THE COMICS' BEAT: Aquaman In Mark Arron James' 'Aquaman's Lament'

Mondays. They are worse than Dr Doom and after a heavy one, it can be a little hard to get the drum pumping again for the week ahead. As a former DJ, each Monday I dig into my collection, and chuck up a hit nodding to comics' best.

This week, one of the funniest Comic Beats ever; Aquaman's Lament. Not only is today a fishy themed day anyway, the whole song is sung by a lovesick Aquaman, who has had "seven gin and tonics" and sets out to convince Bat-squeeze Vicki Vale to be his girl. While Vicki looks a lot like black Canary, from free seafood to Robin, to telling Superman girls like it 'better when wet', this is one sea shanty you'll play more than thrice.

"Sitting in the Hall Of Justice, is there justice after all?
'Cause after all when you discuss us, I am the last name you recall"

 What do you think?  Full lyrics are here. To buy, visit and back here Monday for another Comic Beat!
