    "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."

    "This is actually a very cool sci-fi type of book for me. I like the superhero/comic book reads so this peaked my interest almost instantly. The setting and the story is pretty good and I will continue to read on with this one."

    "I bought this one for my nephew and now he’s a Superman nut. He’s not a fan of the dark movies but he loves these graphic novels though. It’s a good thing for me. Now I have a huge selection to choose from for future gifts. I think I’m spoiling him though by buying him one every month."

    "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. "
