Comics Feature Magazine #50 – 1986
Hey everyone, Swamp Thing has cake! This extraordinary display of celebratory Swamp Thing is brought to you by Comics Feature Magazine. Illustrator Martin Cannon-on cover duty-does a bang up job of all the characters depicted, front and back. Fellow Swamp Thing fans on Instagram thought Tom Yeates was responsible for the artwork… that’s a mighty fine testament to Cannon’s work. I’m always thrilled to see an illustration of Swamp Thing smiling, with cake to boot! The celebration is upon us because it’s Comics Feature’s 50th issue.
The book features industry highlights from 1986, with Alan Moore and Frank Miller receiving due praise.
This snippet below had me chuckling.
Martin Cannon’s centerfold features (L-R) Swamp Thing, Stan Lee, Daffy Duck, Jack Kirby, Donald Duck, Saturn Girl, Captain America, Superman, Howard the Duck, She-Hulk, Miracle Man, The Spirit and Cerberus. The ducks-in typical fashion-are worked up into a lather.
Cannon’s centerfold was so nice, they used it twice. The centerfold is used on the back cover and now you can see an uninterrupted (due to the centerfold hinge) version of the illustration.
