Green Lantern Swamp Thing

Amazing Heroes 104 (1986)
Amazing Heroes and their fan submitted art never disappoints in delivering fun parody appearances. Over the years I’ve found a number of great Swampy references and parodies within the pages of Amazing Heroes. This one may be one of my favorites…
On the very last page of the book, Greg Wilcox’s Swamp Thing puts the Green in Green Lantern.

the News section also has a bit about Stephen Bissette’s plans for Swamp Thing 59.

Another key item that made me fall in love with this issue is the oversized reproduction of this Joe Orlando panel from Weird Fantasy 18 (1953). The panel appears in an article relating to great sci-if stories. Al Feldstein & Joe Orlando crafted this tale to comment on the state of bigotry and how now planet is free when shackled by oppression. It’s actually more of a subtle progression than I describe here but it’s an amazing story that I highly recommend.
