Swamp Thing panel plus Meet & Greet


2:00 PM to 4:00 PM

How many comic book characters can you name that have been with us for over 40 years without ever having worn a cape or a single stitch of spandex?  Swamp Thing rose from the bayous of Louisiana and has been with us from the days of fifteen cent comics right up to the four dollar wave of the New 52. Big Wow! is going to introduce you to four reasons why this character has endured for over four decades. 

Tom Yeates began penciling and inking the second run of Swamp Thing in 1982 to coincide with the opening of the first Swamp Thing movie. Mr. Yeates gave us some of the most memorable and compelling covers including issue #21, Alan Moore’s “The Anatomy Lesson”

Steven Bissette & John Totleban worked with Alan Moore to redefine the history and character of Swamp Thing. While working on the book the pencil and ink duo were multiple Kirby Award winners including “Best Art Team”.

Rick Veitch was the first artist to pencil a fully realized John Constantine in his first full issue appearance of Swamp Thing #37. Mr Veitch also has the distinction of being the first writer/artist to take creative control of the series. 

These four Kubert School Alumni will share stories on all things Swampy and answer any questions you may have.
