Otherwise, no big changes to the website:
- I’m still doing my big Swamp Thing re-read/summaries and am now well into the Nancy Collins run. I’m actually looking forward to getting past the 1990s and re-reading some of the big DC crossovers again.
- I’m still trying to add a couple of new references to the Bibliography every month. The last major publication I added was Back Issue #92, which featured interviews with Tom Yeates and Marty Pasko about their issues of Swamp Thing. I’ve also recently finished scouring online versions of 80s UK fanzine Arken Sword for Swampy-related info.
- I’ve been meaning to transcribe some episodes of Parlipod but it was pretty slow-going and my free time has lately been taken up by other activities. I would like to finish the Nancy Collins interview at some point in the next couple of months.
Otherwise, I’m eagerly awaiting the International Swamp Thing fanzine and the final 2 issues of Providence and considering when I’ll make on start on Alan Moore’s epic Jerusalem.
I’ve now summarised up to the end of the Veitch/Wheeler time-travel arc and hope to finish the rest of the summaries on that webpage in the not-too-distant future.
I’ve also made some changes to the Bibliography page. There is now a little icon underneath most references that will allow you to download a .ris file for importing into your reference management software. Secondly, new additions to the page are now marked as *New*. There are several new references in the Bibliography, with more coming soon.
Again, it has been a while between posts, but I am now on a mission to finish off my summaries of Swamp Thing up to issue #100, and make the #101-150 appearance list visible. There’s also a couple of references I’ve been meaning to add to the Bibliography for a long time so I will also try to do that soon too.
It is also not too late to contribute to John’s Kickstarter campaign and preorder the first issue of the International Swamp Thing Fanzine. I’m extremely excited to get my copy in the mail in early 2017. Before that, there is this issue of Back Issue to look forward to in September, featuring some articles about Bronze Age horror and our favourite muck-encrusted hero.
Hello loyal readers,
Real life and other reading has gotten in the way of this website for a while, but I’m going to try to get back into it. I’ve finished rereading the Moore run, so my notes for #50-#64 are now up here. Many thanks to Greg Plantamura for his website, from which I am still leeching revelatory information.
I’ve also been stealthily adding entries into the bibliography from time to time, primarily working off of information from John’s website, and the Parliament of Trees Facebook group.
I’m also going to add a link to the Parliament Podcast in the relevant page. I haven’t actually listened to any episodes as I can’t seem to soak in information that way, but I’m sure it’s very insightful.
Hope you are all enjoying the new Swamp Thing miniseries by Len Wein and Kelley Jones. I’m very interested to see where it goes.
