ENTER: JOHN CONSTANTINE
In this third volume of the saga of Swamp Thing, you will be witness of the birth of the Vertigo line of comics (once an alternative label by DC Comics to publish material oriented to mature readers, usually involving horror and/or paranormal topics).
You have to keep in mind that at the moment of original publication, Swamp Thing was still a DC Comics title, and Vertigo didn't exist yet (nowawadays DC closed Vertigo and merged it with its main label (that in my opinion was a marketing mistake)).
But here, with the events of the 3rd volume, you can see clearly how the birth of Vertigo came to be, since here, you can watch the first appearance of...
...John Constantine, Hellblazer!!!
There are comic book titles that while you may not know much about them, if you realize the level of supporting characters that risen from them, you have to give them their due respect, like the case of Marvel's Fantastic Four (where characters like Silver Surfer, Black Panther and The Inhumans were introduced first as supporting characters).
And in Swamp Thing, you are introduced to your favorite magician demon hunter, John Constantine!
What else can you ask for this third volume?!
But guess what?...
...You have a lot more!
AMERICAN GOTHIC JOURNEY BEGINS
First you have a shocking warning to the dangers of enviromental polution as only Alan Moore can craft it.
And later, the mysterious John Constantine will put Swamp Thing in the first steps of his iconic "American Gothic" journey, meeting the darkest corners of a country that you thought that you know, but you'll be introduced a secret landscape of America with people, places and objects that will provoke you REAL goosebumps in your skin.
An unusual kind of vampires in a sui generis ambiance that you have never read before.
Not your regular werewolf curse prompting you to think.
And what is a volume with vampires and werewolves without our beloved zombies?! Don't worry since you will have more zombies that you can manage here!
Swamp Thing, now that he accepted his true nature, facing paranormal forces and voodoo magic, he will begin his learning path to new powers and skills, in such levels, that Swamp Thing will become one of the most powerful characters in DC/Vertigo Universe.
I'm not kiddin' !
