'From the very beginning, I had "Put him under the sea, and see what he looks like there," on my laundry list of things I wanted to do, and so this is when that's happening.' -- Charles Soule

"I think the one thing Swamp Thing has been consistent with during its entire run is that it's a book about ideas. It's a place where writers and artists can try almost anything - and they often do." -- Charles Soule

"Because Swamp Thing’s now running around in the same world as the rest of DC’s great lineup, I can put him into situations where he’s interacting with other superpowered characters — in some cases for the first time. Many possibilities for great stories, and I’m going to do what I can to tell a few!" -- Charles Soule

'One of things that I set out to do when I started writing "Swamp Thing" was to give him more of a supporting cast. Swamp Thing's supporting cast was primarily Abby Arcane.' -- Charles Soule

Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing was memorable on many levels. As well as reinventing a rather lackluster take on the titular character and changing the rules of the game completely in "The Anatomy Lesson", he also introduced John Constantine and Swamp Thing's true nature as an embodiment of the plantlife of the world. Constantine would put Swamp Thing through many trials and tests to make him become used to his new existence and the true extent of his powers.

He also did some truly awesome horror stories... This is one that lingers with me, partly because of the hook for the main character, and partly because of the amazing art from Steve Bissette and John Totleben (And Ron Randall too, according to Mr Bisssette himself)

Say hello to the nice people Swamp Thing!



"Hi nice people!"

I was never able to take American's referring to "the Boogeyman" seriously. As a kid in the 1970's it was a dance, and how could a monster be named after a fun, if silly-looking, dance? In the UK there is another name for such monsters, a much less pleasant sounding word, so from Swamp Thing 44, I present...

Bogeymen! )

Alan Moore is quite a popular writer these days with major motion pictures and all, so it's feasible fans of his graphic novels might want to check out Swamp Thing. Herein lies the problem: unlike something like V for Vendetta or Watchmen, Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run is not self contained. In fact the title of the first issue of Swamp Thing, "Loose Ends", reflects this. Earlier editions of the first TPB resolved this problem by simply not including issue, however this isn't a very good solution because some of these "loose ends" return latter in the run. Seeing as the issues leading up to Moore's run were never collected, I think it's fair to post them here.
