The Boys from Derby: "The Swamp Creature" by Gill, Larson, and Boxell

Hey, hey, hey, Groove-ophiles! Ya know how much we love swamp creatures here in Groove City, so anytime Ol' Groove chances upon a tale featuring some sorta muck we're gonna put it up here for all to see! This one, the oh-so-brilliantly titled "The Swamp Creature" by Joe Gill, Rich Larson, and Tim Boxell is no Swamp Thing, but it's still pretty cool. Can you hear it sloshing your way from The Many Ghosts of Dr. Graves #58 (May 1976)?


  1. The Groovy Age was a fantastic time for horror titles.

  2. I love this story. It's not heavy, just a simple revenge flick and the creature looks great. I had a copy of the original comic book and, of course, I lost it. Glad to see it here on this blog. Maybe Ole Groove can run a few more Charlton stories drawn by Rich Larson. His style back then fit those stories perfectly.
