29 more wild, pre-code adventures of the original swamp monster. Almost 20 years before DC's Swamp Thing brought Bernie Wrightson to fan acclaim, The Heap was creeping around towns and highways and righting wrongs, nicely eliminating bad guys (this was before the code) and all without a word of his own. He was the Frankenstein of the swamp, featured in the back pages of Airboy Comics and actually the result of a lost German pilot who was melded in swamp water and vegetation!

This is a fun series. Although The Heap never got his own title, he often starred on the cover of Airboy Comics--he was that popular. Publisher Hillman is today know for above average writers and these stories of horror and mystery hold up well.

Wonderful 8-page illustrated introduction features an interview with Heap artist Ernie Schroeder by Jim Amash, from Alter Ego in 2004.
