Though I'm thrilled to have this era of Swamp Thing v2 is an attractive omnibus, I must admit that I've always considered it the nadir of v2, and that has not changed on a reread.

The biggest problem is that Collins didn't want to write about Moore's Swamp Thing. Certainly, the Veitch and Wheeler eras that bridged between Moore and Collins might not have been as technically strong (though I can't entirely say for sure, as I haven't read them in many years), but they at least followed on from Moor

Before this omnibus was announced, I had no idea Nancy Collins had ever written Swamp Thing. I'm sure her run had its supporters, but it kind of feels like one of those runs that kind of got lost to history, especially when you consider that it has never been collected in any form until now. As a big fan of Swampy, and of Southern Gothic horror, I was excited to see what a genuine Southern horror writer would do with the title, particularly compared to the trippy, lore-obsessed stuff that follow ...more
Read these great comic books one by one when they first came out and was thrilled when the complete collection was compiled! Of course, want to plug my sister, Nancy A Collins, the writer!

Collins' run on the series was a step up from Wheeler only in the sense that she seemed to have a sense of humor where Wheeler's work felt like jokes were a foreign concept to him. Her attempts at doing John Constantine as a character were laughably bad Brit stock phrases lifted from Monty Python, Benny Hill, and other edifying examples of how people from the UK really talk.

There also seemed a weird arc of destruction running through Collins' tenor as she took all the characters and said "fuck y

Underrated. Nancy A. Collins' run on Swamp Thing refocuses the story's sense of place and bayou locality, eschewing the unruly galactic spectacle comic book nonsense that overtook the Wheeler era in favour of something earthier and wyrder. An era defined by a focus on cajun culture, sharp characterisation and progressive politics.

Veitch tried respectably to imitate Moore and then Wheeler felt like a further imitation of an imitation. Those eras had their highlights (the final arc of Wheeler's r

After this, Swamp Thing is officially one of my favorite characters.
I really loved her run on the title, and she was following Alan Moore, which is a tough act to follow, and she did a fantastic job

Such a good collection of stories! I wish Ms. Collins wrote this book longer, because I just wanted to read more!

Swamp Thing by Nancy A. Collins omnibus 🌳

This collects the entire two year run of gothic  horror novelist Nancy A. Collins, and was originally a Vertigo series but is now branded Black Label (go figure) it has never been reprinted before, and i was quite eager to start this one, i was hoping for some classic early 90s horror vibes, and that is what i got. Collins herself hails from Louisiana and that southern vibe lingers through the entire book, the artwork is very decent, and the covers done

The Southern part of Swamp Thing is often either done badly or ignored but Nancy Collins puts Louisianna front an center in this huge selection. There are cross burnings, Southern politics including a David Duke stand in and even an entire issue set during Mardi Gras. The Duke stuff was particularly topical as they were written in 1991 when Duke, a dispicable former klansman and American bottomfeeder, was running for Govoner of Louisianna.
Overall, I liked the art and all the left turns the serie

Collins is the first person who attempts to make Swamp Thing their own, outside the shadow of Alan Moore.

Collin's Swamp Thing is much more grounded and less cosmic. It's more practical horror. Politics and Serial Killers. More tales of the crypt than Parliament of the Trees. It's a nice change of pace, but it's definitely MUCH more subdued.

It's initially the Tefe and Abbie show; but becomes the competing attention Family vs. Duty.

The art is serviceable, and for some like Scott Eaton, even gr

There’s something so satisfying about a comic run that only gets better the further in you go.
Nancy A. Collins starts strong, and continues growing more and more engaging with each new stride.
It was a good time going between some very classic Swamp Thing styled romps, and also expanding on his strenuous connection to the Parliament of trees, and developing relationships with his supporting cast.

Southern. Gothic. Horror. Nothing more needs to be said.

P.S. the art is phenomenal (especially the

A really good read that builds on the world of Swamp Thing in a nice way. I'd actually love to read what happens next if DC has collected the issues after this. ...more
Dragged a bit at parts. Not my favorite swamp thing but still a nice addition to the series.

Excelente cómic con una historia de trasfondo profundamente reflexionando sobre el bien y el mal, pude entender como pensaría un "Dios" acerca de sus poderes, de su deber para con la humanidad y todo esto sin perder la esencia de un hombre que creyó alguna vez ser y que esta enamorado de una mujer. ...more
