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.

5.0 von 5 Sternen To Gotham And The Stars 15. Februar 2012
Von Jonathan Stover - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.'

4.0 von 5 Sternen Moore is not quite finished with his bag of tricks for Swampy... 17. September 2011
Von Raul Vito - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.
4.0 von 5 Sternen An impressive style shift for the series. 11. Mai 2014
Von James B. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
While the last book in Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run dealt with earth-shattering events, book five slows down a little and deals with the character's relationships. This type of thing can kill the narrative momentum in a lesser story, but this is Alan Moore we're talking about. The way his characters interact, and how society at large reacts to it, are fascinating. You'll love these issues!
5.0 von 5 Sternen Swamp Thing, you are amazing... 26. März 2014
Von Jessie Tipton - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
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.
