From 1983 through 1987, a young British writer named Alan Moore revolutionized the American comic book. His groundbreaking tenure on DC Comics' SWAMP THING set new standards for graphic storytelling and touched off a revolution in the medium that is still expanding today. Building on the title's framework of gothic horror with a remarkably intuitive narrative style and an unprecedented depth of characterization, Moore's vision was realized through the hauntingly beautiful artwork of such collaborators as Stephen Bissette, John Totleben, Dan Day and Rick Veitch. The result is one of comics' most enduring masterpieces.Now, for the first time, Moore's entire run — including his never-before-reprinted debut issue — is available in archival hardcover editions. This first volume, collecting issues 20-27 of THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING, also features a foreword by famed horror author Ramsey Campbell and a new introduction by Swamp Thing co-creator and original series editor Len Wein.

I am pretty sure this is the first I've read of Swamp Thing. I have a vague memory of Swamp Thing guest starring in an issue of a trade I read long ago, but that hardly counts. So I don't have a background in what Alan Moore is doing here that's different from what came before. What must have been a...

5.0 Swamp Thing Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing
Still a visual marvel of a comic years and years later... Alan Moore is known as being one of the best comic writers ever, and the more and more I read of his, I see why.. I might end up being a very serious Swamp Thing fan by the time I'm done reading this run.

5.0 Swamp Thing, Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing
I got this as a gift from my brother a few years ago, and held off reading it. I figured - it's not super heroey enough for me and who wants to read about an overgrown talking shrub?But I was wrong - this is good stuff. Dark, morbid and dense it's well worth your time. Horror infused, with really go...
