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, Bog Beast, It, The Glob, Solomon Grundy, The Swamp Lurker or ever 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 ever major motion pictures. Now, authors Jon B. Cooke and George Khoury reveal the mysteries behind these fascinating beasts in "Swampmen: Muck-Monsters of the Comics", 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 many more! Also included is an in-depth conversation with the award-winning author of "From Hell" and "The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen", Alan Moore, on his revitalization of the most famous muck monster of all, Swamp Thing! This book is packed with page after page of eye-popping art - much of it never-before seen and created especially for this book - plus descriptions of just about every such monster to grace the funny-book page, and the definitive history of this odd and captivating subject. So, if you're a fan of comics, horror stories or American pop culture, come join us down by the bayou for a little storytelling!
