    Possibly Brave & Bold 126 or 142?

    Good luck to those looking for a long lost comic! It's a wholly satisfying feeling to finally reunite with one!

    What a fascinating read Iron Mego! Thanks for sharing that story and providing an enthralling journey through your search and discovery. It's a perfect illustration of how difficult it can be maintaining moments and images that captured our imaginations as kids and sorting ALL of that over time to our recollection accurately. It's another reason why I enjoy this particular hobby/forum, because its allowed me to continue a conversation that quite honestly I have tried to maintain since I was a kid. From the time I saw Batman '66 and Spider-man '67 during their first run, I was hooked. Comics became my next fix to continue that journey when those shows were not on. And finally Mego introduced the WGSH, which took my world of imagination and shot me into this incredible place where I mixed comic moments, movie moments, and cartoon moments.

    The Mego Museum offers a space to keep those moments alive and remain as vivid as they were when I first experienced them. When we quit talking about them and quit celebrating them, their importance carries less weight and so our memory relegates them to a corner where we may never find them again. I intend to keep mine in the spotlight for as long as I can. So thanks again for sharing your story. I completely connected with it.
    It's not how hard you hit, but how hard you can be hit and still move forward.

    It's pretty awesome actually. Probably why it stuck with me for so long.

    Thanks PNGywnn and comicmike, after seeing these books I'm pretty sure it was Brave and the Bold 142, I was hoping someone here would know
    and that's why I asked, always appreciated.

    It was after reading Iron Mego's story that made me think of that Batman/Aquaman comic, and at first thought I imaged it, glad to know my brain still works.

    Thanks Iron Mego for sharing that great story.

    Now you just gotta buy a copy and confirm it! Definitely post when/if you find it.
