Amazing Heroes Swimsuit Special ’91 (1991)
This book of bathing suit laden characters is chock-full o’ parody. Risqué compared to other books I’ve shared in the past, Amazing Heroes Swimsuit Special features some strange takes on Swamp Thing as well as some wonderful firsts.
Shawn McManus illustrated a happy Swamp Thing in tree form covering Abby in vines. They both look pretty content about the situation.
Batman never takes off the suit; not for Talia, not for a vacation in Tahiti
This beach frolicking dinosaur in a one piece is probably my favorite in the entire book. Brought to you by Brian Thomas of Dragon Island
The Flaming Carrot, Harvey Pekar and the Silver Surfer walk into a bar… No, no, no, they walk onto a beach. Damnit, I’m horrible at remembering jokes.
Lois and Clark striking a pose in the finest of swimwear fashion. Well, maybe not Lois, she isn’t wearing much of anything. by RG Taylor
Modok, the Leader and Gargoyle have never looked better! Modok’s giant beach hat is terrific.
Ok, I may have to change my mind that THIS is the best one in the book. Jean-Luc Picard and Riker are looking sporty and ready for Rockaway.
John Constantine and his beach crew!
No nudity allowed on beach. Censorship sucks!
The only time Hobbes and Swamp Thing will inhabit the same space. Swamp Thing and Boris have a history.
“Why Death finds the beach a little depressing at times.”
Betty Page kicking butt, slaying Punisher and the Hulk.
Ooooh Plastic Man! He’s a fresh one
I absolutely love this morbid Nancy and Sluggo scene!
Swamp Thing is very surprised at the sight of his wife who is enjoying a relaxing dip in the swamp. The illustration was a collaboration by Lou Manna and Sajine F.
I think I’d lose all credibility if I changed my mind regarding my favorite illustration, once again, so I won’t. BUT, I’m a huge Indiana Jones fan and Stuart Immonen along with Ron Boyd do an absolute bang-up job bringing Indiana to life on this ancient civilization turned Club Med.
“why’d it have to be beaches? I hate beaches… and snakes”
