Before becoming famous for WATCHMEN, writer Alan Moore took a mostly forgotten monster comic and turned it into a brilliant, epic horror story for the ages. SWAMP THING marks his rise to prominence in the field and shows the genius of Moore's writing.

This intense story follows the actions of a person known only as "V," who dons a Guy Fawkes mask as he preaches anarchism and carries out a one-man war with a totalitarian government. But what is right and wrong is hard to say in this complex story that challenges the reader's ideas in a profound way.

Alan Moore turned the superhero universe on its ear with 1986's WATCHMEN. WATCHMEN was a reworking of the comics of the industry's heyday in the 1940s and 1950s, but it was the real world that threatened these characters far more than any super villain. This is one of the biggest and most respected classics in all of comics!
