Swamp Thing, Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing by Alan Moore

Into the Wild

Read Swamp Thing, Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing Online Free - Before WATCHMEN, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. comic book industry with the revitalization of the horror comic book THE SWAMP THING. His deconstruction of the classic monster stretched the creative boundaries of the medium and became one of the most spectacular series in comic book history.

With modern-day issues explored against a backdrop of horror, SWAMP THING's stories became commentaries on environmental, political and social issues, unflinching in their relevance. SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING Book One collects issues #20-27 of this seminal series including the never-before-reprinted SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #20, where Moore takes over as writer and concludes the previous storyline.

Book One begins with the story "The Anatomy Lesson," a haunting origin story that reshapes SWAMP THING mythology with terrifying revelations that begin a journey of discovery and adventure that will take him across the stars and beyond.

When I was a kid, I didn't read comics. This is a little strange, as I loved picture books. And I loved reading. Even so, I'd just never gotten into it. But back when I was 10 or 11, I was in a convenience store with my mom. I saw a rack of comics and thought to myself, "Maybe I could buy one. Ma...

There is a red and angry world. Red things happen there. The world eats your wife. And eats your friends. It eats all the things that make you human. And it turns you into a monster. As a youth I didn’t get Swamp Thing. And reading this as an adult it’s rather easy to see why. Before I get into any det...

Here Moore laid down a marker in the history of comics, ominous and unlikely as Archduke Ferdinand's tomb. Reading through the new wave of British authors who helped to reconceptialize the genre for us poor Americans, one understands more and more why it had to be this man. There is a flair among...

I know this is a beloved book and so, so many people adore this and everything else Alan Moore wrote, especially in the 80s, and that all kinds of superlatives are thrown around when discussing Swamp Thing – and I’m not being contrarian when I say this isn’t all that and a bag of chips, either. P...

I am meat. A beast of blood Who tramples Creatures of chlorophyll. I am violence. A rage machine Who murders From birth to death. I am delusion. An equivocator Who justifies The lives he ends. I am hubris. A believer in me Who knows that Else-life is mine. I am man. I am a man. I am hu-man. I am meat.

I'm slightly biased in favor of Swamp Thing in general since reading Snyder's work, and I'm willing to let some other things slide because this is still Alan Moore of Watchmen and V for Vendetta as he's first gaining his fame in the early 80's, so even when I'm juggling all this in my mind, where...

This made me question if I should have gotten my Watchmen tattoo, because it made me realize that there are comics out there that I haven't read yet that have the potential to be just as good if not better than Watchmen, and this is one of those. Then I remembered that Alan Moore wrote both Watch...

Alan Moore's impact on the pop-culture landscape is apparent, though I personally feel like his writing can sometimes be a bit dry or esoteric (and I'm looking at you V for Vendetta). But GODDAMN this book had some of the finest writing I've ever come across. Poetic and terrifying and hypnotic an...

The best part of this Saga is the hype that surrounds it and invites the reader into the swamp. It is supposed to be Moore's first real foray, it is supposed to be an environmental hyper-roar. Of course, in the end it turns out that most of the stuff is just trippy. The introductory pages were qu...
