About the Author:

Rick Veitch is a writer and artist whose work includes Brat Pack, Cerebus, Sergeant Rock, Maximortals and, with Alan Moore, Swamp Thing. Alfredo Alcala is a veteran comics artists. He has worked on a vast array of titles including Weird War Tales, Tarzan, Kong the Untamed, Savage Sword of Conan and Planet of the Apes. John Totleben has drawn for such titles as Sandman, Miracleman and Heavy Metal.

From Booklist:

When Alan Moore relinquished writing Swamp Thing in 1987 after transforming it from a third-rate horror comic into a wildly imaginative, hugely influential title, he left impossibly huge shoes to fill. Artist Veitch assumed the scripting duties and, remarkably enough, maintained the high quality while proceeding in the direction Moore had taken by focusing on ecological themes and spiritual matters. The stories in this collection deal with the search for a human body to host a new earth-elemental that, like Swamp Thing, would have dominion over the planet's plant life. After initial attempts fail--one results in the creation of a deranged version of himself--Swamp Thing devises a solution that requires the unwitting participation of cynical sorcerer John Constantine, whose prominent role in these stories generated a crossover into events in Hellblazer, the comic starring him. The absence of the Hellblazer stories is regrettable, and still these pieces show how much life remained in Swamp Thing, at least for the two years Veitch soldiered on after Moore. Gordon Flagg
