This book is what you'd expect from Alan Moore. The first story arc is great with Swamp Thing facing off against the Floronic Man. The second story arc went more into horror, and perhaps some more esoteric citizens of the DC universe.

The book gives a nice recap of what happened in earlier issues, since Moore takes over on issue 21. This is very helpful, and much appreciated. Looking at this book, I also realized the advances in printing over 30 years. While the art is good, the resolution is so much less than in the comics of today. It is interesting to think how the artists worked with the technological limitations.
