WEIRD Cover of the Week #6

Is it just me or does Swampy seem a little out of place on this cover?

This is from a rather surreal period in ol' Swampy's history - his time with the Challengers of the Unknown.

I'm a DC guy - it's true, and a very big fan of the silver age, but even my insane Swamp Thing obsession has never led me to read these..
They just struck me as soo wrong..
buuut that being said, I'm going to try to track 'em down.

Guess I'm finally curious enough to investigate the
WHAT WERE THEY THINKING? side of the story - good drugs? ..a licensing issue? Who can say, really..

Sooo, the moral of the story is that Alan Moore was the second writer to send Swamp Thing to Space. Crazy.
