The title of this story is from the novel (and Oscar-winning 1975 film) of that name by Ken Kesey. It is about life in a mental hospital. Kesey is mentioned in SWAMP THING ANNUAL 5 page 3.

2:1 The SWAMP THING #44("Bogeymen")
Joćo Paulo Cursino pointed out to me the writing on the wall: "Len and Berni were here 1972". Indeed. Len Wein and Berni Wrightson created S.T. in 1972.

6:2 ST was able to visit the afterlife this way in SWAMP THING ANNUAL #2.

?:? Alec and Linda Holland were last seen in Heaven in ANNUAL #2. They are next seen in issue #78. We saw Arkham Asylum, the Joker, and TwoFace in #52.

?:? CIA officer Dwight Wicker and agents Skinner, Cutley and Foley almost killed Swampy in #53. Swamp Thing killed them in #63. They are next seen in hell in #75. ??? refers to the roses which Swampy killed him with.

?:? Constantine tells Woodrue to keep talking because he is being recorded, and John will steal the recording later (?:?) and view it in a video store in the next issue.

COMMENT: Killer Croc appears in the Woodrue story in SECRET ORIGINS #23. There we see Croc recuperating from the paralyzing gas which Batman sprayed him with.

COMMENT: Batman is no stranger to the Swamp Thing. Dr. Huntoon next appears in #70.

COMMENT: SWAMP THING ANNUAL 3 was published after SWAMP THING #65 and before this issue.

COMMENT: In 2004, DC Comics collected issues 65-70 in the trade book "Swamp Thing: Regenesis".
