    Description

    John Totleben - Original Splash Page Art for Swamp Thing #60, page 16, (DC, 1987). Alan Moore's Swamp Thing series is rightfully remembered as a cornerstone of American comic books. Moore took a muck-encrusted monster whose outdated book was expected to be cancelled before too long and transformed it into the most important ongoing series of its day, one that would transform in turn all of American comics. Following Moore's lead were the two artists most closely associated with the series... Steve Bissette, and John Totleben. Offered here is a nice splash from John Totleben, who utilizes pencil, ink, paint, and collage to create an alien panorama. Original size is approximately 11.5" x 16.5" with an image area of 10" x 16". Signed by Totleben in the bottom right corner. Totleben has managed to create a truly weird environment and a completely original piece of art.
