DC Comics Presents 8 (1979)
The Sixty Deaths of Solomon Grundy
This issue is full of hand situations. Swamp Thing’s hands do all sorts of things.
Panel two: right hand may he broken. Swamp Thing finds himself wading through human waste below Metropolis.
Now his left hand looks lifeless or broken.
Origin story! I’ve said it before but I need to compile a list of every comic that features a Swamp Thing origin story. There seems to be quite a few.
Swamp Thing restraining Superman? It’s so Swampy can take Grundy and run tests on him to see how he grew from the swamp. Maybe the results could help Swampy return back to his human form.
Grundy and Swampy stroll off into the human sewage system sunset; hand in stump.
Another Swamp Thing arm situation. It’s growing back in a tyrannosaur kind of way.
Grundy and Swampy have a moment with the tyrannosaur arm
Then drunkin’ Grundy does a dance on some rats.
Superman is taking advice from his belt buckle. He says Batman is on the line but who’s to say?
Superman and Lois
Uh-oh, Grundy is about to get it.
Many Grundys being bad.
Two Swampy origin stories in one book! This is a record that I don’t believe has been broken.
I’d imagine Swampy is relieved to get out of all of that human waste. It’s unfortunate
I don’t recall the Willy Wonka like character in the center of the Slim Jim logo. I’m willing to bet it’s Mr. Slim Jim.
She always gets the bad guys.
