SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING Book 4 is now available in hardcover. This gorgeous volume includes a Foreword, originally written in 1988, by Neil Gaiman about this historic "American Gothic" storyline. And here it is, a blast from the past:
“If you like SANDMAN check out SWAMP THING where gothic comics began.” —GQ “Drawn in the style of a '70s slasher flick, Swamp Thing is a surreal discourse on the blurry line between man and monster, with a strong dose of mystical environmentalism. . . . Swamp Thing is a horror comic, but it's also a late-century incarnation of the idea of the noble savage, straight out of Dryden or Rousseau — only made of roots, twigs and swamp muck.” –NPR.org/Books We Like Cover from Annual 2:
