Description

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.

In this second collection of the Swamp Thing hardcover featuring SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #28-34 and SWAMP THING ANNUAL #2, the Earth Elemental says goodbye to the illusion of his own humanity after learning that he is 100 percent plant, meets a crew of benevolent alien invaders inspired by the classic swamp-based comic strip Pogo, and consummates his relationship with Abigail Arcane as only he could.

"Perhaps the brainiest and scariest horror narrative of the '80s." — ROLLING STONE

"The series offers another fine option for the adult horror-comic fan."
—THE WASHINGTON TIMES

"The best muck-encrusted monster in the best comics."
—Neil Gaiman in ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
