Creature of the Unknown – Murray

July 11, 2015 § Leave a comment

I’ve recently come in contact with another wonderful Australian comic fan. This time, a book dealer with some Swamp Thing editions that I’ve been looking for for a while now. Thanks to Swampy friend Zac, of Seeds and Leaves, I have a copy of Superman Presents Swamp Thing. Now I’ve obtained the Australian Murray edition, Creature of the Unknown as well as one of the three Swamp Monster editions. The other two, I’ve never seen for sale so I’m very excited to eventually track them down as well. Swamp Monster in the mail currently, I’ll post it when it arrives.
