Swamp Thing #17 - Nestor Redondo art & cover

Swamp Thing v1 #17 1970s bronze age dc comic book cover art by Nestor Redondo
Swamp Thing v1 #17, 1975 - An evil organization known as the Conclave resurfaces, dispatching several robotic threats to terminate the Swamp Thing. Better known or his lush foliage and nature scenes, Nestor Redondo is surprisingly adept at drawing machinery. His two splash pages are excellently rendered, contrasting the swamp monster's organic body against his cold, mechanical foes. Also noteworthy is the artist's horizontal sequencing on page 3 (see interior page below). This is number 7 of 13 Swamp Thing issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or Swamp Thing issues. See also this blog's Redondo checklist or Top 10 Redondo comics.
