Swamp Thing #83 - Feb. 1989

"Brothers In Arms" by Rick Veitch, Tom Mandrake, and Alfredo Alcala.

Swamp Thing and Abby have a run in with Enemy Ace(!) in this issue, but The Phantom Stranger finds time to show up at the end:
...he's kind of a downer in this issue, insisting to Abby that Swamp Thing is dead.

He should know, more than anyone, that no one in the DCU is ever really dead.

It really looks like Alcala was under the (common) impression that PS wore a mask, from the way he inked that next-to-last panel.

I don't really like either invisible-to-onlookers Stranger or sloating-in-midair Stranger. Gratuitous displays of magic aren't his style. If he's just standing there pronouncing truths, he can do it standing.
