Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

Alan Moore is perhaps the most acclaimed writer in the graphic story medium, having garnered countless awards for works such as WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, From Hell, Miracleman and SWAMP THING. He is also the mastermind behind the America’s Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP 10. As one of the medium’s most important innovators since the early 1980s, Moore has influenced an entire generation of comics creators, and his work continues to inspire an ever-growing audience. Moore resides in central England.

To Gotham And The Stars 15. Februar 2012
Von Jonathan Stover - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Saga of the Swamp Thing Volume 5: written by Alan Moore, Steve Bissette, Rick Veitch, and John Totleben; illustrated by Rick Veitch, Steve Bissette, John Totleben, and Alfredo Alcala (1986; collected 2011): The penultimate collection of Alan Moore's career-making run on DC's Saga of the Swamp Thing sees Rick Veitch take over as primary penciller. As previous Swamp Thing penciller (and then-continuing cover artist) Steve Bissette notes in the informative introduction, Veitch's interest in science fiction over horror helped shift the book to a more science-fiction-oriented direction. But first Swamp Thing would travel to Gotham City for a fateful encounter with Batman. Then it was off into space for several issues for an odyssey that would conclude in the next volume.

The double-sized issue featuring Swamp Thing's battle with Batman is a doozy, showcasing as it does longtime Swamp Thing inker John Totleben's second full-art stint on the comic book. It's gorgeous: Totleben's art often looked like he was cutting his fine lines into wood or perhaps copper. It's elegant and old-school without being stiff or anachronistic. This was the time of Frank Miller's Dark Knight Returns, so Batman gets a really, really big Batmobile. However, Moore's Batman is much more sympathetic and fallible than Miller's -- and reasonable, in the end, as he and Swamp Thing ultimately resolve their differences without killing each other.

Subsequent issues further develop the character of Swamp Thing's beloved Abigail Cable, reintroduce two horribly transformed characters from Martin Pasko's early 1980's run on Saga, and bring us Swamp Thing's first foray into space travel. One can see Moore straining at the chains of the endless status quo of the mainstream superhero universe here. Things may return to the baseline at the end of each seemingly world-changing event, but logically they shouldn't.

Even if DC wouldn't soon anger Moore and cause him to leave the mainstream forever, one can't really believe, reading these stories, that he would have been much longer satisfied with 'The More Things Change, The More They Stay The Same.'

Moore is not quite finished with his bag of tricks for Swampy... 17. September 2011
Von Raul Vito - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
While I consider that the last volume was the pinnacles of Alan Moore's run in Swamp Thing, this volume (which collects issues 51 to 56) is certainly no slouch. The evolution from swamp monster looking to restore its humanity to all powerful earth elemental it's almost over for Swampy, but still a few great stories are in store in this volume. Certainly one of the most memorable storylines is "The Garden of Earthly Delights" which is still one of my favorite Swamp Thing stories and one of the last that would involve the "normal" DC universe and characters (just loved that Lex Luthor cameo) while drifting more and more towards the Vertigo line. The ending of this volume is "My Blue Heaven" one of Moore's most polished and moving soul searching stories, which would certainly influence another blue colored demigod comic book character looking for its humanity in some of his latter work...
The art chores had mostly been passed over from the Bissete & Totelbein to the new art team of Rich Veicht and Alfedo Alcala (who would continue with a highly underrated run on the title after Moore would leave) and while their level of detail is not as high as the original art team, they certainly were quite good too.
The usual issues with the paper quality and the color reproduction still apply, but don't all the volumes look nice sitting on a shelf...? Still no 5 stars because of that.
All in all, this is as excellent as the rest of Moore's run, and no fan that bought the first volumes will want to miss completing their collection.
Moore still in his best period 13. Dezember 2014

Saga of the Swamp Thing Book Five
Moore continues breaking new ground in this fifth book in the full range of its passage through the title. In this new arc of stories there is a shift of focus, from terror to science fiction, perhaps by Rick Veitch have become the main artist (this was his greatest interest) or perhaps because of the influence of the other jobs that Moore was already starting, as Watchmen and Miracleman.
The first story "Home Free" brings the monster returning from the battle at the gates of hell to find that, in his absence, Abigail was arrested for indecent conduct (she was photographed kissing the creature). Moore took the opportunity to criticize the hypocrisy and American prejudice against the romance between "the differents". Released on bail, Abby escapes to Gotham City and is arrested again. Why Gotham? Because Moore won't miss this chance to write about Batman again.
In "Natural Consequences," a furious Swamp Thing transforms the city of Gotham in a green jungle. Gotham was never so real. Moore enters into its neighborhoods and residents (you can almost smell the alleys) and shows the transformation of the urban landscape in the jungle. As a challenged God, the creature gives an ultimatum to the mayor: release your loved one or the city will be destroyed. Meanwhile many people like the new Gotham and try to turn the city into a primitive eden. They release their clothes and create an alternative community that scares the authorities even more. They summon the old Lex Luthor to stop the creature. Its passage through history is fast, but striking.
Next comes one of the best stories from Swamp Thing (and several of Moore's stories deserve this title), "The Garden of Earthly Delights" where Batman requires the monster to leave his city and enters in a deadly confrontation, but is easily defeated . While the city is falling more and more into green, Batman now struggle to overcome the prejudice of the authorities and release Abby before it's too late. He even manages to get it, but the divinity and immortality of the Swamp Thing apparently knows its end. In this story we have the return of the original artist John Totleben, which increases the quality of the tale.
In The Flowers of Romance we have Abby trying to get over the pain of losing her love and meeting two old characters from her past. Moore took the opportunity to mitigate the impact of previous history and take advantage for another "nudge" in American values: again the question of machismo and the impacts of the war in Vietnam.
The following two stories is that really mark the transition to science fiction. In "Earth to Earth", with a brilliant graphic introduction of space view from earth, it deepens the analysis of the feelings of Abby and the size of her loss. The story ends with a view of earth from the space, where we find the creature reborn on a distant planet.
Finally in "My Blue Heaven", another formal experiment of Moore (all in colorful shades of blue), we have the most radical metaphor of the creator and the creature already done in a comic book. Lost in a lonely planet, the Monster is distracted recreating his beloved and even the city of Hooma. This story had a profound influence on Watchmen and the fate of Dr. Manhattan.
Finish this book brings inevitable sadness. You know that you have only one more volume to end the period of Alan Moore in the title. In retrospect one of the best and most influential works already done in comics.
Swamp Thing is Obliterated 11. Oktober 2015
Von David Swan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
Book Five Covers August 1986 to January 1987

Home Free [art by Rick Veitch and Alfredo Alcala] - Abigail Cable is arrested and charged with "Crimes Against Nature" when photographs come out of her in a romantic embrace with the Swamp Thing. She jumps bail travelling from Louisiana to Gotham City only to be arrested almost immediately and jailed when her identity is noticed by Harvey Bullock. There are Swamp Thing stories that absolutely burned themselves into my psyche thirty years ago. This is not one of them. That is not to say it isn't a great story it's just that humanity comes off so heartless and disgusting that perhaps my young self chose to forget it.

Natural Consequences [art by Rick Veitch and Alfredo Alcala] - Swamp Thing discovers what has happened and travel to Gotham intent in releasing Abby. The story features the return of Dwight Wicker who is on a mission to hunt down Swamp Thing after the moss monster killed his boss, General Sunderland in Alan Moore's first story line. Swamp Thing unleashes a shock and awe campaign against Gotham City attracting the attention of it's resident defender, Batman who sees his entire city covered in vegetation. Wicker even pays Lex Luthor himself one million dollars for ten minutes of his time on order to come up with a plan to destroy Swamp Thing once and for all.

The Garden of Earthly Delights [art by John Totleben] - Swamp Thing has engulfed Gotham City in foliage but the scariest thing to those in power is that an increasing number of Gothamites like it. Batman faces off against Swamp Thing with disastrous results for the Dark Knight. To his credit Batman begins to question who is right between Swamp Thing and the law but when Gotham City digs in its heals in order to not give in to blackmail Swamp Thing begins to demonstrate just how powerful he his become. In the end Luthor succeeds where Batman fails and the Swamp Thing is completely and entirely destroyed.

The Flowers of Romance [art by Rick Veitch and Alfredo Alcala] - We see the return of several more characters that predated Alan Moore's work on Swamp Thing, Liz Tremayne and Dennnis Barclay. Liz is completely paranoid that General Sunderland is still seeking them out for destruction unaware that Sunderland is long since dead. It turns out Dennis is a murderous psychopath who has been isolating Liz entirely for two years. Having been destroyed in the previous issue, Swamp Thing makes no appearance in this story

Earth to Earth [art by Rick Veitch and Alfredo Alcala] - Abby is working to accept the death of her one great love and even attends a touching eulogy. Even the normally omniscient Phantom Stranger sees no evidence of the Swamp Thing's existence on Earth. At the end we discover that Swamp Thing has survived having somehow transferred his essence to another planet.

My Blue Heaven [art by Rick Veitch and Alfredo Alcala] - Oh, what to do when you're the only sentient being on a planet and happen to have God level powers. After weeks of solitude Swamp Thing recreates a small town populated by dozens if not hundreds of automatons including his own dear Abigail. Alan Moore's writing remains peerless but I didn't like this turn in 1987 and I still don't like it. Being able to somehow detach his essence and jump between planets makes Swamp Thing essentially indestructible and being able to create a town effortlessly moves him towards omnipotency. I think back to Swamp Thing fighting vampires and nightmare Monkey King's and now Moore seems to be closing the door on those kind of intimate horror stories. In the end Swamp Thing abandons the blue planet and jumps elsewhere.
Swamp Thing, you are amazing... 26. März 2014

Alan Moore had one of the greatest runs in comic history with Swamp Thing. I would recommend his entire run to any fan of comic books, whether they prefer modern comics or the classics, this is definitely a must-read. This volume in particular was outstanding, from Swamp Thing's run in with Batman in Gotham, to the outstanding "My Blue Heaven" storyline, I really enjoyed it, and read it in one sitting.
