Dakota Midday: Swamp Thing Collector Seeks World Record

Mar 19, 2015

Swamp Thing is a humanoid mass of vegetable matter that fights to protect his swamp home, the environment and humanity from supernatural and other threats. The DC comic book character has been the subject of two movies, a television series and a five-part animated series.

Sioux Falls illustrator and graphic designer John Boylan has collected over 800 books, memorabilia, toys and more all dedicated to Swamp Thing. Is it the largest Swamp Thing collection in the world? That’s what he’ll find out on Saturday when he attempts to set a Guinness World Record for Largest Swamp Thing Collection. The event takes place on Saturday afternoon at the Sioux Falls Design Center.

Boylan joined Dakota Midday and discussed his love of all things Swamp Thing and setting a Guinness World Record.
