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, SWAMP THING and MIRACLEMAN. 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 TEN. 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.

Von Andre Sitter am 21. Februar 2012
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Im dritten Buch dekonstruiert Alan Moore die Mythen der amerikanischen Wohlstandsgesellschaft.Wir erleben die Folgen uneingeschränkten Glaubens an den technischen Fortschritts als Nukeface als dunkler Prophet der Atomgesellschaft auftritt. Wir sehen in einer Abwandlung der Vampirgeschichte die Idylle des Lebens mit einer Kleinfamilie in amerikanischen Vorstädten gefährdet, wir sehen mit Entsetzten die unverarbeitete Geschichte der Stigmatisierung der weibliche Periode und wir beobachten wie in einer sehr düsteren Geschichte wie die dunkle rassistische Vergangenheit der Südstaaten in den Vordergrund tritt. Moore zeigt uns wie brüchig die Zivilisation an sich ist. Hinter ihr wartet das Andere. Jenes was wir gerne ausblenden.

Besonders zu erwähnen ist das erste Auftreten der Figur Jon Constanine in diesen ersten Heften, auch wenn Moores Charakterisierung sehr von den späteren Prägungen der Figur abweicht. Ebenfalls hervorzuheben sind hier die Zeichnungen von Totleben & Co. In vielerlei Hinsicht stellt dieses Buch den Höhepunkt der Swamp Thing Reihe aus künstlerischer Sicht dar. Ob Vampire, die unter Wasser leben, Frauen, die sich in Werwölfe verwandeln oder Menschen, die sich in Atommüll auflösen, all noch so groteskes und abscheuliches ist hervorragend illustriert. Wer die ersten Bände gelesen hat wird mit diesem Band nicht enttäuscht werden.

If you bought the first two, I bet you are going to like this one too... 24. August 2010
Von Raul Vito - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This third volume of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run not only has the first appearance of one of my favorite comic book characters (John Constantine)it really set up the bases of what would some years later become DC's Vertigo line. This volume contains issues 35-42 and has some pretty innovative tales with Swampy taking on some classic monsters like vampires and werewolves, from a totally unexpected perspective, and while there's some stories that betray their eighties origin (Nukeface) and the first two volumes are better overall, an above average Alan Moore Swamp Thing storyline is better than 95% what's being published today (even from the current Alan Moore) Furthermore, the introduction Constantine gives Swamp Thing a guide on a journey which will take him to confront his origins with the Parliament of Trees and the pinnacle of Moore's run with the brilliant confrontation with the Brujeria on the next volume.
From here on out Swamp Thing would still interact with mainstream DC characters (especially in the next two volumes) but Moore's sophisticated take on superheroes and mature storylines would lead him to smash the superhero stereotype wide open with Watchmen, and give birth (along with Neil Gaiman's Sandman) to Vertigo.
This volume maintains the same slick style dust jacket of the second book, instead of the wax paper presentation from the first book (and the same plain engraving on the board cover instead of the haunting image from book one) overall its has pretty much the same presentation. The paper is still not the high grade quality from the Absolute editions, but at least in Amazon you get a pretty good price, only a couple of buck higher than the standard soft cover versions, so it's a pretty sweet deal.
I can't wait to have all six volumes line up in my bookshelf!

A treat for old and new fans of Alan Moore and Swamp Thing 26. Januar 2011
Von GraphicNovelReporter.com - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Containing Saga of the Swamp Thing issues 35 through 42 from 1985, including infamous and still-chilling stories dealing with nuclear waste, vampires, werewolves, and racism, this is horror at its most meaningful and its deepest. Alan Moore's scripts still stand out as gems of pace, characterization, and tone.

These eight stories have been reviewed time and time again over the last 25 years, so let me concentrate here on presentation, which is excellent. The hardcover is very well made with a simple yet striking cover. The paper quality is good but not super-white like the original trade paperback reprints, doing justice to both the line art and Tatjana Wood's colors, which still put most modern comics to shame. All told, these tales probably never looked better, not even in their original publications.

The volume opens with a brand-new introduction by artist Stephen Bissette that provides some context behind the stories and history of their publication. Possibly for the first time, this essay allows us to understand that many of the ideas in this book came not only from Alan Moore but from Bissette and collaborator John Totleben. Bissette also puts some of these stories into their historical context, especially the "Nukeface Papers" serial, which was inspired in part by the accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant just six years earlier.

If you've never read Moore's Swamp Thing stories before, you're in for a treat. If you have read them, this is definitely the edition to revisit. Well worth the $25 cover price. Look for Volume 4 in February.

One of the best 20. Dezember 2010
Von walter boring - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Is hard to write a review for Alan Moore's run on swamp thing, this is a ground breaking masterpiece. But perhaps is best to say why isn't an absolute edition out? Because of the recycling paper this edition sports? This run is far superior to watchmen (it should get an absolute) if your a Moore fan this should be in your collection. There's so many well thought moments in this run that is safe to say that no one has ever come close to igniting so much passion and so much character into this book, ever again. My only complain is how the color looks, it doesn't look like is been remastered although it looks better than the previous collection (the new digital dowload looks way better). Except for that, the hardcover is great. I suggest that you get them all, for is such a powerhouse of story telling, it has moments of joy, action, and sadness, that after you read the run, it will grow in your mind because it will plant a seed of wonder in your brain I will never forget the saga of the swamp thing and neither will you.

more greatness 8. Februar 2013
Von Alabaster Jones - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Like the first two volumes, Saga of the Swamp Thing, Book 3 is must-read material. It starts strong with an utterly bizarre two-parter about an irradiated traveling hobo on a quest to quench his thirst for some rather unusual hooch. Then, as Swamp Thing is discovering an important and incredible new ability, he, and we are introduced to John Constantine, in his comic debut. From there, the saga seems to pick up a lot of steam as a wider plot emerges involving the return of an ancient evil. What follows is a series of stories involving vampires, werewolves, voodoo, and zombies.. but seeing that this is Alan Moore, the subject matter is not treated in a typical fashion. He is very good at examining tired material from interesting philosophical angles, and his treatment of these horror tropes is no exception.

Anyway.. if you've read the first two, it's a given that you're going to want to read this one too. If you haven't read the first two, then trust me.. you're going to want this one handy as soon as you do.
Expanding a conquered territory 7. September 2014

After testing the limits of comics in volume 2, Alan Moore reaps the fruits planted in this volume 3 and starts the "American Gothic" arch, exploring the contradictions of America perception of right and wrong.
In the first story, from a drawing of Steve Bissette of a radioactive man - Nuke Face -, Moore delives a horror story framed by news from newspapers in the wind on disasters at nuclear power plants. Swamp Thing has a supporting role (but terrifying) and begin to understand the extent of his powers.
From the following stories Moore recreates three classic characters of horror stories: vampires, werewolves and zombies. But remember that the writer is Moore, and his vampires looks like punks and lives in a city flooded by a dam and has dreadfull family instincts. The werewolf is here used on a feminist tale, which discusses the subordinate role of women in American society and the zombies history appear to highlight the racial question, and the hypocrisy of its overcoming in the early 80s.
And the appearance of the best creation of Moore, the magician John Constantine, here designed as a copy of the star Sting. And is Constantine that will guide the Swamp Thing in his discovery of the extension of his powers, but been a pain in the ass all the time..
All this in a neat edition, with great recolorization process. A must for those who like Moore or comics.
