Swamp Thing 143 (June 1994)

The Parliament of Stones? What’s the Parliament of Stones? Morrison and Millar end the issue on a couple ominous notes, the aforementioned new Parliament being one of them.

He’s got a “Deep Throat” source too. It’s kind of hilarious how Morrison writes a thirties crusading reporter in the modern newspaper age. […]
