Pal and purveyor of comics, John Nordstrom brought over a fun gift last night. It’s 336 pages of Editorial Presentation goodness and of course Swamp Thing made it in the book. In fact, this giant book contains a never before published illustration by Phil Hester.

Amongst the seemingly endless spreads of upcoming comic books-which is all this book features-the Swampy illustration called to me! No, it didn’t but it certainly felt unfamiliar. So much so that I thumbed through every Swampy book that Phil Hester illustrated. Not finding it in his books, I figured I’d send a tweet to my friend, Phil. Below is his response.

As always, he provides fun insight.

Almost each page of the book features a write-up paired with an illustration. Most of the images look like covers or title pages.

“The roots are horror; the flowers are fresh.” Such an odd statement

The book is filled with awesome art and previews. Another fun page is the Preacher feature spread. This book was published in ‘94 and Preacher’s first appearance is in ‘95.
