Swamp Monster 1

Swamp Monster 1 (1981)

There are a few Swamp Thing related books on my short list of must haves. Most of those books are non-US editions and fanzines. I’ve been looking for this issue of Swamp Monster for a few years now and finally this sought after Australian edition made its way into my clutches!

Murray Publishers, out of Australia, released numerous comic editions in the 80’s. Many of them came in the form of albums featuring multiple stories and titles. I’m not quite sure if they continued into the 90’s or if they are still at it to this day.

This edition reprints Swamp Thing 1-4 of series 1. In case you forgot your series 1 staples they are: Dark Genesis, The Man Who Wanted Forever, The Patchwork Man, Monster on the Moors
