11 Down, 41 To Go "Saga of the Swamp Thing, Book 1" (52 Books, 52 Weeks)

Saga of the Swamp Thing, Book 1 collects issues #20-27 of DC's Swamp Thing comic, and coincidentally, issue #20 started Alan Moore's writing for the series. I haven't read the earlier issues, but this collection highlights Moore's talents as a writer. Moore took the horror comic genre and reinvented it with this series, from his impressive story arcs to the well-thought out, multi-dimensional characters. Though I am usually drawn to biographical comics, Saga of the Swamp Thing, Book 1 held me rapt while I turned its pages yesterday and finished the book in one sitting.
