Swamp Thing sighting! Guru and purveyor of all thing comics related, John Nordstrom brought this book to my attention and had a copy to spare. I love this take on Swampy by Frank Bella and Mel Smith. I’d like to think he’s using that massive branch as a back scratcher but I can’t be sure. It’s always fun to stumble upon illustrations of Swamp Thing, read the whole book and find even more Swamp Thing treasures/information.

Coming Distractions! provides an interesting preview of Swamp Thing 71

The Amazing Readers forum contains some great letters from fans. This article discusses DC cities and their locations. Ironically enough, a friend and I were discussing this very topic yesterday morning.

Michael Eury’s Video Views column spotlights Berni Wrightson and his work on Frankenstein. Of course, Swampy gets brought up.

I was quite surprised to see this great drawing of Brother Power The Geek. Fans familiar with Chester Willams (Swamp Thing series 2) should remember the storyline pertaining to Brother Power. I’ll write more about this as I continue to re-read the chronology.
