EKS 261

EKS Almanah 261 (1981)
I’ve been chatting with a man in Croatia who owns a bookshop. He kindly went through piles of books to find some non-US Swamp Thing re-prints for me. He found five issues of EKS and one issue of Horror. All of the books are magazine sized and were released in the former Yugoslavia. I’m hoping to find time this weekend to post them, but in the meantime…

EKS #261 features Swamp Thing 3 (series 1) along with some other great comic stories. I’m not sure why they used issue 5 (series 1) on the cover but EKS does re-print, “The Last of the Ravenwind Witches” in EKS 392.

The front cover also features Shang-Chi! I couldn’t find a clear translation for Ruka Nahe but Swampy’s caption, Skrpljen Covek translates to “acquired man”. Assembled man may have been closer to The Patchwork Man.

The printing quality varies per page. The above Shang-Chi page is dull while the next page is a much richer black.

The Wrightson run in a larger format book looks so good.
