I definitely enjoyed this one, and it was Alan Moore in good shape (certainly better shape than that mass of who knows what known as From Hell, which I tried to read and dropped). Anyhow, I was familiar with the character of Swamp Thing, but I had never really read it. So, this makes a pretty good entry point as Moore reimagines and gives us a new story. The gothic element is strong in this series, and it is one I enjoyed. It is something I don't see in many comics any more. Though this series came out in the 1980s, it still holds up pretty well now. And the art is actually pretty good. Worth a read. ( )

Moore right at the very beginning. Partially before Watchmen, and setting out his much-imitated greatness. Take a B-movie horror monster and put him up against other B-movie monsters. But leave the plot ascance and hunt for the bigger themes and change the nature of good vs. evil stories as a result. Elevate your swamp monster to the status of a god, and then let him retire to a cabin in the woods. And get Bisette to write you in a character who cares more about the story than the cash in your final one. He may get screwed about off the page, but on it he's peerless in the comics world.

It seemed like I was missing something right at the start! I guess this only started with Swamp Thing #21, when Alan Moore took over the writing of it. Oops! Didn’t realize. And didn’t really know the story. It did seem to back up a bit after the opening bit to explain, and I found the explanation of how the Swamp Thing came to be quite interesting. The rest of the book was ok. I don’t think I’ll continue the series. ( )

I've heard so much over the years about [a: Alan Moore|3961|Alan Moore|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1304944713p2/3961.jpg]'s legendary run of the Swamp Thing. The character itself intrigued me, if only due to knowing of its horror reputation as something often praised. Like Frankenstein's Monster, however, I never quite expected it to be so beautiful. Alan Moore breathed life into a creation more beautiful than it's creator, and weaved together plotlines surprisingly relevant to our world today. There's a timelessness to this story that often doesn't exist in the post-comic censorship years of comics; too many people went too grim-dark with the power they were given - Moore's restraint is beautiful.

Alan Moore quite literally deconstructed the Swamp Thing. He resurrected him as something wholly different to Alec Holland, and infused him with a consciousness more than human only after he decided to give voice to the green. Holland turned from a mere horrific monster bent upon revenge, and then trying to reclaim humanity, to a creature at ease with his new identity. He became certain of himself and in the voice of the earth - a Green Man archetype without the trickster notion thus far.

I eagerly look forward to continuing to read this run. Somehow, it's even better than I expected it would be. [a: Alan Moore|3961|Alan Moore|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1304944713p2/3961.jpg] truly is one of the great masters, and man does the artwork do his prose justice. ( )

I really don't think I could say enough good things about this book. My adjective vocabulary is severely tested when I read comics of this caliber. Well, any type of book that blows me away like this did. The artwork is mind boggling, with incredible coloring, and the writing...well, it IS Alan Moore. He makes me feel sympathy for the "bad" guy, even though he's most obviously insane, and I will admit to wanting to finish the book quickly so I wouldn't end up reading it before going to bed. Just the right amount of creepy. Simply amazing. ( )
