weird cover o' the week fifteen

I like Nick Pendleton's re-do of Saga #6 ...great Tom Yeates original too.

Saga of the Swamp Thing(how I think of the pre-Moore days) gets a bum rap - no, it's not genius but it was a good comic book. I liked Martin Pasko's serial-story, and Tom Yeates still draws a fantastic Swampy.

Some obviously can't help but think of Yeates and Pasko as a stopgap between the two brilliant minds that created him, and the three that cemented his place as one of the most relevant comics of the 80s, but I did really enjoy SAGA. I was young and it opened the door to sooooo much...
Thanks, guys...
..and thanks, Nick. Artists love drawing Swampy..
