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 more 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 own ideas.
THE CREATIVITY'S SEED
More than Watchmen, V for Vendetta or any other of his very popular works, HERE, on Swamp Thing is the best proof of his mastery of words and his remarkable genius.
Since... hey!, we were talking about Swamp Thing, at that moment in comic books, nobody cared about if that title was even active, and Alan Moore showed a great truth:
Any character can be interesting in the hands of a talented writer.
Definitely, highly recommended.
Read information about the authorAlan Moore is an English writer most famous for his influential work in comics, including the acclaimed graphic novels Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From Hell. He has also written a novel, Voice of the Fire, and performs "workings" (one-off performance art/spoken word pieces) with The Moon and Serpent Grand Egyptian Theatre of Marvels, some of which have been released on CD.
As a comics writer, Moore is notable for being one of the first writers to apply literary and formalist sensibilities to the mainstream of the medium. As well as including challenging subject matter and adult themes, he brings a wide range of influences to his work, from the literary–authors such as William S. Burroughs, Thomas Pynchon, Robert Anton Wilson and Iain Sinclair; New Wave science fiction writers such as Michael Moorcock; horror writers such as Clive Barker; to the cinematic–filmmakers such as Nicolas Roeg. Influences within comics include Will Eisner, Harvey Kurtzman, Jack Kirby and Bryan Talbot.
