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.

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...
