Swamp Thing (comic book)
When Alan Moore took charge of DC Comics' failing Swamp Thing in the early '80s, the writer revitalized several of the monster series' moribund characters while flipping the bird to the Comics Code. Now Saga of the Swamp Thing Vol. It's the first time issue 20, aptly titled "Loose Ends," has been reprinted, and the mind reels at DC's rationalization for excluding it in the past. But given Moore's tumultuous relationship with the publisher, which includes the writer's refusal to have anything to do with Zack Snyder's looming movie adaptation of his classic Watchmen comics, only the Parliament of Trees probably knows the true story. In any case, "Loose Ends" is here at last, and is a brilliant example of how to resuscitate a corpse.
Swamp Thing's strength comes from the fact that it is like nothing else out there. Our "hero" starts off as a monster, escaping from its captors and questioning its humanity. The creature progresses thrughout the next 40 issues from not understanding what it is to becoming a dominant force of nature, able to transport itself across the globe, through space and even beyond the realm of the living. Swamp Thing became Moore's own creative sandbox. The creature was merely bound by the continuity of the previous 20 issues, leaving Moore free to do as he wished. Moore took advantage of this freedom, placing no limits on the exploration of Swamp Thing's world.
