||Swampmen Muck Monsters of the Comics
Since the first appearance of The Heap in 1942, beasts from the bayou have captured
reader imaginations and have been a staple of the horror genre, whether under the guise of
such characters as Swamp Thing, Man-Thing, Solomon Grundy, or even Marvin the Dead Thing! Some of these nightmarish hulks have also found their way beyond comics, into novels, live-action TV series, toy shelves, cartoon shows, and even major motion pictures. Now, authors Jon B. Cooke and George Khoury reveal the mysteries behind these fascinating beasts, exploring the origins of these creatures through dozens of
fascinating interviews with the creative talents behind the comics, including Steve
Bissette, Steve Gerber, Mike Ploog, Rick Veitch, John Totleben, Val Mayerik, and Alan
Moore! Cover by Frank Cho! (C: 0-1-2)

|Share a Secret with David Mack|
|From David Mack:|
||Post something you have never told anyone before, or something that you rarely share. You have diplomatic immunity here so no one will judge you on it or give you flak.
A sad secret, an old secret, a new secret, something you did, or thought about doing, or experienced or wonder about, or got away with, or got caught doing, or have a fantasy for.
Go ahead. I dare you. Let the confessing begin.
