PROOF: Swampy was at Stupidman’s Funeral

The Death of Stupidman (1993)

The hunt for any and all things Swamp Thing -no matter how crazy or great- is a never ending job. This oddball parody book serves as the perfect example. I found it while rooting through some Long boxes looking for Super Friends (1976) books.

All of the characters in the book seem to be “stupidheroes” but I can’t imagine they’d call Swampy, “Stupid Thing”! …of course they wouldn’t.

Unfortunately Stupid Thing doesn’t appear in the book. The story parodies Doomsday and Superman’s epic battle to the end.

It’s not a very big book but it contains some funny gems like the series of panels below.
