Swamp Thing started in '72 & ended in '76 ...Restarted in '85 (DC Comics)
What does it say on the covers? It maybe a different publishing Co. ???
Can you post pictures??

I have the two book covers scanned as PDF images but I am not very tech savvy and I can't for the life of me figure out how to send to you. I tried the full reply function and when I attach the fie and hit send, I crash out of your site.

Can I send to you through normal e-mail?

The real title is DC Special Series, which they didn't put on the outside. Always check the inside indicia to be sure of the actual title if you can't find one under the title on the cover. These 2 are reprints. Regular comics of that period had 40 cent covers usually, so that was my clue to look it up on the Grand Comic Book Database (comics.org), which has a better search engine.

So it's issues #17 and #20, pictured below, right?:




Another mystery solved...
