Addicted to Alex Nino: "The Dark Secret of the Swamp!" by Fleisher and Nino

Happy day after Halloween, Groove-ophiles! We've gotta squeeze in some superbly sinister Alex Nino art before the week's out, so let's do it with a creepy Michael Fleisher swamp story! From Unexpected #152 (August 1973), here is..."The Dark Secret of the Swamp!"

  1. Thanks Groove - always great to see something drawn by the mighty Alex Nino that I wasn't previously aware of, even if I do generally prefer him in his less restrained mad science-fiction mode.

    On the subject of mad science-fiction, now its past Halloween any chance of you posting 2001 #6 this month?
    (Er, not that I want to take your blog for granted or anything...)

  2. How many swamp monsters are there in comics, for cryin' out loud?!
    I can name half a dozen or so of the top of my head, and I have the memory of a gnat.
    Lessee, Solomon Grundy, Swamp Thing, Man Thing, It, the Glob, the Mush, Muck-Man, the Slab...
    Okay, maybe I don't remember the names exactly...

  3. What a fabulous story, I've always been a sucker for a horror story set in a swamp or a bayou.
