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 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.

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.
Swamp Thing, you are amazing... 26. März 2014

Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
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.
A Moore classic worth buying. 9. Dezember 2014

If you have already bought the first four books of this series, then you should definitely keep reading Moore's historic and groundbreaking Swamp Thing run and buy this volume as well. When you take into account the fact that he was writing Watchmen at the same time as he was doing Swamp Thing, you will be even more impressed with the quality of his work.
