Say Goodbye To Summer With Photos of Acrobatic Waterskiing Super-Heroes
By Chris Sims
I hate to say it, friends, but with August coming to a close, the end of summer is upon us. [Ed. Note: Noooooo!] But before we fully brace for autumn (or as we know it around here, Hurricane Season), Marc Tyler Nobleman has unearthed the perfect piece of summer: A series of photographs of Sea World’s “Salute to the Super-Heroes’ Waterskiing Show from 1977, where many of DC Comics’s most popular characters saved the day through the power of legitimately impressive waterskiing pyramids. And also America.
The photos are part of a very interesting oral history of the show Nobleman, the author of Boys of Steel is putting together for his retrospective on the more obscure pieces of super-hero pop culture ephemera from the ’70s and 80s. And for a super-hero comics reader, they’re the perfect way to bid a fond farewell to the summer.
