DC COMICS PRESENTS #38 (Oct 1981)
DC Comics
Please note that Aquaman is erroneously missing from the DC Comics Presents 1981 pin-up by George Perez, according to aquamanshrine.net.  Aquaman was a guest-star on issue #5. Rob speculates, "Somehow, Arthur was either forgotten by Perez when he was roughing out the sketch, or he was left off a list presumably sent to him by DC (by editor Julius Schwartz?). And yet no one forgot Man-Bat or Hoppy The Marvel Bunny. Geez."

Below is the original art, courtesy of thebristolboard.tumblr.com.


Update: Aquaman is probably hanging out with Red Tornado, who appeared on DCP#7.  Also note that the Starman costume that appears on the cover of DCP#36 is a blue costume.  The one seen in the pinup is a red costume.
