    Description

    Swamp Thing #1 (DC, 1972) CGC NM/MT 9.8 White pages. In a way, this is the true first appearance of Swamp Thing, since the character who had appeared in House of Secrets #92 had a different name (Alex Olsen then, Alec Holland here) and a different origin story (19th century then, 20th century here). Not only does this issue introduce Alex and the new origin, it's the first appearance of supporting character Matt Cable, who would become a villain in years to come and even go on to appear in Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. The issue is by the character's co-creators, writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson. Overstreet 2005 NM- 9.2 value = $180. CGC census 5/05: 2 in 9.8, none higher.
