So About Black Ariel...

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Sept. 17, 2022



I liked her. The trailer dropped and I didn't quite like the trailer, but I liked her.

Hear me out, now.

I think Halle Bailey can absolutely, 100% work as a mermaid. A little mermaid, if you like. There's just something in the way she's set up ...

JOHN BYRNE

When I first became seriously interested in comics, John Byrne was at the top of my favorite artist list. He drew many of the classic “new” X-Men books, and was the artist on that series when it first became massively popular. The stories Byrne drew (and co-plotted along ...
