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
“Hyperintelligent, emotionally potent, and, yes, fun. Grade A” —ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
“Perhaps the first postmodern comic-book hero. . . . Unlike anything else in the Western artistic and literary tradition. . . .” –SALON.com
Collected for the first time in hard cover, SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING Book 2 (on sale this Wednesday, November 25, 2009 in comic book stores and December 1, 2009 in book stores) collects issues #28-34 and SWAMP THING ANNUAL #2 with art by Stephen Bissette, John Totleben, Shawn McManus, Rick Veitch, Alfredo Alcala, Ron Randall and Bernie Wrightson.
It also includes the previously published introduction by Jamie Delano (author of the upcoming graphic novel HELLBLAZER: PANDEMONIUM with art by Jock, coming in February 2010 from Vertigo). Read it here:
