A Swamp Thing DIC Ad, Finally!

Animation Magazine #2 Vol. 6 (1992)
I finally found a DIC ad featuring Swamp Thing. The ad promotes DIC’s line of animated tv series from the early 90s. Swamp Thing the animated series was part of DIC’s lineup so Swampy made the roster within the ad.

Swamp Thing has cake!

Comics Feature Magazine #50 – 1986

Hey everyone, Swamp Thing has cake! This extraordinary display of celebratory Swamp Thing is brought to you by Comics Feature Magazine. Illustrator Martin Cannon-on cover duty-does a bang up job of all the characters depicted, front and back. Fellow Swamp Thing fans on Instagram thought Tom Yeates was responsible for the artwork… that’s a mighty fine testament to Cannon’s work. I’m always thrilled to see an illustration of Swamp Thing smiling, with cake to boot! The celebration is upon us because it’s Comics Feature’s 50th issue.
