Description

    Steve Bissette and John Totleben Swamp Thing #29 Cover Original Art (DC, 1990). Here is the only cover from Alan Moore and Steve Bissette's legendary, ground-breaking run on Swamp Thing that Heritage has offered to date. Indeed, masterpieces such as this are seldom offered in the open marketplace. The modern successors to such masters of the bizarre as Hieronymus Bosch and Salvador Dali, Steve Bissette and John Totleben are gifted with feverish imaginations and eyes for horrific detail -- as a result, they produced some of the most powerful and haunting images ever seen in comics. Along with penciler Steve Bissette and writer Alan Moore, Totleben was responsible for revitalizing and reinterpreting Swamp Thing, back in 1984. In "Love and Death," Abigail Arcane and Swamp Thing come to an understanding about Alec Holland. Alan Moore won the 1985 and 1986 Jack Kirby Awards for "Best Writer" for Swamp Thing. Moore, John Totleben, and Steve Bissette won the 1985 Jack Kirby Award for "Best Single Issue" for Swamp Thing Annual #2. They also won the 1985, 1986, and 1987 Jack Kirby Awards for "Best Continuing Series" for Swamp Thing. Signed by Bissette and Totleben in its lower margin, this must-have, peak period cover has an image area of 10" x 15", and it's in Excellent condition. As an added "art bonus," there is a superb pencil portrait of the Swamp Thing on the back of the page.
