Description de l'ouvrage

29 juin 2010
Continuing the hardcover collections of Alan Moore's award-winning run on THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING, this third volume is brimming with visceral horrors including underwater vampires, a werewolf with an unusual curse, the hideous madman called Nukeface. Best of all, this volume features the comics debut of John Constantine, Hellblazer, who launches Swamp Thing on a voyage of self-discovery that will take him from the darkest corners of America to the roots of his own long-hidden heritage.

Ce tome fait suite à Saga of the Swamp Thing 2 et il comprend les épisodes 35 à 42.

Épisode 35 & 36 (illustrations de S. Bissette et J. Totleben) - Un être étrange se promène aux alentours du marais de Swamp Thing ; il raconte son histoire à un homme mis à la porte par sa logeuse. Un couple vient s'installer en Louisiane dans une ville proche du même marais. Les journaux sont pleins d'articles sur des abandons illégaux de déchets nucléaires. Alan Moore développe un récit à plusieurs voix en se servant de l'être étrange, de Swamp Thing, d'Abby, du couple nouvellement installé et de nombreuses coupures de journaux balayés par le vent. Il utilise tous les codes des récits d'horreur pour raconter une histoire sur le danger des déchets nucléaires dans une société libérale. Le récit est parfois un peu gauche parce que certains personnages n'existent que pour provoquer une réaction émotionnelle du lecteur et les ficelles sont un peu grosses. Par contre Moore se moque gentiment de son héros qui est mis à terre à la fin du premier épisode. Au final, c'est Abby qui devra lui raconter comment l'histoire s'est terminée. Bissette et Totleben ont franchi un nouveau palier : ils ont abandonné les codes habituels des comics de superhéros pour laisser s'exprimer leurs influences. Bissette s'inspire librement de sa connaissance éclairée des films d'horreurs.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 If you bought the first two, I bet you are going to like this one too... 24 août 2010
Par Raul Vito - Publié sur
This third volume of Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run not only has the first appearance of one of my favorite comic book characters (John Constantine)it really set up the bases of what would some years later become DC's Vertigo line. This volume contains issues 35-42 and has some pretty innovative tales with Swampy taking on some classic monsters like vampires and werewolves, from a totally unexpected perspective, and while there's some stories that betray their eighties origin (Nukeface) and the first two volumes are better overall, an above average Alan Moore Swamp Thing storyline is better than 95% what's being published today (even from the current Alan Moore) Furthermore, the introduction Constantine gives Swamp Thing a guide on a journey which will take him to confront his origins with the Parliament of Trees and the pinnacle of Moore's run with the brilliant confrontation with the Brujeria on the next volume.
From here on out Swamp Thing would still interact with mainstream DC characters (especially in the next two volumes) but Moore's sophisticated take on superheroes and mature storylines would lead him to smash the superhero stereotype wide open with Watchmen, and give birth (along with Neil Gaiman's Sandman) to Vertigo.
This volume maintains the same slick style dust jacket of the second book, instead of the wax paper presentation from the first book (and the same plain engraving on the board cover instead of the haunting image from book one) overall its has pretty much the same presentation. The paper is still not the high grade quality from the Absolute editions, but at least in Amazon you get a pretty good price, only a couple of buck higher than the standard soft cover versions, so it's a pretty sweet deal.
I can't wait to have all six volumes line up in my bookshelf!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A treat for old and new fans of Alan Moore and Swamp Thing 26 janvier 2011
Par - Publié sur
Containing Saga of the Swamp Thing issues 35 through 42 from 1985, including infamous and still-chilling stories dealing with nuclear waste, vampires, werewolves, and racism, this is horror at its most meaningful and its deepest. Alan Moore's scripts still stand out as gems of pace, characterization, and tone.

These eight stories have been reviewed time and time again over the last 25 years, so let me concentrate here on presentation, which is excellent. The hardcover is very well made with a simple yet striking cover. The paper quality is good but not super-white like the original trade paperback reprints, doing justice to both the line art and Tatjana Wood's colors, which still put most modern comics to shame. All told, these tales probably never looked better, not even in their original publications.

The volume opens with a brand-new introduction by artist Stephen Bissette that provides some context behind the stories and history of their publication. Possibly for the first time, this essay allows us to understand that many of the ideas in this book came not only from Alan Moore but from Bissette and collaborator John Totleben. Bissette also puts some of these stories into their historical context, especially the "Nukeface Papers" serial, which was inspired in part by the accident at the Three Mile Island nuclear power plant just six years earlier.

If you've never read Moore's Swamp Thing stories before, you're in for a treat. If you have read them, this is definitely the edition to revisit. Well worth the $25 cover price. Look for Volume 4 in February.

Is hard to write a review for Alan Moore's run on swamp thing, this is a ground breaking masterpiece. But perhaps is best to say why isn't an absolute edition out? Because of the recycling paper this edition sports? This run is far superior to watchmen (it should get an absolute) if your a Moore fan this should be in your collection. There's so many well thought moments in this run that is safe to say that no one has ever come close to igniting so much passion and so much character into this book, ever again. My only complain is how the color looks, it doesn't look like is been remastered although it looks better than the previous collection (the new digital dowload looks way better). Except for that, the hardcover is great. I suggest that you get them all, for is such a powerhouse of story telling, it has moments of joy, action, and sadness, that after you read the run, it will grow in your mind because it will plant a seed of wonder in your brain I will never forget the saga of the swamp thing and neither will you.

In book 3 of his Swamp Thing tales, Alan Moore's Swamp Thing run shifts gears thanks to the introduction of a new superpower. Learning that he has the ability to regrow his body, combined with his already known ability to move his conscious to any plant in the world, Swamp Thing goes on a journey to locations in the US of a certain interest. And it was bloody awesome.

This part of the run also does some good things with side characters. I never liked Abby that much in the first two volumes, where she never grew behind a generic love interest. But here she finally starts getting her own lines and activities to make her interesting in her own right. And while I miss Etrigan, we finally get to meet John Constantine, in all his glory.

My only issue was that the comic ran out in what seems like the middle of the story, and not on a real cliffhanger either. Oh well, still 5 stars.

This third installment of Moore's brilliant run on Swamp Thing introduces one of the most beloved Vertigo characters John Constantine.Having perfectly set up the tone of the series in the first two volumes,Moore is hitting on all cylinders here.The intensity of Swamp thing and Abby's relationship is slightly set aside in favour of more action packed stories revolving around Swamp Thing's self-discovery, triggered by the appearance of misterious British stranger, Constantine who uses Swampy's curiosity about his own nature to guide him and employ him to deal with horrors that J.C. is concerned with for vague reasons.As Constantine leads Swampy on his own path of discovery, Moore slowly unravels the story to the readers.Each issue being shrouded in dreadful mystery, it is almost impossible to put the book down.

This is highly recommended if you are a fan of great series of graphic novels such as Sandman, Preacher or Watchmen.The testament to the quality of these comics collected in this volume is the fact that they still remain fresh and better written than 99 percent of titles out there.

The artwork is also outstanding. especially given the year these books were originally released in.You are bound to thoroughly enjoy this one.
