- Full Description
The roots of one of DC's greatest--and strangest--heroes of all time are collected here in their entirety in this giant-size omnibus. From his first appearance in House Of Secrets from creators Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, the adventures of Swamp Thing have been some of the most epic in DC Universe lore. These stories gave birth to such classic characters as Dr. Anton Arcane, the Un-Men, Abigail Arcane and more! This giant compendium edition collects all the Bronze Age stories featuring Alec Holland's nightmarish alter ego!
Additional contributors: Bruce Jones, Wes Craven, Nestor Redondo, Thomas Yeates, Ernie Chua, Stephen Bissette, John Totleben, Bo Hampton, Tony DeZuniga, Michael Kaluta and others. Len Wein's 1991 introduction kicks the book off. Len Wein just passed away this fall, as did Berni Wrightson earlier this year.
This is one of Wrightson's most special projects--he did an amazing job on the first ten issues, cementing his place in comics history and defining this very weird hero. You can still see influences of Frank Frazetta in his work here! Then Nestor Redondo took over, who is literally the father of Filipino artists and incredibly accomplished in his own right. Although not the fan favorite that Wrightson was , Redondo is simply stunning here and on an equal level of excellence.
Next up we have Ernie Chua, and then Thomas Yeates, renowned for his Tarzan work and now the current artist on the Prince Valiant Sunday Page. What an array of talent! And we haven't even addressed the fine writers!
