Product description

This seminal horror series was given a whole new lease of life in the 1980s when a then relatively unknown Alan Moore was brought in to put his unique stamp on it. Collecting "Saga of the Swamp Thing" Numbered 20-27, we go back to the beginning with stories on how the Swamp Thing is the mutant result of a freak scientific experiment, and believes he was once human Alec Holland - but the truth is far more disturbing. Will he ever break free of the restrains of the swamp? This groundbreaking work features genre-defying tales with Moore's unique deconstructing narrative style, which made horror credible again. With art by John Totleben whose unique covers have graced "The Sandman" series.
