Justice League 111 Swampy Crossword

Justice League of America 111 (1974)

I’m very excited to share another Swamp Thing sighting I found while doing some Poison Ivy research. In this issue of the Justice League from 1974, Swampy appears in a crossword puzzle as well as an advertisement! I was reading the book because Ivy makes an appearance as a member of the Injustice Gang. In this issue, she goes to space and her alias is finally revealed to be, Pamela Isley! Pretty cool stuff; more on all that another time.

Last year I wrote about a word search that featured Swamp Thing. The puzzle can be found in the oversized Limited Collectors’ Edition: Christmas with the Super-Heroes DC Treasury Edition from 1975. When I stumbled upon his name in that word search I about fell out of my seat. Well, this sighting got just about the same reaction. I could not believe my eyes… “New Wein-Wrightson comic: SWAMP _____”.

Along with the cool JLA puzzle, Swampy makes an appearance in the back of the book in DC’s “line of super-stars” ad. The ST book being advertised is Swamp Thing 10 “The Man Who Would Not Die” (1974).

Also included in the back of the book is an Injustice League bio page. Brief write-ups along with an image are provided for each villainous member. Ivy’s alias is finally revealed to be Pamela Isley.
