Media Release — Comic Book Creator #6 presents SWAMPMEN: MUCK-MONSTERS AND THEIR MAKERS, the second double-size CBC Annual, examining those creepy man-critters that crawled out of the bayou back 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, FRANK BRUNNER, STEVE GERBER, STEPHEN R. BISSETTE, RICK VEITCH, GERRY CONWAY, VAL MAYERIK, JOE ORLANDO, MARTY PASKO, JIM MOONEY, JOHN TOTLEBEN, TOM YEATES, KAREN BERGER, JESSE SANTOS, MICHAEL USLAN, MICHAEL W. KALUTA, LOUISE SIMONSON, ROY THOMAS, and the remembrances of many others.
Behind the chilling FRANK CHO cover, there’s also these astounding stories: “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! Edited by JON B. COOKE.
