Aspen Splash: 2007 Swimsuit Spectacular

 AS2E   (Aspen, 2007)

™ and © Aspen MLT, Inc.

When hoping to catch fans’ attention with a new character, it’s often a good idea to make that character a beautiful, mermaid-like woman in tiny scraps of clothing. That was probably part of the thought behind Aspen, and it’s definitely part (if not all) of the appeal of this one-shot. Each page features various characters of the Aspen world—Aspen, Onyx, Miya, etc.—lounging about in provocative poses wearing tiny swimsuits (or less).

The art is nice, rendered by such talents as Michael Turner, Billy Tan, Randy Green, and many others. The issue features several different variant covers.
