Absolute Swamp Thing: The Oversize Edition

Created by comics legends Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the muck monster from the bayou would go on to become one of DC’s premier horror characters. This oversize edition includes Swamp Thing’s first appearance in The House of Secrets #92 plus Swamp Thing #1-13.

Born and raised in the sparsely populated Upper Peninsula of Michigan, Jon Maki developed an enduring love for comics at an early age.
