It’s not mentioned here but this volume reprints issues #43 - #50 leading up to the double sized spectacular issue # 50 that to this day is still probably the heaviest comic a major superhero publisher has ever put out. People will always do Good vs Evil stories with angels and demon and heaven and hell but to actually portray evil if not in a sympathetic light but maybe to respect it is something you really don’t see in a superhero comic very much. Heavy stuff.

I got interested in Swamp Thing from Hellblazer. Which is another great comic. I really love this character and was so glad DC heroes didn't interfere with the character progression.

This was the "genesis" of mature comic. Alan Moore took a mostly uninteresting character and gave it new dimensions, without erasing the original materials. The details of the story, dialogue, graphics, drawing, layout, etc. are all perfect. Nothing comes close to it until Sandman.

This was the first Swamp Thing I 've read and I was caught on first page. I have read some other since, but, in its category, this one stays on top of every Things.

Awesome and classic character that has woefully been forgotten amidst a terrible film and sloppy cartoon effort. Swamp Thing is a throwback to pulp, with it's usage of 70's science (hallucinogens are used multiple times and are regarded as normalcy) Swamp Thing is still a lit masterpiece, with the final story, The Sleep of Reason, being my fav. Swamp Thing battles a creature that assumes the form of a greatest fear. This story serves as an examination of trauma, fear and insanity. Another mature story by Alan Moore, regarded as one of the most intelligent and provocative writers in comics in the last century.
