Swamp Thing v1 #3, 1973 - A remnant from the previous story, the Patchwork Man makes his first full appearance along with the white-haired Abigail Arcane. Unlike the previous issues, this tale has an abundance of small panels, particularly toward the end. Still, there are some outstanding scenes, including the Swamp Thing's destructiveness on page 3 and the mountaintop explosion on page 8. Equally superb are the masterfully designed sequences on pages 3-5 that emphasize extreme heights through vertical panels (see interior page below). This story was later reprinted in DC Special Series #14 and Roots of the Swamp Thing #2. This is number 3 of 10 Swamp Thing issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Wrightson or Swamp Thing issues. See also this blog's Wrightson checklist or Top 10 Wrightson comics.
