The Comic Report Fanzine

I bought this lot of Comic Report fanzines to finally obtain issue #2, which features Swamp Thing on the cover. The Canadian zine from 1976 is produced by Jeff Zinger but features a great deal of artwork from Dave Sim and Gene Day.

The interior features an illustration by Vince Lavarello. I think it’s Swamp Thing but your guess is as good as mine.

The bulk of issue #2 is an interview with Dave Sim by Jeff Zinger.
