Wrightson’s Swamp Thing 2 (1979)
These two oversized Danish editions arrived in the mail today and I’m thrilled to finally have Wrightson’s Swamp Thing 2 – Patchwork Manden
I was able to track down issue 1, Alec Hollands Sære Skæbne a while ago and it is as awesome as issue two. Issue 1 and two reprint the first two issues-respectively- of Swamp Thing, series one.
The oversized books show off Wrightson’s amazing ability and talent. I’ve included some of my favorite panels, below.
The Patchworkman makes his debut!
Technically, this isn’t the first panel he appears in, I just love this one.
Bernie’s drawing of the shadows and lighting in the next two panels has always blown me away.
A very early appearance by Abigail Arcane.
It’s no wonder she became such a strong character. In this black & white format, her strong shock of black hair is almost iconic.
