DC Spotlight was a giveaway comic they released in 1986 featuring previews of their upcoming titles. Why they didn't just continue with the DC Sampler series, I don't know.
The book is extraordinarily hard to find, and this cover scan is the closest I've been able to come. Inside apparently is a preview of Watchmen, the very first appearance of the characters, making this book go for very high prices($50 and up) whenever it does surface on eBay.
No one I know has a copy, so while I assume there's a preview for the 1986 Aquaman mini inside(since he's there on the cover, wearing his rarely-seen-outside-the-mini camo suit!), I don't know that for a fact. But I'd love to find out some day.
The cover is by Jose Luis Garcia Lopez, which = awesome. The stars of the DC look so happy, including the normally stoic Martian Manhunter.
Today's (Also) The Day! According to the self-same 1976 DC Comics Calendar that we talked about on Tuesday, today is Mera's birthday!
This artwork is from the issue where Aquaman and Mera wed, drawn by Nick Cardy, and, I gotta say--Nick got away with making Mera way hotter than the motherly women you normally saw in comics at the time.
Happy Birthday Mera!
