DC Presents #85

Stumbled upon an issue I have been looking for...oddly no other Swamp Thing comics with it. Unfortunately it has a couple of small flaws to keep it out of the 9.6/9.8 range so won't be able to add it to my Moore Swamp Thing CGC run.

Swamp Thing #9 Wrightson

Even though I have been focusing on collecting Moore's run, I did find a few Wein/Wrightson issues at a local Half-Price Books. No number 1 or 2 unfortunately, but I did pick up #9. What a great cover. I'm kind of kicking myself for not picking up the other issues now.

Winter Reading List

Wow I've really been slacking on my Swamp Thing journey. The good news is I'm still reading ol' Swampy, just started the Moore run this week and let me just say it has been fabulous. Not that I had any doubt in Moore to deliver.  I'll be back over the next couple of days to give a round up of the issues I've read. Meanwhile a pic of my stack of stuff to read over the next couple of months.

Swamp Thing #14 and #15

Been a while, just been crazy busy at work and Summer activities. When you live in Minnesota you have to take advantage of time outdoors in the Summer. The good news is, I have finished up the rest of the Pasko run and ready to start Moore, can't wait. But first I am going to finish up the rest of the reviews of Pasko's run.  Also picked up my own Swamp Thing! Now on to the review of issues #14 and #15. Both issues are written by Dan Mishkin and the Art by

Swamp Thing #7

Swamp Thing #7 Cover Impressions: Ahoy mates! We got a pirate cover...well a one eyed mutant pirate cosplay cover. As an added bonus, Liz is cosplaying Princess Leia as Jabba's slave or maybe one of Conan's babes...by Crom indeed. You really can't go wrong with either.     Swamp Thing #7 (November, 1982) Cover Price: $.60 Title: I Have Seen The Splintered Timbers Of A Hundred Shattered Hulls (This may be the longest title ever for a comic

Swamp Thing #`1

Okay here we go, Issue #1. Cover Impressions: Striking blue background. Swamp Thing (and a little girl) surrounded by a literal torch bearing mob...looks promising. And as a bonus it is a Collector's Issue, how could one go wrong buying this off the rack.   Swamp Thing #1 (May, 1982) Title: What Peace There May Be In Silence Credits: Writer-Martin Pasko Never read much of Pasko's work other than a few issues of his late 70s Superman books, which he has several to

Swamp Rising

Hey all, I've enjoyed many fellow boardie's journals and I thought I would share my experience reading Swamp Thing (1982) for the first time. I plan to start at #1 and read up to at least #87. Basically the Pasko, Moore and Veitch runs. I've heard nothing but praise (obviously) for Moore's Swamp Thing, but I figured I would start with Pasko, because it is the beginning of the series.  Oddly I have found very little reviews of the Pasko issues, so not sure how it will be.  I could have started wi
