Mighty Mites #2 (series 2)

Mighty Mites #2 (1987)
Awkward, confusing, Mite anatomy and loads of parody… is what’s inside this book. I’m not wild about the Mighty Mites nor have I taken the time to get to know them but I do love the Swamp Thing parody within this issue.

Swampy is portrayed as Sump Thing, a bottom-dwelling trash monster.

Rather than critique or review the book, I’ll share some of my favorite Sump Thing panels. His poses and facial expressions are great.

Sump Thing enjoys a Monty Python moment…

and kind of resembles a bride to be, or perhaps a mop top

Monster Man comes to the rescue to kill Sump Thing.
A similar scene appears on the cover of Amazing Heroes #77 (1985)

Sump Thing doesn’t stand a chance and…

Mr Monster doesn’t make a whole lot of sense.

This book works pretty well for a short post. I’ve been re-reading ST related books when I have the time and lately I’ve been pretty busy. Besides investing a ton of time into Swamp Thing, I also have a knack for over-committing myself to big/fun art projects. For example, I finished these intersection murals last weekend:

Two street murals in two days. We wrapped up on Sunday in time to celebrate my birthday. My friend Julia drew me this awesome Swamp Thing birthday card.

To top things off, I was asked to take part in an interview regarding my Swamp Thing collection, after having recieved my Guinness certificate last week. I didn’t embarrass myself or any loved ones so I’ll count it as a win.
