The Lost Boys 1 (2016)
The new Lost Boys book wasn’t on my pull list last week but I was sure to pick it up this evening after learning that Swampy makes an appearance. It’s not exactly an appearance but he shows up in a few panels.
Like the Lost Boys film, this book is set in 1987. The same year, Swamp Thing 57 Mysteries in Space was released. Any comic shop worth its salt would have it in stock.
Numerous comics, released around the same time, populate the shelves. Rather than redrawing the covers, it appears the originals were copied and pasted into the backgrounds.

In Back Issue #92, Pasko (I think) mentions that a Swamp Thing comic shows up in the background in the comic store scene of the Lost Boys movie. I haven’t checked this out yet. The comic that is shown is the punk vampires issue from Pasko’s run, which Pasko takes as a sign that the comic was an influence on the film’s writers. Did you know about this?
