Shade the Changing Swamp Thing Reference

After posting a few comic books that referenced Swamp Thing, Billy Famine on Instagram messaged me to ask if I’d seen the one in Shade the Changing Man #66 from December of 1995. I hadn’t seen it and immediately found a copy at my local comic shop. It’s such a thrill to find more Swampy references and/or appearances. I know there are more out there and it’s so fun to get a tip from a fellow Swamp Thing fan.

Shade, the Changing Man #66, “The Alligator People” takes place in Louisiana. Shade visits the area to help a friend and winds up dealing with a killer Alligator wreaking havoc. Shade gets a little nervous when he gets too close to the perpetrator. As you can see below, Shade can only hope it’s friendly Swamp Thing.
