    Description

    John Totleben - Original Cover Art for Swamp Thing #98 (DC, 1990). The modern successor to such masters of the bizarre as Hieronymus Bosch and Salvador Dali, John Totleben exhibits a twisted imagination and a warped eye that produces some of the most powerful and disturbing images ever displayed in comics. Along with penciler Steve Bissette and writer Alan Moore, Totleben was responsible for revitalizing and reinterpreting the Swamp Thing beginning in 1984. Presented here is a powerful painting, showing Swamp Thing locked in a life and death struggle with a nightmarish creature from the deepest depths of Hell. Signed by Totleben in the lower left corner, the piece measures approximately 20" x 30" on board and is in excellent condition. A truly striking image that is not soon forgotten.
