#14 weirdcoveroftheweek #14

No idea what's going on here, and it's from one of the several Swampy series I don't really "count", so to speak, but it is one weird and excellent piece of artwork from painter genius John Tottleben...
Kind of evokes more 70s style covers ...strange, with some mystery built in.
It actually reminds me of a cover from Boris Karloff's Gold Key Tales of Mystery.
Will try to find it...

What is going on with Ms.Cable here? Did the Rot show up early or something?

And speaking of Abby, the NEW 52 Swamp Thing is having some serious fun with their love-affair..
Time to start reviewing the issues one by one, methinks.

    1. I'll need your specific assistance actually - I'd very much like to do VIDEO BLOGS for the reviews.

  2. heh heh..
    I have my Swampy #1 tucked away..
    Might need your help finding it online, BoB..

  3. I think I remember that one. 'Abby' was a false projection or construct, created (on the end of it's tentacle) by a creature that had accidentally fallen into our dimension and 'fed' on belief. Until Swampy showed up and it tried to manipulate him with Abby's form, it had used the image of a preacher to gather survivors of a recent storm into the swamp.

  4. Hmmm...
    I suspect that creature would use a "fake" Swamp Thing to lure me..
    Cheers, Anonymous ..and thanks for posting.
