really liked it

Still loving this series. Alan Moore (and the various artists) did an amazing job of preserving the creepiness of the swamp thing but also exploring the weirdness of the universe that he inhabits. I still find the appearance of the super heroes to be very jarring, but it is clear that is intentional. The short "Pog" story featuring the characters from Walt Kelly's Pogo brings this to an extreme. Somehow the whole thing works.

I didn't love the vegetable sex bit. It was a bit too psychedelic for my tastes. It obviously broke new ground at the time, but feels a bit dated. I'm sure it made an impact on the regular readers.
