Interview with Paul Norris of Aquaman fame

The San Diego Union Tribune interviews Paul Norris, the artist who co-created Aquaman with Mort Weisinger back in the Golden Age, who's now 92 years old:
OCEANSIDE – Paul Norris is still getting fan mail for the comic book character he created more than 65 years ago.

The 92-year-old Oceanside resident created “Aquaman” in 1941 with DC Comics editor Mort Weisinger, known for his work on Superman.

It was the golden age of comics when Norris was asked to create a super human who lived in the sea.

“I drew up the character, and off he went,” Norris said.

“Aquaman” appeared around the world and developed a following throughout Europe that still exists today.
Wow, if that's so, then how can anyone ever say the Sea King isn't a great character? He certainly is, and the Silver Age adventures are certainly said to be well regarded.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
