I’m not going to try and blow smoke up your ass with respect to Wes Craven‘s 1982 version of Swamp Thing. It isn’t a particularly good movie, and it isn’t a particularly good telling of the Swamp Thing story that originated in the DC anthology House of Secrets and was eventually at the forefront of the ‘mature comics’ boom of the ’80s thanks to writer Alan Moore.
But this Swamp Thing poster, created by artist Florian Bertmer for Mondo and the Alamo Drafthouse, is a great representation of Swamp Thing. So, as an old-school fan of the character, I’ll take it purely in that spirit. See the full image below.
On the left in the gallery above is the regular version. It is a 24″x36″ screen print, hand numbered, in an edition of 230. Printed by D&L Screen Printing. $45
On the right is the variant. It is a 24″x36″ screen print w/ glow-in-the-dark and metallic inks, hand numbered, in an edition of 90. Printed by D&L Screen Printing. $80
A few more detailed images can be seen here.
Follow Mondo on Twitter for the on sale announcement. This poster will be for sale online at a random time on Friday, August 19th.
