From 1983 through 1987, a young British writer named Alan Moore revolutionized the American comic book. His groundbreaking tenure on DC Comics' SWAMP THING set new standards for graphic storytelling and touched off a revolution in the medium that is still expanding today. Building on the title's framework of gothic horror with a remarkably intuitive narrative style and an unprecedented depth of characterization, Moore's vision was realized through the hauntingly beautiful artwork of such collaborators as Stephen Bissette, John Totleben, Dan Day and Rick Veitch. The result is one of comics' most enduring masterpieces. Now, for the first time, Moore's entire run — including his never-before-reprinted debut issue — is available in archival hardcover editions. This first volume, collecting issues 20-27 of THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING, also features a foreword by famed horror author Ramsey Campbell and a new introduction by Swamp Thing co-creator and original series editor Len Wein.

Myth, art, literature, film, and other discourses are replete with depictions of evil plants, salvific plants, and human-plant hybrids. In various ways, these representations intersect with “deep-rooted” insecurities about the place of human beings in the natural world, the relative viability of animalian motility and heterotrophy as evolutionary strategies, as well as the identity of organic life as such. Plants surprise us by combining the appearance of harmlessness and familiarity with an underlying strangeness. The otherness of vegetal life poses a challenge to our ethical, philosophical, and existential categories and tests the limits of human empathy and imagination. At the same time, the resilience of plants, their adaptability, and their integration with their habitat are a perennial source of inspiration and wisdom. Plants and Literature: Essays in Critical Plant Studies examines the manner in which literary texts and other cultural products express our multifaceted relationship with the vegetable kingdom. The range of perspectives brought to bear on the subject of plant life by the various authors and critics represented in this volume comprise a novel vision of ecological interdependence and stimulate a revitalized sensitivity to the relationships we share with our photosynthetic brethren. Randy Laist is Associate Professor of English at Goodwin College. He is the author of Technology and Postmodern Subjectivity in Don DeLillo’s Novels and the editor of Looking for Lost: Critical Essays on the Enigmatic Series. He has also published dozens of articles on literature, film, and pedagogy.

The Parliament of Trees made him the master of all plants. The Parliament of Stones gave him control of the earth on which they grow. And the Parliament of Waves put the waters of the world at his command. With all of this power flowing through his veins, the elemental being known as the Swamp Thing has become like unto a god. And, just like many of the gods that preceded him, he has grown wrathful in his judgment of mankindÕs sins. Now, as he undergoes a final, terrifying trial in the purifying fire of the Parliament of Flames, the creature who was once Alec Holland holds the future of humanity in his cold, mossy hands. And while the Swamp ThingÕs ties to his human side continue to weaken, dark forces are maneuvering to claim his power for their own. In the end, enemies and allies alike-including his estranged wife Abby and the master magician John Constantine-must make a last-ditch appeal to the man within the monster. If they fail, the choice is stark: kill the Swamp Thing before he completes his trial, or perish along with the rest of Homo sapiens. In SWAMP THING: TRIAL BY FIRE, comics superstar Mark Millar concludes his triumphant run on the legendary VERTIGO series with a powerhouse performance illuminated by art from Phil Hester, Kim DeMulder and Curt Swan. Collects issues #161-171.
