I’m thrilled to share this recent arrival with you and it’s perfect for the Halloween season. The beautifully gruesome artwork is by, Richard Luong. The familiar looking, limited variant covers are featured on issue #10 of the Department of Truth series. The covers are homages to Bernie Wrightson’s House of Secrets #92, as well as the design of the masthead on the right.
James Tynion IV and Martin Simmonds are the creative team behind Department of Truth and it’s a pretty good series so far. If you like cryptids and conspiracy theories you may really enjoy the title.
I ordered the set of books in June and they finally arrived this week. I’m not sure what caused the delay, but they are well worth the wait. I’ve noticed other Swampy fans sharing their books on various social media platforms and was thrilled to see them in person. Richard Luong’s artwork is an amazing reimagining of Bernie’s cover of Swamp Thing’s first appearance. I’d love to hear what Gail Simmone thinks of her reinterpretation. Maybe Tom Kleve will run into her and ask for me.
