Swamp Thing #11 - Nestor Redondo art (1st Redondo Swamp Thing)

Swamp Thing v1 #11, 1974 - An ancient race of giant, intelligent worms comes to the surface, but their intentions are unclear. Taking over the artistic reins from Bernie Wrightson, Nestor Redondo begins his own memorable run on this horror title. In contrast to the dark, brooding style of his predecessor, Redondo's drawings are lighter and more sophisticated. Two beautifully drawn splash pages are the highlights of the story, including his disturbing rendition of the worms' attack on Matt Cable and Abigail Arcane (page 7). Other artists in this issue include Luis Domingez (cover). This is number 1 of 13 Swamp Thing issues with Redondo art and/or covers. See today's posts or more Redondo or Swamp Thing issues.
