Bachelor's Grove vs The Heap (2019, Silver Phx)

Writer
Illustrated by Kurt Belcher

COMING SOON!

We are all monstrous. I mean, inside, we all have a darkness that can manifest itself. That is what draws me to the creatures that populate the funny books. Especially the muck monsters. Every one of them, Swamp Thing, Man-Thing, Bog, Theodore Sturgeon’s It… they all feature the physical manifestation of that darkness. Furthermore, none of them asked for that darkness to be made real. And, each of them use those black pits to further whatever their personal concepts of justice may be. That is the dark heart at the center of these characters: they are horrendous avatars of justice, meting out punishments in varying degrees. The one that started it all, at least in terms of comics, is the granddaddy swamp creature himself: The Heap.
