There's nothing I like more than zombies than muck encrusted swamp monsters. I've been a fan of Swamp Thing since the first series created by Len Wein And Berni Wrightson, then afterwards the revival of the character by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette, John Totleben and later Rick Veitch. Man-Thing appeared shortly after Swamp-Thing. The creature whose touch burns! I wasn't a big fan at the time, but I grew to like the creature, even though magical aspect of the later stories weren't my cup of tea. The Heap, being the one of the original swamp monsters, along with Theodore Sturgeons IT! were also top of my list. The Heap has a great backstory involving Baron von Emmelman, a World War I German flying ace who was shot down in 1918 over a Polish swamp. He arose from the muck decades later as The Heap and met the Allied ace Skywolf. Another much monster would appear later on TV as part of the Night Stalker series, The Spanish Moss Murders. The Louisiana based Paramafait", a legendary boogeyman would send chills through my young mind when this series first premiered in the 1970's. I've been pulling together images for this new piece that I've finally put down on paper. I have immense respect for the talents of Berni Wrightson, Frank Brunner, Mike Ploog, Steve Bissette, Rick Veitch and John Totleben so I want this piece to shine. Stay tuned for THINGS.
