Man-Thing #2

The collectibles page has been organized!
The task was on my to-do list for a while and I’m very proud of the results. Eventually, the collectibles will be linked to site posts, similar to the list. Speaking of the list page, I’ve been working on cleaning it up as well. I think organizing the books by type (appearances, parody, references, etc.), rather than everything together in chronological order, will be easier to search and reference. Since Swampy ads and articles are not as popular as appearances, reorganizing by book type should thin out the heard and distill the information.
And now… a Man-Thing book??

I have not lost my marbles. Thanks to J.R.G. and his comic confusion, Swamp Thing made his way onto the Man-Thing letters page.

The Swamp Thing Publishorial

What does Val Armorr, Scalphunter and Richard Dragon have in common? Swampy publishorials!
The publishorial (or letter from the publisher) was a synopsis for who, what, when and where Swamp Thing is. It also served as a large, wordy ad for the upcoming DC Special Series – The Original Swamp thing Saga which collected reprints from ST series one (2, 14, 17 & 20).

The Saga of the Swamp Thing 5 (Series 2)

The Saga of the Swamp Thing 5 (1982)
The Screams of Hungry Flesh
It’s been a busy, Swampy filled month so far. New books and collectibles have sidetracked me a bit from keeping up with posting Swamp Thing’s chronology. The tiny Swamp Thing cameos in the Convergence books have been fun to keep up with and it’s nice to see Len Wein writing Swampy again.

I’m currently finalizing a Swamp Thing costume for O Con, a local comic book convention out of Omaha, Nebraska. The convention runs May 29-31, and this will be my first attempt at putting together a Swamp Thing outfit. I’ll post pictures at the end of the month. Now, back to series two…

In SOTST #4, we last saw Swamp Thing being loaded into an ambulance after taking on a crazed, murderous demon.

Out of the fire and into the frying pan. Swamp Thing is heading back into the hands of Sunderland Corp thanks to Liz Tremayne. Continue reading “The Saga of the Swamp Thing 5 (Series 2)”

Swampy and The Smith Signal podcast

Fellow comic and sci-fi lover, Andy of the UK based Smith Signal podcast asked if I would chat with him about fandom and how it relates to my love for Swamp Thing. I take stock in thoughtful conversation, especially with folks that share my passion so I was absolutely thrilled to take part in the interview. We had a great time and I am excited to share the end result with you.
