He has become a modern legend, this mysterious creature of the Louisiana bayou. Feared as a monster, hailed as a god, by turns wonderfully benevolent and pitiless in his wrath, the Swamp Thing has carved his unique niche in the American Landscape. Writer Len Wein and legendary horror artist Bernie Wrightson, the original creators of the most complex creature in comics, brought the 'Swamp Thing' to life in an 8-page story from House of secrets #92. Now that classic story, plus the first ten issues of SWAMP THING Volume One, are reprinted in a new edition of Swamp thing - Dark genesis. In 'Dark genesis', learn the astonishing secret of Swamp Thing's "birth"; share the forbidden passions of Anton Arcane and the measureless sorrow of the Patchwork Man; shiver to the timeless horror of the witch named Rebecca Ravenwind and of a tortured Scottish werewolf. These eleven stories are not merely acknowledged classics of the comics field; they are an incredible reading experience, and the ideal introduction to the many-faceted creature known as Swamp Thing.

Following on from Alan Moore's extraordinary and influential run on the series, his longtime collaborator Rick Veitch took up the reins and created Swamp Thing: Regenesis - a masterful and controversial epilogue to Moore's work. Swamp Thing has returned from his exile in deep space, only to discover a new elemental creature is blooming, and throwing the natural order into chaos. To maintain his supremacy he must destroy the usurper, but in doing so, risk the destruction of nature itself. With Swamp Thing's popularity soaring once more, this is an ideal segue between Alan Moore's classic series and the new Swamp Thing: Bad Seed (all available from Titan).

Created out of the Swamp by a freak accident, Swamp Thing is an elemental creature who uses the forces of nature and wisdom of the plant kingdom to fight the polluted world's self-destruction. Alan Moore took the Swamp Thing to new heights in the 1980s with his unique narrative approach. His provocative and groundbreaking writing, combined with masterly artwork by some of the medium's top artists, made SWAMP THING one of the great comics of the late twentieth century. In this second collection, The Swamp Thing says goodbye to the illusion of his own humanity after learning that he is 100% plant, meets a crew of benevolent alien invaders inspired by the classic comic strip Pogo (also set in the swamp), and consummates his relationship with Abigail Arcane as only he could. Collects SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING #28-34 and SWAMP THING ANNUAL #2.

Scott McCloud tore down the wall between high and low culture in 1993 with Understanding Comics, a massive comic book about comics, linking the medium to such diverse fields as media theory, movie criticism, and web design. In Reinventing Comics, McCloud took this to the next level, charting twelve different revolutions in how comics are generated, read, and perceived today. Now, in Making Comics, McCloud focuses his analysis on the art form itself, exploring the creation of comics, from the broadest principles to the sharpest details (like how to accentuate a character's facial muscles in order to form the emotion of disgust rather than the emotion of surprise.) And he does all of it in his inimitable voice and through his cartoon stand–in narrator, mixing dry humor and legitimate instruction. McCloud shows his reader how to master the human condition through word and image in a brilliantly minimalistic way. Comic book devotees as well as the most uninitiated will marvel at this journey into a once–underappreciated art form.

As the Swamp Thing tries to get on with his life, a mysterious woman named Anna hopes to get on with her death. A writer by trade, Anna longs to drown her sorrows in a watery grave. But her brilliant stories won't let her rest until she finishes telling them-and the Swamp Thing is their missing masterpiece. Now the avatar of the Green must ride its currents into a series of strange new worlds-warped realities that exist nowhere except in Anna's troubled mind: a New Orleans where the dead walk and black magic rules; an America that lost World War II and is reborn as a republic of horror; and a swamp where a former superhero learns a terrible secret. Waiting at the end of this river of stories is a force that could drown the Swamp Thing-and the world-in a final flood of darkness. Comics superstar Mark Millar and a parliament of comics' finest artists-including Phil Hester, Kim DeMulder, Chris Weston, Jill Thompson and Phil Jimenez-present SWAMP THING: DARKER GENESIS, a tour de force of imaginative power collecting issues #151-160 of the original VERTIGO series.
