The Saga of Swamp Thing #37


While, ultimately, I think this issue, which featured the first appearance of John Constantine, is the clear choice, there are a surprisingly diverse bunch of notable #37s out there.

Stormwatch #37 was the first issue written by Warren Ellis in what was to be an awesome run on the book.

Showcase #37 was the first appearance of the Metal Men.

Amazing Spider-Man #37 was the first appearance of Norman Osborn.

Some pretty impressive issues there, eh?

However, the first appearance of John Constantine trumps them all, as he is one of the most impressive comic book creations of the last quarter century, and even had a film based on him!

What’s amazing about his first appearance is that it was a guest-penciler for the issue, Rick Veitch, who drew him first, although regular inker John Totleben was on board for the issue.

Fantastic Four #37, The Sandman #37 and Doom Patrol #37 are all pretty notable issues, as well!

Name me some other notable #37s!
