The cover is quite understated but perfectly composed with few distracting elements. Bernie Wrightson's story art is eye-catching, depicting the creature with a repugnant, viscous texture. The sequence of small insets against large backdrops on pages 16-18 is especially brilliant, expanding both context and scale. Even with tiny panels, Wrightson's talent comes to the fore. This story was later reprinted in Roots of the Swamp Thing #4. This is number 8 of 10 Swamp Thing issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. This is also one of Wrightson's Top 10 comics.
