8.  Swamp Thing v1 #10, 1974 - First introduced in issue 2, Arcane and his ghoulish Un-Men return to take possession of the Swamp Thing's body. In his final issue, Bernie Wrightson illustrates the characters and graveyard setting with exquisite detail. Surrounding tree branches are bare and form ominously broken patterns. The splash on page 8 perfectly captures the Un-men's freakish deformities. Most compelling is Wrightson's phenomenal cover: an entanglement of unnatural limbs and bodies fighting for control. This story was later reprinted in Roots of the Swamp Thing #5. This is number 10 of 10 Swamp Thing issues with Wrightson art and/or covers. This issue is also one of my Top 10 Wrightson comics. This issue is also included in this Wrightson gallery. Find >this issue or more >Wrightson or >Swamp Thing comics on ebay.
