Description

Before the groundbreaking graphic novel Watchmen, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. comic book market with the revitalization of the horror comic book Swamp Thing. Moore’s classic, critically acclaimed Swamp Thingstories are now collected with brand-new coloring in Absolute Swamp Thing by Alan Moore Vol. 1.

In 1983, a revolutionary English writer joined a trio of trailblazing American artists to revitalize a longstanding comic book icon. By the time they’d finished their work four years later, Swamp Thing by Alan Moore, Stephen R, Bissette, John Totleben, and Rick Veitch was universally recognized as one of the handful of titles that defined a new era of complexity and depth in modern graphic storytelling, and their run on the series remains one of the medium’s most enduring masterpieces.

Now DC Comics and Vertigo are proud to present an all-new vision of this landmark achievement. Comprising three deluxe hardcover volumes, Absolute Swamp Thing By Alan Moore debuts completely new coloring for every page, crafted exclusively for this definitive collector’s edition by legendary color artist Steve Oliff (Akira, Miracleman). This first volume includes the issues The Saga Of The Swamp Thing #20-34 and Swamp Thing Annual #2 and features a monumental new afterword from Bissette accompanied by a wealth of historic behind-the-scenes material from the title’s original creative team.
