    The Swamp Thing s epic run by Alan Moore begins here This TPB Hardcover Edition collects Swamp Thing Vol.2 21 27.Creative Team Writer Alan MooreIllustrators Steve Bissette Rick Veitch A GOOD ROOT GROWS If you are a fan of Alan Moore, you must read these hardcovers editions No question about it.For me it had been a wonderful experience It s amazing how brilliant is the writing and how great are the events You will never see the character of Swamp Thing in the same way, after to read this TPBs A RESPECTFUL WRITER I was than happy when DC re published the run of Alan Moore on Swamp Thing on these elegant hardcover editions and I didn t need even a second to decide that I want to buy them.One thing that you can perceive about the personality of Alan Moore and his respect to the work of others is that precisely when he took the job to write Swamp Thing, sure he changed things, every new creative team changed things when they took over a comic book title BUT Alan Moore dedicated a whole issue to resolve and to close the previous story arcs, in rightful and respectful way It wasn t like in other titles that somebody kills a character and bam the new creative team resurrect him her with some dumb explanation Or even without any explanation at all.Oh no, Alan Moore came to a respectful closing in his first issue and then, in the next issue he started to develop his ow...

    When I was a kid, I didn t read comics This is a little strange, as I loved picture books And I loved reading Even so, I d just never gotten into it But back when I was 10 or 11, I was in a convenience store with my mom I saw a rack of comics and thought to myself, Maybe I could buy one Maybe this would be cool So I picked one at random off the rack, took it home, and read it It freaked my shit out Like, all the way out Absolutely terrified me.I didn t understand what was going on it wasn t the first book in a series but there were some kids goofing around with a Ouija board, and then some sort of fucking monster appeared and killed them There was blood everywhere I hid the comic in my toybox and tried not to think about it I didn t pick up another comic until I was in my twenties and already in college That comic was part of Alan Moore s run on Swamp Thing These days, I like to consider myself fairly well read in comics Looking back, it amuses me that I was lucky enough to pick up something written by Alan Moore for my first comic experience Contrarywise, I m a little sad that it was so obviously the wrong comic for me to try to start with It s interesting to read these comics now Moore tells a good story, but even so, these were written back in the early 80 s, and it shows It s not his best work That said, when you re dealing with someone like Alan Moore, even less than their best is pretty excellent For that, and due to a little bit of fond nostalgia, I ...

    There is a red and angry world.Red things happen there.The world eats your wife.And eats your friends.It eats all the things that make you human.And it turns you into a monster.As a youth I didn t get Swamp Thing And reading this as an adult it s rather easy to see why Before I get into any details, I have to just say that the prose in here is breathtakingly beautiful at times This is not a book for children it is a book for people who have seen a bit of the world and have experienced some loss, some fear, some responsibility, some of the things that come with adulthood Because, frankly how else could you identify with what happens here It is also not a conventional superhero story by any definition Consider the following Moore s Swamp Thing had a profound effect on mainstream comic books, being the first horror comic to approach the genre from a literary point of view since the EC horror comics of the 1950s, and he broadened the scope of the series to include ecological and spiritual concerns while retaining its horror fantasy roots WikipediaEcological and spiritual concerns As a child this was far, far removed from my mind Other than that, there are a multitude of things writhing beneath the thin veneer of superhero story the nature of good and evil, what it means to be huma...

    Here Moore laid down a marker in the history of comics, ominous and unlikely as Archduke Ferdinand s tomb Reading through the new wave of British authors who helped to reconceptialize the genre for us poor Americans, one understands and why it had to be this man There is a flair amongst them all for a certain madness and depth of psychology, but Moore was the only one who didn t think it made him special Our curiosity is always piqued by the mysterious stranger, and Moore will always be that.There is a quote of Emerson s which helps elucidate men of mystery to be great is to be misunderstood Most Zeppelin fans don t see the band in terms of their roots in early blues, just as most Tolkien fans and followers don t have the education to recognize the Welsh and Norse folktales he was emulating It seems the kernel of an author s inspiration is often so specific and poorly understood by their audience that they it becomes an endless and entrancing mystery.There was an undeniable and immediate difference in the comic authors of the early eighties, but many of them sinned by way of d...

    I know this is a beloved book and so, so many people adore this and everything else Alan Moore wrote, especially in the 80s, and that all kinds of superlatives are thrown around when discussing Swamp Thing and I m not being contrarian when I say this isn t all that and a bag of chips, either Paul O Brien from the House to Astonish podcast nailed it when he said that if Alan Moore s books were as good as everyone said they were, they d cure cancer Which is to say, I think this isn t a bad book but suffers somewhat from the enormous praise that s built it up to an impossibly high standard, and when I finally read it, I found that it s actually just an ok book First off, the numbering Volume 1 Readers unfamiliar with Swamp Thing and let s face it, there are a lot might think this would be the best place to start but it in fact isn t At least, not if you want to see Alec Holland s death rebirth as Swamp Thing, or his relationship with Abby Cable n e Arcane Matt Cable, or his initial struggles with his new appearance This book coll...

    So good Like the great EC horror comics from the 1950s, Alan Moore s Swamp Thing stories from the mid 1980s do not exploit our fear of the Other, but instead force us to face the dark, downright nasty underpinnings of our own modern world, the frailty and absurdity of our own bodies These are psychological, often philosophical horror stories, sharp and subversive, lyrical and hypnotic, brought to life by artists Steve Bissette and John Totleben in wonderfully creepy fashion.By the way, as I am reading this series in its single issue form, I found myself enjoying the letter pages quite a bit In a letter written months prior to the arrival of Alan Moore published half a year later in 22 those were slower times , for example, Roger Myers from Berkshire, England, warns American readers still unfamiliar with then 2000 AD writer Moore that they are in for a real treat, because that man is nothing short of absolutely brilliant And then the enthusiastic responses to Moore s firs...

    I m slightly biased in favor of Swamp Thing in general since reading Snyder s work, and I m willing to let some other things slide because this is still Alan Moore of Watchmen and V for Vendetta as he s first gaining his fame in the early 80 s, so even when I m juggling all this in my mind, where does this first volume actually land It s okay It doesn t feel at all like a comic for children, and I keep this in my mind because at the time this was written, MOST of them STILL WERE Instead, it s full of tales of descending into madness, loss of identity, fear, and even a bit of heroism when no one else wants to even attempt it.I mean, who gives a crap about some bumluck Louisiana town being ravaged by some other green meanie Not the Justice League, that s for sure As we see I really enjoyed the story where Alec was on the autopsy table for the entire tale It was a great twist on the ghost story, especially when he comes back and learns that his entire self identity is a lie There s so much of that going on throughout this volume, too, and it s definitely not limited to Alec, himself The Swamp Thing is hardly the only major character In fact, the villains are all nicely rounded and fairly easy ...

    Alan Moore s impact on the pop culture landscape is apparent, though I personally feel like his writing can sometimes be a bit dry or esoteric and I m looking at you V for Vendetta But GODDAMN this book had some of the finest writing I ve ever come across Poetic and terrifying and hypnotic and beautiful I m not or rather wasn t a Swamp Thing fan, nor am I that well versed in the history of the DC Universe, but I was glued to every word on every page of this ...
