review of ‘swamp thing’

From Salon, there’s a good analysis of Alan Moore’s 1st anthologized edition of Swamp Thing from the mid-80s. Just in time for The Watchmen release.

BTW-I’m kind of new to reading Salon, I usually prefer Slate, but their book stuff is some of the strongest out there.

The best: “Long before anyone had started using the pompous term “graphic novel,” long before Moore became the reclusive genius behind “From Hell” and “The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen” and, of course, the about-to-be-a-massive-motion-picture “Watchmen,” came his remarkable mid-’80s run on “Saga of the Swamp Thing,” which redefined both the audience and the narrative possibilities of comic books.”
