Swamp Thing 9 (1974)
The Stalker From Beyond
Swampy has been doing a lot of traveling and he finally makes it back home in issue 9. As you can see he’s still getting used to transportation.
Oozing, slime-caked trail sounds awful. I’m glad this character flaw didn’t carry over in other issues.
Meanwhile, Cable & Abigail enjoy the splendors of subpar gulfcoast beaches.
…why would this well dressed man choose to walk through the surf?
Find yourself some dry coastline.
Matt, calm down. Let Smithers wring his pants out on your lap.
Back at the swamp barn turned super secret lab, Swampy figures things out really quickly.
An alien in the lab!? “It’s huge!”
“Oh wait, he’s only a few inches taller than me”
During his struggle with the alien stranger Swamp Thing finally harnesses his powers of regeneration!
… and friendship
Everyone wants the alien while the alien just wants to go home.
The book has a very strange and abrupt ending. I was really rooting for Swampy’s new friend.
That red baron is one hell of a fokker.
Mickey has a smile in his trousers, Goofy is having chest pains.
I wonder if bullying would decrease if these ads still ran in comics today.
Joe Weider: transparent, white, destructive and cheap!
well then… I’ll keep my money.
