Saga of a Swamp Thing was originally a series created by Len Wein and Berni Wrightson.

Alan Moore begins this series with illustrators Steve Vissette and John Totleben. It begins AFTER the swamp thing is created, more precisely after the death of Alec Holland. As per this series, the swamp thing is *not* human, rather still has personality of Alec Holland. The back story has been dispensed in the introduction by Alan Moore.

Bright vibrant colours are the hallmark of the art work. Justice League features very briefly. Also, it was very refreshing to read something from Alan Moore that did not feature a crazy anarchist or a dystopian society. This book is more individualistic.

It was an interesting book, so much that it did make me want to check out how do things pan out for Swamp Thing and his friend from Alec's past life, Mrs. Cable. In this book, however, her husband Matthew Cable's character is just hinted at. I think this is one character that will evolve to his full glory in next books of this series.
