Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Before WATCHMEN, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. comic book industry with the revitalization of the horror comic book THE SWAMP THING. His deconstruction of the classic monster stretched the creative boundaries of the medium and became one of the most spectacular series in comic book history.

With modern-day issues explored against a backdrop of horror, SWAMP THING's stories became commentaries on environmental, political and social issues, unflinching in their relevance. SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING Book One collects issues #20-27 of this seminal series including the never-before-reprinted SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #20, where Moore takes over as writer and concludes the previous storyline.

Book One begins with the story "The Anatomy Lesson," a haunting origin story that reshapes SWAMP THING mythology with terrifying revelations that begin a journey of discovery and adventure that will take him across the stars and beyond.

Synopsis:

These are the stories that established SWAMP THING as the ultimate horror comic, in which humanity is every bit as repellant as any creature of the night.

Synopsis:

Writer Alan Moore, the creative force behind America's Best Comics, first made a name for himself in the United States with these landmark stories that revolutionized comics and created a literary niche for adult audiences. In these dark tales, humanity is as repellent as any creature of the night.

crowyhead, August 18, 2006 (view all comments by crowyhead)
Alan Moore's tenure on the Swamp Thing title is considered to be truly groundbreaking. There's massive opportunity for over-the-top farce in Swamp Thing, but Moore takes the character seriously and spins complex tales of love, humanity, evil, and ambiguity. The series is also the birthplace of Hellblazer's John Constantine, and the contrast between Constantine's smart-mouthed, "victory by any means necessary" attitude and Swamp Thing's slow-talking, moral, and fiercely loyal personality is fantastic. This series isn't for the squeamish; we're talking radioactive zombies, dismemberment, creepy-crawlies, etc., but if you like your horror to be smart, well-written, and funny, you need to check this out.
