  Dorma kidnapped again?
I can imagine the l;awsuits generated by keeping something like Dragon Man at a public university.

  I still hope that one day Dragon Man becomes Reed Richard's pet.

  I really liked this issue. The Dragon Man seems to always be used for evil, yet it's protection of women is always on display.

  Seemed like Namor needed more water than usual this issue. Loved him smashing in a car's hood just to get some of that sweet, sweet water.

  A fun issue. The only thing that could have improved it would be a Peter Parker cameo at ESU.

  3 stars for the Dragon Man craving seafood!!!

Cover Me - Did they replace Dragon Man with Black Dragon Man? First Johnny Storm, and now this!!

Smoked Eel - Is that a fancy ashtray by Namor...underwater?? (p4,p1)

Shark Bait - I guess jailbait meant something else back then...

Emotional State - Silly girls, none of this would of happened if Diane and Dorma were rational...

Frat Life - I love the thoughts of the students at good ol' ESU!!

Severance Pay - Pro. Gilbert mentions Dean Asher at ESU. I guess Dean Corliss lost his job due to the events in Amazing Spider-Man #70!!

True Believer - I think the word balloon is coming from the wrong person, or the guy in the background did hear what the lady said. Also, is that Stan Lee with her??

Pucker Up - Dragon Man found time to put on lipstick... (p12,p4)

Hydrate - @specialque: I feel it is because Dragon Man is that powerful!

Cool It - It's a good thing that the car wasn't using antifreeze!

Lionel - The train looks more like a toy train set on p18,p5!!

'Nuff Said - "Gregson Gilbert is no savage!"-Gregson Gilbert

  More like Namor the Sub-Par-iner.

  I always like to see Dragon Man, for some reason.

  This loses a star for Dragon Man getting beaten up. Poor Dragon Man :(

  Dragon Man has powers Namor wouldn't have suspected? Like breathing fire like his namesake? (pg 15 panel 1) I guess all the fighting, lording over Atlantis, and being a jerk in general doesn't leave much time for reading mythology and about dragons.

@Locust75: Yep, some people still put actual water in car radiators back then instead of anti-freeze. And yeah, radiators rusted out pretty quick as a result. Having said all that? Yuck, Namor.

Also, ESU probably employs several deans. But if any of them approved Prof. Gilbert hiding Dragon Man on the campus, I'd hope they'd be out of jobs.

3 stars. I kinda liked it. But I still snicker every time I see the name Dr. Dorcas!

  They're reaction to Tiger Shark escaping was pretty much just
"Players gonna play"

  As a comic book villain, I can depend on the hero or the hero's lady doing the absolute stupidest thing possible in any given situation.

Dorma, take a freaking platoons with you.

  I really liked Marie Severin's artwork in this... I find it hard to believe it was really inked by Vince Colletta. The lines looked far too solid. But I'm not complaining!

It seems like every other issue Atlantis is kicking Namor out and then welcoming him back with open arms. Such a destructive, co-dependent relationship.

I love how that one student has hopes than Namor has come to join the anti-violence rally... and then Namor promptly breaks down the door and gets into a fight.

  "Sub-Par-iner" made me LOL.
