Aspen Splash: 2006 Swimsuit Spectacular

 AS2S   (Aspen, 2006)

™ and © Aspen MLT, Inc.

A large part of the appeal of comic book titles like Fathom is the presence of beautiful women wearing little in the way of clothing. Producing a swimsuit spectacular like this one isn’t much of a stretch; just take away the word balloons of dialogue and there you go. Each page features pinups of series stars, including Aspen, Grace, Sonia, and Onyx, in outfits that sort of pass for swimsuits. They cover up the same areas that swimsuits do, at any rate.

For a title like this to work the artists have to be competent at their craft, and there’s little question that Michael Turner, Khari Evans, Billy Tan, and Peter Steigerwald, among others, can draw beautiful women. The one-shot naturally has two different cover variants.
