Comics Buyer’s Guide #687 January 16, 1987
I’ve mentioned before that I am slowly but surely getting through a mountain of Comics Buyer’s Guides and here’s another one. There are numerous reasons why I enjoy reading CBGs. News, article, cool ads, comic strips, reviews; it’s all here. This issue contains a fun parody strip as well as an ad featuring Swamp Thing.
Numerous CBGs published In 1987 feature this Swamp Thing ad. The ad works as an incentive for consumers as well as advertisers. It’s a pretty neat idea, I wonder how it worked out for participants. Swamp Thing 21 is a classic issue and certainly worth the subscription nowadays.
Even The Boss gets a parody
Blunder Cats, Hooooo!

Boy, this would be ideal. Wouldn’t it?
This installment of Oh No, Not Another Team-Up features Swamp Thing getting filleted.
His assailant is Axel Pressbutton. Thank you Swamp Mark for letting me know who he was! I had no idea.
This full page ad sums up my relaxing and delicious Christmas experience
