Swamp Thing #23 - non-attributed Nestor Redondo art


Swamp Thing v1 #23, 1976 - A new masthead heralds a new direction for the character, but the series ends with this issue. The Swamp Thing's origin is retold, mimicking some of Bernie Wrightson's panels from Swamp Thing #1. Nestor Redondo's last issue is also unfortunately his weakest. While some illustrations are well executed (pages 4-5 & 10), most fall short of earlier standards (perhaps also aided by studio assistants?). One saving grace is a montage creatively formed around the Swamp Thing's face (see interior page below). As with the previous two issues, some comic book guides have failed to attribute this work to Redondo. This is number 13 of 13 Swamp Thing issues with Redondo art and/or covers.
