    Description

    House of Secrets #92 (DC, 1971) CGC NM 9.4 Off-white pages. The most valuable DC comic of the Bronze Age is this one right here, the first appearance of Swamp Thing. This origin story set down the facts a bit differently than some might remember: for one thing, Swamp Thing was Alex Olsen, not Alec Holland. He was also a hit, leading to the character getting his own book in short order. Len Wein wrote the story, and fan favorite Bernie Wrightson drew it as well as the cover. By the way, host character Abel also introduces a couple of other yarns in the book, with art by Alan Weiss and Dick Dillin. Only six copies of this issue have been certified with a higher grade by CGC as of this writing. Overstreet 2004 NM- 9.2 value = $800.
