Limited Collectors’ Edition presents #C-52 (1977)
The Best of DC Volume 1
If you’re a frequent visitor to this site, you know that I enjoy obscure ads and articles relating to Swamp Thing. Any little Swampy sighting excites me. This large edition features a Swamp Thing sighting and I was very excited to pick it up today along with the previously posted Swampy word search.
The wrap-around cover features some terrific Neal Adams artwork.
The book collects a number of great (best of, as the title indicates) DC stories. The art work is spectacular, of course. Oh, and here is that little Swamp Thing sighting. I wish they had published a Volume 2, featuring the pictured Swamp Thing #9 The Stalker From Beyond (1974).
Below is a list of the stories that are reprinted.
Batman #237 Night of the Reaper (1971)
House of Mystery #201 The Demon Within (1951)
The Flash #148 The Doorway to the Unknown (1964)
Our Army At War #241 Dirty Job (1972)
Tomahawk #136 (1971)
Night…a star-studded sky tints the deep arroyos and broad mesas below…
Superman #156 (1962)
The Last Days of Superman!
Part 1: Superman’s Death Sentence!
Part 2: The Super-Comrades of All-Time!
Part 3: Superman’s Last Day of Life!
The inside back cover features the Swamp Thing comic pictured at the beginning of this post. I know it’s a small and seemingly insignificant Swampy sighting but the book is well worth it, as you can see from its content and collected stories.
