CBC's second double-size annual, examining those creepy man-critters that crawled out of the bayou back in the 1940s, to the explosion of titles in the 1970s, through the memories of the artists and writers who created them! A stunning line-up of interviews discuss Swamp Thing, Man-Thing, The Heap, Lurker of the Swamp, It, Bog Beast, and even Marvin the Dead Thing: Bernie Wrightson, Alan Moore, Mike Ploog, Len Wein, Steve Gerber, Stephen R. Bissette, Rick Veitch, Val Mayerik, Jim Mooney, and John Totleben.
Includes all these astounding features: "It Started with 'It': The Theodore Sturgeon Connection"; The Romance of Swamp Thing: Heartbreak Inside the House of Secrets; With the Helping of the Heap: Alan Moore's Anatomy Lesson; Jesus is Not Alright with DC; Rick Veitch and Cancelled Comics of Calvary; and The Lost Bernie Wrightson Swamp Thing Graphic Novel.
Over ten years in the making, this is the definitive look at that ground-breaking horror comics sub-genre, so jump into the muck 'n' mire for CBC's scintillatingly sinister sixth ish! Hundreds of illustrations, many in color.
