Swamp Thing #51 - Aug. 1986

"Home Free" by Alan Moore, Rick Veitch, and Alfredo Alcala.

The Phantom Stranger makes a brief appearance in this issue of Swamp Thing, as he, along with Deadman, escorts Swampy out of this realm of existence so he can return home:
...the rest of the issue, and the next several, deal with Abby's arrest for having a physical relationship with Swamp Thing, and the hell she endured while he was gone.

This storyline will eventually involve Swamp Thing rescuing Abby and running into Batman and Lex Luthor in the process, and might be my all-time Swamp Thing story arc Moore ever wrote. If you haven't read, do so--it's amazing.
