'died' in Atlantis Attacks, only to get a brand new book by a major talent a few months later. Here's hoping history repeats itself.

    Oh, preach it, brother! Perhaps that has been Robinson's plan all along.

    Namor the Sub-Mariner #2
    by John Byrne
    Cover Date: May 1990

    Finally we get a cover that fits Wednesday's description better. Though, TBH, didn't find much of John Bryne's run to be that 'wild.' His was the most sedate Namor ever -- except maybe Bill Everett's Atlas run.

    Namor, once again, showing his aversion to doors.
