Item Biography

Collects Saga of the Swamp Thing #28-34 and Swamp Thing Annual #2.

Includes an introduction by Jamie Delano and a foreword by Neil Gaiman.

*Beneath the earth there are muffled, booming voices.

Beneath the ocean there are terrible lights.

And the ripples widen across America.

Through the very darkest minds.

This is the place.

It breathes. It eats. And, at night, beneath a crawling ground fog with the luster of vaporized pearl, it dreams; dreams while tiny predators stage a nightmare ballet in sharp black grass. It is a living thing. It has a soul. It has a face.

At night you can almost see it.

At night you can almost imagine what it might look like if the swamp were boiled down to its essence, and distilled into corporeal form; if all the muck, all the forgotten muskrat bones, and all the luscious decay would rise up and wade on two legs through the shallows; if the Swamp had a spirit and the spirit walked like a man.

You can stare into those places where the evening has pooled beneath the distant trees, and glimpse an ambiguous shifting of the darkness: something large, large and slow, its movements solemn and inevitable, heavy with clotted, sodden weed that forms its flesh. Its skeleton of tortured root creaks with each funereal pace, protesting at the damp and sullen weight. Within their sockets its eyes float like blood-poppies in puddles of ink.

This is the place.

This is the story. *Source: Dust Jacket

**In this second collection Swamp Thing hardcover, the Earth Elemental says goodbye to the illusion of his own humanity after learning that he is 100 percent plant, meets a crew of benevolent alien invaders inspired by the classic swamp-based comic strip Pogo, and consummates his relationship with Abigail Arcane as only he could. **Source:
