Un-Men at the Foot of Arcane Castle

"Un-Men at the Foot of Arcane Castle" from Swamp Thing vol.1 #2 (DC, 1972) by Len Wein and Berni Wrightson
We tend to talk about Swamp Thing as if it started and ended with Alan Moore, but I'm not gonna feature any Moore at all over the next 5 splashes (for Moore, still check out Saga of the Swamp Thing). Truth be told, most of the horror elements that are still around today were introduced in the original 70s series - the creepy villains, the body horror, the lush gloomy vegetation... That all premiered more than a decade earlier.

  1. Bernie Wrightson is just so good at making things creepy.
