Episode 29 - The Thing is… - Swamp Thing #1

February 2, 2016

Yes, we know it's February, but we still say Happy 2016 at the start of this, our first show of the year. We're somehow managing the trick of getting all retro with a brand new comic in this one, as we take a look at the return of Swamp Thing's original writer in issue one of the new Swamp Thing limited series. Given the wealth of different takes and additions to the mythology that have some along since Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson first created the Thing in the Swamp, what's it like having Wein back?

And given the unquestionable impact of Alan Moore's retcon of Swampy's origin, Jon takes a swing at a 3&1 of Retconned Origins. If you know his favourite ranting subjects at all, you'll probably know what's his Worst One Ever.
