EXCLUSIVE: A SNEAK PEEK at the next issue in DC’s new line of full-on reprints — featuring Swamp Thing’s debut…
DC’s Facsimile Edition line is off to a terrific start: Batman #232 came out last week and, thanks to first-rate production values, it’s a real winner. (Click here for the complete REVIEW.)
Next up? 1971’s House of Secrets #92 — including Swamp Thing’s first appearance by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, plus all the ads, letters, back-ups and whatnot.
It’s out this Wednesday (Aug. 28) and we have an INSIDE LOOK for you: Check out the colors. Check out the groovy ads. Check out the intro by Gerry Conway and Wrightson. Check out the two-page back-up by Conway and Dick Dillin, who eschewed his classic JLA style:
And check out the lettercol, which I’ve blown up here so you can read it more easily:
Pretty cool, eh? There are two other back-up stories in the issue too, including one co-written by Jack Kirby.
Anyway, I heartily recommend checking this out in person Wednesday because the devil’s in the details: The cover is classic, glossy paper and the paper stock inside is as close to traditional newsprint as you’re likely to get. It’s like a Bronze Age comic was plopped down in the 21st century.
In all, it’s a terrific package for $3.99 — especially when you consider that a high-grade, unslabbed copy of House of Secrets #92 just sold on eBay for $2,000.
