The Arrow-verse is fun n' all, but DC should take a cue from Fox's Legion and do a proper Alan Moore era Swamp Thing series.
I recently began re-reading Alan Moore and Stephen Bissette's Saga of the Swamp Thing, after ~10 years. My goodness gracious, the perfection

Some of the guest appearance characters who were in Alan Moore's amazing run on Swamp Thing! 👏👏👏
Len Wein was great and then later Alan Moore! Swamp Thing was treated well!
loved your swamp thing pick for movie fights.Alan Moore's run was magnificent.You might want these.
It makes me sad Mark Ellis didn't know Alan Moore's Swamp Thing- it's really good.
I stuck with SWAMP THING until Wrightson left. Never even looked at Alan Moore's later incarnation.
Issue 60 of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is a tour de force. I also hope there were cosmic, apocalyptic consequences for the DC universe.
Hard to think of a better place to start than Alan Moore's epic Swamp Thing saga.
you guys rock. Picked up complete Hellblazer, Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run, and many more!
I find Swamp Thing to be very relatable and badass. Especially with how Alan Moore and later Scott…
I wonder how much original issues of Alan Moore's run on the Swamp Thing comics would get me I haven't read em in forever
Killing Joke is trendy. Not the best Alan Moore. Should adapt his Swamp Thing run instead.
Looking at the new Animal Man collections over Swamp Thing because lets face it Jamie Delano (of that period)> Alan Moore
bummer. His first appearances in Alan Moore's Swamp Thing in the 80s through Garth Ennis' Hellblazer run = brilliant
"The people think they shape the stories, but the reverse if often closer to the truth." by Alan Moore, Swamp Thing
The Fifteen Book Challenge? Here are the 15 books I simply could not live without: 1. The Holy Bible by God. 2. It by Stephen King. 3. Batman: The Killing Joke by Alan Moore. 4. Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. 5. Skeleton Crew by Stephen King. 6. The Incredible Shrinking Man by Richard Matheson. 7. I Am Legend by Richard Matheson. 8. The Cave Of Time by Edward Packard. 9. Superman: For The Man Who Has Everything by Alan Moore. 10. Swamp Thing: American Gothic by Alan Moore. 11. Night Shift by Stephen King. 12. Scary Stories To Tell In The Dark by Alvin Schwartz. 13. The Little House by Virginia Burton. 14. Adventures in The Twilight Zone by Carol Serling. and finally... 15. The Omnichronia Trilogy by Joshua Carbaugh! Now, most of you have already been tagged, so the one person (...and incidentally the one I couldn't live without) I choose is Maggie Lindvall.
Very cool photo! I really like Alan Moore issue of Swamp Thing where he encounters Batman in Gotham. But no Robin in that issue.
Alan Moore's SWAMP THING, LAND OF LOVE AND DROWNING by Tiphanie Yanique, with an eye on Rothfuss' NAME OF THE WIND.
Speaking of Alan Moore. Once I'm done with my article on the history of Hellblazer I'm hoping to do a piece on his Saga of the Swamp Thing.

Alan Moore is starting to become one of my favorite authors. He wrote the Graphic Novels V for Vendetta, The Watchmen, Swamp Thing, Batman: The Killing Joke and tons of other great comics. He is so twisted and a borderline anarchist.
Key Batman stories "Batman: The Killing Joke". Written by Alan Moore and illustrated by Brian Bollard. Released in 1988. Alan Moore had worked on "Swamp Thing" from 1982 to 1985, turning it from a dying monster comic into one of the most avant-garde comic books of the time (with huge sales). In 1985, he did a one-shot Superman, "For the Man Who Has Everything", in which Superman hallucinates about his heart's desire. In 1986, Moore wrote "Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?", in which Lois Lane relates the events which led to the death of Superman and most of his enemies. With the success of Frank Milleer's "The Dark Knight Returns" and "Batman: Year One", DC Comics wanted Moore to try his hand at Batman as well. The Joker had been introduced to Batman comics in "Batman" (1940), just months after Batman's debut in "Detective Comics" (May 1939). The Joker's origin story was told in "Detective Comics" (February 1951), in which it was revealed that he was a small-time thief known as the Red Hood who w ...
The supposed premise of this amazing blog is to trace the history of a magical war between acclaimed UK comic writer/wizards Alan Moore (Watchmen, V For Vendetta, From *** League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Swamp Thing, Miracleman, The Killing Joke, etc.) and Grant Morrison (Animal Man, Doom Patrol, Invisibles, All-Star Superman, Arkham Asylum, New X-Men, We3, etc.) starting with the publication of their earliest works in the late 1970s. However this isn't a gossip blog chronicling the PR feud of a couple of aging quasi-celebrities. This blog is about the deeper cultural context, the ethics, the meaning of the art, the history of science fiction, and - of course - the obscure minutiae of the 1980s UK comics scene, that made the clash between these two giants of popular art inevitable. This is a must-read for anyone to whom this entire post was not just a bunch of incomprehensible jibber-jabber.
Everyone knows Alan Moore did a run on Swamp Thing, but Brian K Vaughan did a run as well. mmhmm discusses
Alan Moore's SWAMP THING: Vol. 3 came in the mail yesterday. Volume 4 on the way!
Thinking about buying Alan Moore's run of Swamp Thing. How many trade paperback volumes are there for it??
Universal Monster blu ray set and Swamp Thing written by Alan Moore, my fav story of all time, thanks mom and dad. Merry Christmas

And for that matter, Watchmen and Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing fall under DC too.
That "ten influential books" thing that's going around. Seems appropriate, given the nature of this page. In no particular order, and in no way a complete list; just a the first ten spit out by my brain: Fellowship of the Ring - JRR Tolkien Double Whammy - Carl Hiaasen The Anatomy Lesson (Saga of the Swamp Thing - Alan Moore, Stephen Bissette & John Totleben The Moon is a Harsh Mistress - Robert A Heinlein Turbulent Mirror - John Briggs & F David Peat Illuminatus! - Robert Shea & Robert Anton Wilson Warlord of Mars - Edgar Rice Burroughs Surely You're Joking, Mr Feynman - Richard Feynman Meetings With Remarkable Men - G.I. Gurdjieff RAW: the Graphics Magazine That Lost Its Faith In Nihilism (pretty much all of volume 1) - edited by Art Speigelman and Francoise Mouly ...now, how about you guys?
Swamp Thing returns from *** only to learn that Abby has fled Gotham City. Read the latest volume from Alan Moore's award-winning run, SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING BOOK 5
that's a good list. Based on that I'd try Alan Moore's Swamp Thing and then some Hellblazer (Ennis' run is a good place to start)
Strongly recommend Swamp Thing as another Alan Moore saga. I wanna read the inspirations before I do The League of
more people need to know and experience the awesome that is Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run.
Finished Len Wein then Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Now starting Hellblazer. Gonna read all of it thanks to a recent sale.
Just started reading Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run. The first issue is really deep and intense. Because Alan Moore.
Swamp Thing! Finished up Alan Moore's classic run and read the first 8 issues of Scott Snyder's New 52 run.

I love my lady.She has turned into a comic geek! Bwah ha ha ! I started her off around 3 years ago with Grant Morrison's BATMAN AND ROBIN series and BATMAN : THE RETURN OF BRUCE WAYNE, then she got into Greg Rucka's BATWOMAN and I made her read Alan Moore's SWAMP THING run, THE BOOKS OF MAGIC and IDENITY CRISIS. Now she loves JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, Animal Man, SWAMP THING, FATALE, REVIVAL, and SAGA ( but really who in the comic reading world does not love SAGA?) ! Did anybody else on this page get their special person into comics?- Wolfman Walt
completely agree. I just started reading Swamp Thing. Did Len Wein's run, now on Alan Moore
I'm thinking trades of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing; I, Vampire and something from Frank Miller. Sin City or Daredevil idk.
Casual fans of Alan Moore's work might not be familiar with his epic '80s run on "Swamp Thing"
Late night readings of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing while listening to Witchcraft and Ratatat. Headphones mandatory..
Slowly but surely making my way through Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run.
Swamp Thing by Alan Moore makes me feel as if I'm reading a poem.
"Stories shape the world. They exist independently of people...The glaciers have their legends." - Saga of the Swamp Thing, (a Graphic Novel written by Alan Moore)
just so you know, my trade bender hasn't ended... I picked up the first three books for Alan Moore's Swamp Thing (cont)
What is your favourite Graphic Novel? I think mine is The Watchmen. But in a tied second is the Alan Moore "Swamp Thing" And the Frank Miller "Batman Returns" As when he says ' You don't get it, boy. This isn't a mudhole... It's an operating table. And I'm the surgeon.'
Friends, I'm trying my best to take my interest in Graphic Novels to heart in a more dedicated way, and I'd love some suggestions for powerful works to read. Any ideas? If you'd like a sense of what I'm interested in, here's a list of some of the things I've read recently (with writers listed, and in basically reverse chronological order).. Fun Home - Allison Bechdel (currently reading this one..) Ghost World - Daniel Clowes Asterios Polyp - David Mazzucchelli Black Hole - Charles Burns Jimmy Corrigan, the Smartest Kid on Earth - Chris Ware Acme Novelty Library - Chris Ware The Sandman - Neil Gaiman et al. (vols. 1-6 and counting) Berlin, vols. 1&2 - Jason Lutes Duncan the Wonder Dog - Adam Hines The Pride of Baghdad - Brian K. Vaughan We3 - Grant Morrison Swamp Thing, vol. 1 - Alan Moore Here are some books I'm planning on reading soon or when I find them: Louis Riel - Chester Brown From *** - Alan Moore more Swamp Thing more Acme Novelty Library Palooka-Ville - Seth
So if I want to start getting in Swamp Thing, should I just start with Alan Moore's run on the series, or should I give the original issues a chance too? I've been reading Snyder's current run on the book and loving it, and feel like I've been missing out (same goes for Animal Man, but I'll leave that for another time).
Reading Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run... Finished the 1st volume now on the 2nd. So good. So, so good.
Started the new year with the end of an era--Spirit Archives vol. 23, the final batch of strips that Eisner worked on, handing the reins basically to Jules Pfeiffer and concentrating on his outside contracts--and the beginning of another: Alan Moore, Stephen Bissette, Rick Veitch and John Totelbein's run on Swamp Thing, with both script and art going places that not only had Swampy never been before, but basically changing the face of adult comics forever. And last night, I finally got to read Chester Burns' Ed the Happy Clown, a story that has intrigued me for 20 years, and one that I'm still ingesting. I doubt that I'll ever achieve story creation that remotely compares to any of those above, but it's all raised the bar for what I hope to achieve as an artist.
"...But the light is not all that we know." -Swamp Thing "Right of Spring", by Alan Moore, S. Bissette & J. Totleben, 1985
Not to mention the great older titles like Alan Moore's Swamp Thing and V for Vendetta and Marv Wolfman's Crisis on Infinite Earths.
Netflix has the 80's Swamp Thing movie based on the comic!! Gonna wait till after I read the Alan Moore books to watch it though.
You mentioned Alan Moore's "Swamp Thing" is one of the 'Top Five' best written comics. What are the other four?
Thanks to I need to reread the entire Alan Moore run of Swamp Thing. Thanks for both ruining, and making awesome, my weekend.
It seems that every movie is a remake of something that was better when it was first released in a foreign language.- Alan Moore,Swamp Thing
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALAN MOORE, I believe Alan Moore to be the best comic book writer of our time. From his work on Swamp Thing, to the V for Vendetta, Watchmen, he even wrote Batman: The Killing Joke!, No one comic book writer has spawned so many great stories in the time that I collected comics. Many agree he is responsible for some of the greatest stories ever written.
I was watching Comic Book Men tonight, and they mentioned Swamp Thing by Alan Moore. It was one of the first comic books my dad bought for my brother and I, on top of Wolverine with Silvestri. Never thought I'd be drawing comic books years later.
Scott's Swamp Thing is the best its been since Alan Moore. Argue if you want, but I'm right!
And the creme de la creme or equally gooey... The Return of Swamp Thing! Bastardization of Alan Moore's comics starring Heather Locklear!
The Saga of Swamp Thing is my new favorite work by Alan Moore, he is literary genius! On a related reading update, Scarlet Letter was really good, The Dead Zone by Stephen King was fantastic, and I rather enjoyed Ender's Game. About to start A Walk In The Woods by Bill Bryson!
Commuting *** but at least I have time to read some Swamp Thing. Nearly finished Alan Moore's run. Amazingly it's living up to the hype.

Maybe the world..has run out of room..for monsters. -Alan Moore, Swamp Thing
It's a new world Arcane.. It's full of shopping malls.. And striplights and software. The dark corners are being pushed back.. A little more everyday. We're things of the shadow you and I.. And there isn't as much shadow.. As there used to be.. Alan Moore, Swamp Thing
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. -Alan Moore, Swamp Thing
really dug Swamp Thing but is there a reason you didn't reference the Alan Moore Swampy? That did still happen right?
Alan Moore was really something awesome! Have you read Scott Snyder's run on Swamp Thing? It's super cool.
also an adaptation of Alan Moore's swamp thing
Where I make the case for a Swamp Thing movie re-boot Less USA Network and more Alan Moore.
I review the first two books of Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing. I don't know why this video is out of sync so please forgive me!
They should make a blu ray multi pack called The Alan Moore Hates These Adaptations of His Work Collection. You could include Watchmen, V for Vendetta and From *** These are still good to great films. Perhaps add in Swamp Thing and League of Extraordinary Gentlemen if you want to spark debate if the Mad English Writer isn't on to something. Tonight From *** it is. Sparked by a short conversation earlier I feel the need for a dark bit of fictionalized history.
What I'm reading: Immortal Iron Fist, Hawkeye, Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. What she's reading: Fables, Watchmen, Saga. Their world is way more entertaining to us.
A DC Promo piece. Alan Moore is interviewed about his ongoing series Swamp Thing. Part 1 of 5.
Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing is the greatest love story ever told.
That just makes it BETTER. Also, if Alan Moore wrote Swamp Thing, I must read it!
Alan Moore's "The Saga of the Swamp Thing" has taught me more about life, death and spiritual communion/horror than I've ever expected. I recommend reading at least the first two volumes. You WILL rethink your life.
My favourite summer horror read is undoubtedly Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run. Unlike most horror, it works best on sunny days
Jack and Coke and Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Not sure how this will end, but the trip will be fun!
Gary Groth's 1987 interview with Alan Moore documents the writer's attitude towards DC after creator protests over a proposed rating system. The Watchmen and Swamp Thing writer explains why he'll no longer work for DC.
“Swamp Thing, in *** "Demon...How...could God...allow such a place? Etrigan: Think you God built this place, wishing man ill and not lusts uncontrolled or swords unsheathed? Not God, my friend. The truth's more hideous still: These halls were carved by men while yet they breathed. God is no parent or policeman grim dispensing treats or punishments to all. Each soul climbs or descends by its own whim. He mourns, but He cannot prevent their fall. We suffer as we choose. Nothing's amiss. All torments are deserved...” ― Alan Moore
No one redefined the comic book landscape quite like Alan Moore in the 1980s, and the year 1985 was one of the most creative of his career. He’d taken Saga of the Swamp Thing to new levels of horror and
Alan Moore is the acclaimed author of such titles as V for Vendetta, Watchmen, Swamp Thing, From *** The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, Promethia, Neonomicon, The Lost Girls, and countless others. His work has revolutionized comics. He is a magician, writer, artist, musician, and a r...
one day I'm going to get that big fat walking dead comic and read it all in one go but no, im reading Alan Moore's Swamp Thing
I could listen to The Police's SYNCHRONICITY II and think about Alan Moore's SWAMP THING all day.
Also: saw your Alan Moore "Swamp Thing" quote. Working on script. In the near future: we've much to discuss
They're now on my to-read pile. I'm still reading through Swamp Thing, but Alan Moore is getting a tad heavy for me ...
Despite critically acclaimed runs from Alan Moore and current scribe Scott Snyder, comics hero Swamp Thing has a history of stinking up the screen. It makes sense then for Toronto hip-hop trio
2 of 5 stars to Swamp Thing, Vol. 6 by Alan Moore
Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is neat because he's like an elemental, or a force of nature
I want a Swamp Thing movie, but WB/DC is having trouble getting anything other than Batman right. And Swamp Thing is way too tricky to just half *** it. Yeah, I'm looking at you, '80s Wes Craven movie that caused the comic to get recreated by Alan Moore into the series I know and love.
Finished all the Swamp Thing Alan Moore ever wrote. Really wish he had put out another 4 or 5 story arc's. In my opinion, Swamp Thing is really his best work.
Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is kind of blowing my mind right now, and I don't mean that sexually...or do I ?
thanks for the tip!! Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is an amazing run btw (regarding your icon)!
an old man was selling vintage comics so I got a 1990 Swamp Thing. The first issue written after Alan Moore
Just because tomorrow is Monday, it doesn't have to be bad. Come in and pick up a Vertigo Graphic Novel, and make it awesome; we really recommend the first volumes of Lucifer, Sandman, Swamp Thing (Alan Moore), Y: The Last Man, Northlanders, and, of course, DMZ.
Really glad to find the complete run of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing on the doorstep this morning. Great to put some birthday cash to good use.
Honestly, Alan Moore's genius as a writer just continues to amaze me. The Watchmen was brilliant, V For Vendetta was quite close to perfect. But if you really want to see the mans true genius, you need to read his run of Swamp Thing. I'm still on the beginning and I'm already in love.
"He's just a Ghost. A Ghost dressed in weeds." - Alan Moore "The Sage of Swamp Thing"
I think Alan Moore kicked off the "everything you know is a lie" aspect with Swamp Thing in the anatomy lesson. Guys keep wanting to do that
I found a quote that would be useful in my paper, except that the source it isn't really what you'd call scholarly: "Is there some pattern that I should perceive in this senseless pageant of atrocity? Is there some truth that may be divined from the entrails of America? It seems useless... I struggle to impose a structure that has meaning on the madness that churns within this continent... within this world."- Swamp Thing (Alan Moore's run, of course)
Alan Moore, the creator of and other great titles such as Hellblazer and Swamp Thing, is a Freemason. He rocks my world.
Re: Alan Moore. I'd like to ask him this:did HE create Swamp Thing, Batman or a bunch of other books he continued from their creators?
So this is gonna be a pretty big night for Marvel yes? That said, I think I'm gonna drop my only DC read right now. Swamp Thing started out pretty good, but its been getting progressively worse and the themes are becoming completely opposed to everything that made Alan Moore's run so great. That's not even counting the cliche story.
Swamp Thing is the best it has been since the Alan Moore days. Beyond great.
My iPad arrived today! Or as I like to call it, The Incredible Machine. Good thing I picked up Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run.
I grew up playing with a Swamp Thing toy. Just found out that Alan Moore redid the series !!! Made my day.
I did get Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing btw and I can confirm it is still great. It is giving me the weirdest dreams though.
Finished catching up on Hellboy, and now I'm trying to finish Alan Moore's Swamp Thing. Spoilers: Hellboy is the rightful king of England, and Swamp Thing is a plant elemental who talks to ghosts. Comics are strange, yet compelling.
Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing is brilliant.
Just finished reading Alan Moore's full run of "Swamp Thing" for the 20th time (or so) :) It gets better each time.
Thank you Alan Moore for devoting an entire issue of Swamp Thing to the title creature having psychedelic pseudo-mind-sex with a human
After reading many different genre's and styles of comics, i keep finding myself drawn back to Swamp Thing by Alan Moore. For some reason that series resonates with me.
Apropos of nothing: This interview with Alan Moore from 1985 re: Swamp Thing is fascinating.
Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is sick. Spoiler: he's not a man turned plant, but a plant turned man!
Well for me, I am reading again Alan Moore's Swamp thing...
Swamp Thing Vol. 1: Saga of the Swamp Thing (Paperback): Before WATCHMEN, Alan Moore made his debut in the U.S. ...
Evening! Thanks for the follow, you had me at Grammar Nazi! Also comics; Batman, Batgirl and Swamp Thing, most things Alan Moore!
Re-reading Alan Moore's run on Swamp Thing. It's aged very well - now reading electronically so no fear of wrecking cherished paper :)
