(Y-11) Old School Monday…Swamp Thing (1972-1976) #1

One of my favorite characters in all of comic books is Swamp Thing, he is up there with Hellboy and Morpheus.

But this comes as no surprise, it was created by a team of true comic book legends.

On writing there was Len Wein , not only did he co-created this amazing character, he also co-created Wolverine and served as editor of one of the most important comic books in history, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons Watchmen.

And what to say about Bernie Wrightson, he illustrated some of the best horror comic books if all time, including a version of Frankenstein.

Below you can see the first time Dr. Alec Holland appears in all his swampy glory.

This first issue basically tells the tragic origin story of our anti-hero, and sets the mood for one of the best comic books ever created, not only in the original run, but also afterward, in the stories by Alan Moore.

The great news us that you can read this first issue for free on Comixology.

I suggest you do so, it would not disappoint.

Now off to read some more.

No one ever reads the same book. We all react to the written word differently. The following are my opinions regarding the books I have read.
