Created by a freak accident, the Swamp Thing is an elemental creature who uses the forces of nature and wisdom of the plant kingdom to rail against a polluted world's self-destruction.

Inspired by the 1970s creation of writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson, Alan Moore took the Swamp Thing to new heights in the 1980s with his unique narrative approach. The beginning of the arc, entitled the "Anatomy Lesson", reveals that the title character is in fact not Alec Holland, but a life form thinking that it is. As the story unfolds, Swamp Thing returns to his home, and his run in's with the Floronic Man and a horrifying encounter with comic icon Jack Kirby's Demon, and there's even a cameo from the JLA.

I was disappointed that they didn't go with a higher grade paper for this hardcover volume, something glossy would have been nice. Unfortunately it is the same newspaper-print stock type paper that was used in the paperback.
