Like you, I have a deep rooted passion for DC Comics' Swamp Thing. Swampy's rich history has provided a great deal of creative and entertaining content over the past 40 years. The legendary creative teams that have worked on the comic, the two films, two television series and all of the unique/oddball collectibles have helped establish a focused, dedicated fanbase that is rivaled by few. These loyal muck-encrusted Swamp Thing fans are all over the world and I've been fortunate enough to share in their passion and establish relationships with many of them.

My name is John Boylan. I hold the Guinness World Record for the largest collection of Swamp Thing memorabilia. To celebrate Swamp Thing fandom, I am designing and producing the world's first international Swamp Thing fanzine. The fanzine will be a wonderful collaboration involving many talented people from around the world and will serve as something special for all Swamp Thing fans and lovers of fandom to share. The fanzine features character creator spotlights, interviews, pro and amateur art, a science corner (written by an actual scientist), and much much more! Creative contributors include Swamp Thing creator Bernie Wrightson, Rick Veitch, Nancy A Collins, Phil Hester, Kim DeMulder, Bill Munns, Rich Handley, Daniel Emery Taylor and many more! The fanzine will have a limited print run so that I can focus on using good quality materials and to make the fanzine feel even more unique and special to Swamp Thing fans.

Risks and challenges

Since this is an independent project handled by one person, extra time may be needed to ship books to international backers. Each book is being individually shipped by me, the producer/creator.

If any delays arise during the printing process (due to any number of print production issues), all backers will be updated and notified.
