My Holy Grail for a long time was DC Comics Presents #085 featuring Superman and Swamp Thing.
Already being a huge Swampy fan, this was the first story that really endeared me to Superman and highlighted Swamp Things importance and impact to the DC Universe. A Superman story through the eyes of my favourite character.
Written and drawn by Swamp Thing legends, Alan Moore and Rick Veitch. It came out in 1985, the year I was born. I tried to hunt it down - half-heartedly - for many a moon until Niche Comics opened up in my old hometown. I lived there for 17 years and a year after I moved away to the nearest city... a comic-book shop opened. Fate can be cruel. On my first visit I was rifling through the £1 bins and my gut flipped when I pulled out a well-read copy of DC Comics Presents #85.
Love those moments. Now I need a new Holy Grail.
“Don’t kill if you can wound, don’t wound if you can subdue, don’t subdue if you can pacify, and don’t raise your hand at all until you’ve extended it.”

Since your Cranky Old Uncle Bob might have had something to do with your new questing, you might not mind me advising you to be on the look-out for Fantastic Four #112 that came out only a bit before that Giant-Size; written by Stan Lee, it sports this fabulous cover by Big John Buscema:

He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
