    "This is the quintessential Alan Moore story. For most people, this is the one everyone knows when they think of Moore. It's a classic story, and has a lot of twists and turns to keep you on your toes while reading. There's also a movie adaptation that is very well regarded, so if you want to see a visual take on it after the fact you have somewhere to go."

    "I am not a great fan of Swamp Thing, though I loved the cameo in the latest DCAU movie. That said, the storytelling is quite good, and although not his biggest fan, I enjoyed seeing the character fleshed out more than some of the cartoons did."
