Rest in pieces, Swamp Beast

Monster In My Pocket 4 (1991)

Farewell Swamp Beast. You lasted only four issues but we love you just the same. Last month I wrote about Monster In My Pocket #3, which features a Swamp Thing parody character. Swamp Beast lived on for one more issue before falling to pieces.

It’s time to play and the monsters are like fish in a barrel—or monsters in Barbie’s dream house. The Monsters scramble to avoid being chosen for playtime torture but Swamp Beast doesn’t act quick enough.

Dismayed by Swamp Beast’s consistency, it’s in the easy-bake oven he goes! The other monsters look on in horror as the child bakes Swamp Beast.

Just when you thought things couldn’t get worse, crispy Swamp Beast is removed from the oven and dropped on the floor!

Fear not, Swamp Beast gets the last word in. Even though we’ll never find out, it appears water may help to rehydrate Swamp Beast.
