Comics Collector 7

Comics Collector 7 (Spring 1985)

The great, John Nordstrom down at Rainbow Comics amassed a giant stack of comics magazines from the 70s and 80s for me to look through. I thumbed through every issue searching for Swamp Thing ads, articles and comic strip appearances. Out of the 40+ magazines, I found only one instance of Swampy.

Finding the needle in a haystack is always an exciting moment. Stumbling upon oddball illustrations and unfamiliar info, buried within an article, makes Swamp Thing research feel like an Indiana Jones adventure.

The comic strip, buried deep within the book, features Swamp Thing and Man-Thing mucking up the pages of Comics Collector. A great, obscure find for sure!
