The Brave and the Bold 188

The Brave and the Bold 188 (1982)

As my Poison Ivy research continues, I picked up this Thorn appearance and to my surprise I stumbled upon Swamp Thing! I’ve mentioned it before but I’m collecting and documenting Poison Ivy’s Chronology in order to write a story about an early Swamp Thing and Ivy encounter. I’ve got a ton of notes and some really fun ideas.

Toward the back of the book comes, “an annual tradition!”

I’ve not seen this ad before and am extremely excited to share it with you.  Saga of the Swamp Thing 2 appears in the ad announcing the return of DC Annual. Although it was released six months prior to SOST 2, DC didn’t use the actual cover of the first Swamp Thing Annual …history’s mysteries!

The story featuring Thorn is pretty thin but contains a fun, earth friendly message.

“We were given a clean green world as a gift! This is what happens when we don’t take care of it! The world will become a junkyard! Each generation is the guardian of this planet– passing it on to the next– that’s you! You’re the future– the world belongs to you! I’m not going to stand here and watch you being ripped off! – Clean up your own backyard and you can clean up a planet!”
