“Horror we? How’s….”

§ September 21st, 2022 § Filed under swamp thing § 3 Comments

So if you remember this post about the Swamp Thing “Battle for the Bayou” board game (and why wouldn’t you, surely you’ve been reading this blog for 18 years), some of these drawings may appear familiar to you.

Occasionally I’ll troll through the eBay listings for Swamp Thing stuff, seeing if there’s anything new to catch my eye (despite the fact that after Swamp Thing Chalk it’s all downhill). But I did spot these pieces of production art, apparently by Mario Menjavar and Alfredo Alcala (according to the listings) for the board game and other merch being offered for sale. I was tempted, but I think I blew my original art-purchasing budget for the decade, so alas I shall have to be satisfied with these saved scans. All pics of bad guys from the cartoon and toy line, so enjoy, starting with Arcane pre- and post-monstrous transformation:


And here are a bunch of Arcane’s Un-Men (alas, no Cranius to be had):


Neat, right? What I wouldn’t give for that last guy to turn up in the comics.

    Tomahawk was in a SWAMP THING game?

    Huh.

    And THOSE are WAY COOL!

    Carrying around a tiny person on a noose is seriously terrifying. Whoever thought of that should be given an award.

  • Mike: I DVRd SWAMP THING the other night without realizing it was one of our Spanish stations. No subtitles. Now if they’ll only show it on our Polish channel.
