  1. Alejandro

    A truly masterpiece This Hardcover edition collects Swamp Thing 43 50.Creative Team Writer Alan MooreIllustrators Stephen Bissette, John Totleben Stan WochTHE WRITING FLOURISHESIn this fourth hardcover edition you will find easily many of the best stories of the amazing run by Alan Moore on Swamp Thing.The famous story like The Parliament of the Trees which is one of the treasures in the history of comic books.Also, you will have here The End where a whole cast of guest characters will help Swam [...]

  2. David Schaafsma

    Worth waiting for This one contains some of the best stories in the series, with maybe one award winning story in particular to highlight A lot of stuff is happening in this volume, but the resolution of the John Constantine trip across Amerika Moore called it American Gothic, and talked about it as a kind of Ramsey Campbell version of Easy Rider, a real horror show is Ghost Dance, inspired by a story he had heard of the horrific existence of Sarah Winchester yes, that Winchester, of the rifle f [...]

  3. Bradley

    Fascinating battle and a crossover event that didn t suck Or did it I mean the final meeting with the Parliament of Trees was cool for happening, but it wasn t really satisfying The gathering storm of Crisis, pulling together all the magical types and all of heaven and hell and space and time, culminated in what What did I just read here There were tragic deaths and a conflict that even laid the Spectre low And it was freaking resolved with a view spoiler Handshake hide spoiler Please.And yet wi [...]

  4. Sesana

    Mostly outstanding, with what may be some of the best issues yet The overarching story that was begun in the last collection is mostly resolved here It does sort of tie into Crisis on Infinite Earths, but in a very roundabout way view spoiler Swamp Thing s unease around Alexander Luthor is hilarious in hindsight, though there s no way Moore could have known what would eventually happen with him hide spoiler Instead, Swamp Thing, Constantine, and a host of DC s magically oriented characters band [...]

  5. Printable Tire

    This started out great like the others ones but I gotta say I got nervous when it entered Crisis of Multiple Crossovers territory however it s the mark of a great comic book writer to handle obnoxious marketing schemes with charm re Morrison in Animal Man and Moore goes even further by adding his own impressive potions to the big party I m also not too too much of a fan of cataclysmic happenings easy heightened suspense, but where s the story going to go afterwards and my interest and admiration [...]

  6. Allie

    Swamp Thing is a badass I can t believe everybody isn t talking about him He s kind of like a zen Hulk Kind of I always love graphic novel cameos This one had plenty Very very cool.

  7. Matt

    I just can t get enough of Alan Moore I ve never read anything of his that hasn t changed my world From Hell is still probably my favorite, but Watchmen, V for Vendetta, and now Swamp Thing the man is flawless I m pretty sure this is my first five star book in a long while, and I m glad I haven t given anything else five stars because of how it would cheapen the ranking of this books Looking over the last few volumes, you ll see that I gave it 3s and 4s, and that s largely because Alan Moore sho [...]

  8. Morgan

    Giving this four stars still, but this volume was as greatI think I like the last two issues a lot though DC does magic occult stuff well.

  9. Jesse

    Not my favorite volume of Moore s Swamp Thing run I have always thought he is at his best when he is unfettered by mainstream comic book style continuity, and the Crisis on Infinite Earths is the polar opposite of that The final issue, when he trots out a dozen or so obscure occult based superheroes for a final battle with evil, was entertaining for what it was, but I had to keep open on my laptop to have any hope of keeping my head above water, comprehension wise If I understood Zatanna, Dr Fat [...]

  10. Artur Coelho

    paradoxal, no autor de Watchmen, Promethea e Miracleman Alan Moore tem declarado de forma consistente o seu desprezo pelo g nero super her is nos comics O moralismo primitivo, as conota es sexualizantes dos homens em roupas justas e mulheres em trajes reveladores, disfar ados sob a capa de hero smo e de poderes m ticos, condenados a hist rias elementares e repetitivas E, no entanto, quando Moore mergulha neste g nero coisas fant sticas acontecem Talvez porque n o tema levar o g nero aos seus lim [...]

  11. Robert Wright

    Back before Alan Moore took himself way too seriously, he did this thing called writing comic books In a field that generally didn t set the bar for that too high, he went so far beyond that that he ended up setting an entirely new standard for what to expect out of a comic book.Perhaps this is a touch of hyperbole Moore certainly didn t single handedly transform comics, despite what he may think Still, his work in the 80s was part of a great time in comics that seriously changed the industry An [...]

  12. Michael

    Moore, Bissette and Totleben continue to broaden the epic scope of the Swamp Thing title by incorporating the DC Crisis, bringing the apocalypse to a head While Moore is at the height of his powers with such grand sweeping plots, Swamp Thing begins to be hindered by the rest of the DC Universe s concerns I d much prefer a straight Swamp Thing graphic novel, where Moore is given free reign with all of his characters.43 This issue includes a great way to make Swamp Thing himself a mind altering dr [...]

  13. David Leslie

    If I could wish a book into existance it would be a collected DC ABSOLUTE or omnibus version of Alan Moores six trade paper hardback run on Swamp Thing.Especially when there s so many books that get but don t warrent the ABSOLUTE treatment,I know in my gut it won t happen but what a book that would be It would beat any current ABSOLUTE edition Sandman would be the only equivalent in writing quality IMO,even Alan Moores ABSOLUTE TOP 10 which consists of 4 the 2main vol s,SMAX The 49ers of some of [...]

  14. Orrin Grey

    Everyone s got their favorite Alan Moore comic, and I love Watchmen as much as the next guy, but for me his very best work might be his acclaimed run on Swamp Thing, which is finally being re released in classy hardcover formats And so I am, of course, picking them all up I don t think it s an exaggeration to say that these stories changed comics, any than I think it s an exaggeration to say that they re some of the best horror writing that s ever been done Top notch stuff.

  15. Eric Mikols

    I m glad I decided to pick these volumes up I don t know why I doubted if I would like it, especially with Moore involved, but it s turning out to be one that I look most forward to in getting This volume is dark as it takes place in the spiritual realm The battle to stop an all destroying force in the land of the dead is fought and only Swamp Thing can stop it There s great cameos, the Spectre, the Demon Etrigan, the Stranger, Deadman, and others It all reads like a precursor the Sandman, but h [...]

    The first story about the hippie who finds and picks up a piece of Swamp Thing is wonderful The reactions of the two people who eat it for different reasons are great stories and justice The story about the haunted house was also excellent The main story about the battle between good and evil was only so so Swamp Things encounter with the adversary was foreshadowed way too much.

  17. John Burns

    I prefer the small, self contained, unconventional little stories in this saga The big, horror drenched epic battle of good and evil that dominates most of this volume is typical of the kind of swamp thing stories that i find the least compelling Hopefully the next volume will invest into invention and feeling rather than just sheer scale like this one did.

  18. Alex

    There s some really great stuff in this collection, with the best probably being the haunted house story The lead up to the apocalypse is great, but the apocalypse itself if a bit of a letdown I wasn t expecting a repeat of the central conceit of Under the Pyramids by Lovecraft Houdini.

  19. Aidan

    If anyone ever asks you to recommend a comic that features haunted houses, metaphysics and a delicious lampooning of tabloid papers then look no further

  20. Madhurabharatula Pranav Rohit Kasinath

    Alan Moore is obsessed with sex I expect nothing less from a poly amorous anarchist deeply influenced by mysticism and the occult but at times his obsession tends to overshadow his rather original voice His run on Swamp Thing is probably the only comic where his sexual fetishes and hippie environmentalism complement each other to produce a stunning work of graphic novel art.When I reread the phrase above I cringe To use terms like hippie environmentalism is rather reductive but I am hard pressed [...]

    Podr an hacerse miles de declaraciones halag e as sobre esta obra en general y este tomo en particular, pero para qu aburrirlos con nuestras limitadas prosas cuando gente mucho m s capacitada ya ha hecho tales declaraciones Por eso les transcribimos aqu la introducci n de este mismo tomo en su edici n espa ola de ECC a cargo de nada menos que el pollo de Alan Moore Neil Gaiman.La Cosa del Pantano de Alan Moore pr logo Bueno, qu quer is saber Podr amos hablar de la filosof a que hay detr s de tod [...]

  22. Geoff Sebesta

    It is at this point that this book becomes indispensable At some level, this comic had to be, and we have all read this story, even if we haven t read the comic I sure haven t.But the story of the war between the gods, the secret assemblage of wizards, the deadly seance these concepts have leaked out of this comic and into the world, and have become the assumed underpinnings of so many things, from Harry Potter to the Marvel Cinematic Universe It became the blueprint for the modern iteration of [...]

  23. Rolando Marono

    The good This is by far the best Swamp Thing volume until now Alan Moore weaves a dark twisted fantasy with ecological issues and Mr Constantine at the center of it This is not merely a comic about a Swamp Monster, this is a complex analysis to American Culture and its perception about good and evil The ending though predictable, still got surprise elements and it can make you say out loud wow Swamp thing character got fleshed out The parliament of trees and the murder of crows The poetic influe [...]

  24. Sunil

    After a few pretty good, creepy stand alone stories I especially liked Windfall, about what happens when other people eat Swamp Thing s yams , Swamp Thing takes a turn for the apocalyptic and comes face to face with the Crisis This volume becomes very Constantine centric, and Swampy seems like a supporting character in his own comic at times Constantine does finally give Swampy some answers about his true nature, and it s pretty cool, but once they re trying to defeat some unknowable evil and sa [...]

  25. Bonnie G.

    I like the cool pooling together of all of D.C Mystics to fight this kind of evil shadow of hell manifestation We see of John Constantines life, of Abby dealing with the ramifications of being married to Swamp Thing, the cool tree spirits of when Swamp thing becomes rooted and part of the earth and realization of his power once he gets over not being human Honestly, reading Sandman first detracts from these stories since he stole from so much in this volume But really it s great and weird and [...]

  26. Martin Chalupa

    Great finale of story which was going through this and previous volume I was nicely surprised how the final battle was done I got bored of Lord of the Rings like epic battles between good and evil There are still references to characters which probably showed before and I don t know them or author just likes introducing mysterious characters There is little said about why they are there or why they know main characters However I m pretty used to that and it wasn t hurting my enjoyment of the sto [...]

  27. Jamie Sigal

    Another really great volume I shorted it a star because of the Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover stuff making it kind of confusing and leaving some parts of the story feeling disjointed No fault of Moore s, of course, and it doesn t hurt the superb storytelling overall, but it did take me out of it for a couple of pages without really explaining why, so that wasn t great That said, it did set up a fantastic end to the volume, so at the end of the day it s all good.

  28. Paul Fagan

    Damn, what an epic series of stories this was I was feeling in Volume 3 that the Swamp Thing s stories were getting a little episodic and repetitive In fact, those were the first half of his American Gothic series This volume contains the last of the episodic stories a particularly good one and then brings them all together in a mind blowing way.Only Alan Moore can use monster stories to illustrate philosophies about the root of good and evil, and damn does he do it well

  29. Darth

    The Posse of Trees This one was real cool and the whole story line with the cult and ancient evil and paranormal abilities was right up my alley I really love how Swamp comes to understand and hone his powers The whole scene where he goes into the darkness and comes out again was pretty profound and well executed
