The Saga of the Swamp Thing 10 (1983)
Number of the Beast
Last we saw Swampy and friends, they were tied up with the help of Milton’s powerful psionic/telepathic powers. Kay and his crew are desperately and violently trying to convince Swampy, Feldner, Liz and Barclay to join sides with them in order to hunt down Casey and stop her evil/destructive plans. (Hell of a run on sentence, I know)
Swamp Thing isn’t left with a choice. It’s Europe with Kay or bust… I mean burst. Continue reading “Saga of the Swamp Thing 10 (series 2)”
The Saga of the Swamp Thing 9 (1983)
Prelude to Holocaust
Swamp Thing, Liz and Barclay are headed toward the Jersey shore in their spirit powered helicopter. So far so good except for the lack of leg room in the back seat for Swamp Thing.

The Saga of the Swamp Thing 8 (1982)
Here’s Looking at You Kid
Before jumping right in, please take a moment to enjoy how confident Swamp Thing looks in gold.
Last we saw Swampy, he was plunging to the depths of the ocean to destroy a giant, herpes ridden, alien squid. After destroying the alien being, Swamp Thing finds himself washed ashore a mysterious island, dazed and confused.
The book begins with the players.

The Saga of the Swamp Thing 7 (1982)
I Have Seen the Splintered Timbers of a Hundred Shattered Hulls
The title is as convoluted as the story. I enjoy seeing Swamp Thing mix it up with the strangest of foes but the herpes based octopus alien from the bottom of the sea has never been a favorite of mine.
I’m not positive but this may be the first and last cover that General Sunderland (white figure, in devil costume) appears on. Based on the giant eye on his forehead, you’d think he was transformed into one of the alien’s minions but fear not, the cover doesn’t quite reflect what happens inside. side note: I could watch Swamp Thing break out of wooden cargo containers all day.

The Saga of the Swamp Thing 6 (1982)
Sins of the Water
One of my favorite Swamp Thing covers. Eyeball tipped tentacles would be terrifying but Swampy handles it with grace.
Dr. Barclay, Liz Tremayne and Swampy drive back to North Carolina to find out where Casey (the telepathic child) has disappeared to. We quickly find out that Casey’s name is Karen and Dr. Barclay finds Karen’s mother still recuperating after being shot by her husband (SOTST #1)
Karen’s mother gives Dr. Barclay a medallion to help find her daughter…
… to have her killed. Continue reading “The Saga of the Swamp Thing 6 (Series 2)”
The Saga of the Swamp Thing 5 (1982)
The Screams of Hungry Flesh
It’s been a busy, Swampy filled month so far. New books and collectibles have sidetracked me a bit from keeping up with posting Swamp Thing’s chronology. The tiny Swamp Thing cameos in the Convergence books have been fun to keep up with and it’s nice to see Len Wein writing Swampy again.
I’m currently finalizing a Swamp Thing costume for O Con, a local comic book convention out of Omaha, Nebraska. The convention runs May 29-31, and this will be my first attempt at putting together a Swamp Thing outfit. I’ll post pictures at the end of the month. Now, back to series two…
In SOTST #4, we last saw Swamp Thing being loaded into an ambulance after taking on a crazed, murderous demon.
Out of the fire and into the frying pan. Swamp Thing is heading back into the hands of Sunderland Corp thanks to Liz Tremayne. Continue reading “The Saga of the Swamp Thing 5 (Series 2)”
The Saga of the Swamp Thing 4 (1982)
In the White Room
Last issue, Swamp Thing left behind a flooded town of vampires. Issue four continues the madness as Swamp Thing helps catch a killer.
The whole scene is grim; even the emaciated dog at the top. Continue reading “The Saga of the Swamp Thing 4 (series 2)”

A Town Has Turned To Blood
Like series 1 issue 9, Swampy is having a tough time staying on trains.
The pair make their way through Rosewood, IL

Something To Live For
A merry Christmas and happy holidays to all. I was fortunate enough to receive some wonderful Swampy related items for Xmas and can’t wait to share them. In the meantime, Here is issue two. Continue reading “The Saga of the Swamp Thing 2 (series 2)”

What Peace There May Be In Silence
Series 2! I like to think Swampy stepped out of the Tardis. The monument in the center of town has the same general shape… without the general on the top Continue reading “The Saga of the Swamp Thing 1 (Series 2)”
