    Wow ... never been first before ... I'm loving this show more and more! Keep it up Linkara! Uh, I mean Moarte :D

    ... it's a damn shame that the only knowledge I have of Jason Woodrue is from the absolute crapola that was Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin, heh. TO WIKIPEDIA! :D

    Thank you Moarte for bringing back memories
    of the show. hahaha.
    Oh well time to wait for more LOTD. Hmm I wonder what Maven, Todd & a few others are up too. Time to go fine out. WAHAHAHA!!

    A very good review, Moarte! My best friend is a huge fan of The Swamp Thing and I have no doubt she'd adore this comic collection. I'll be sure to tell her all about it, if she hasn't already read it of course. And if so, I may be begging her to let me have a read through ^.^

    I really dig this character, Lewis. Something about this style really speaks to me. Keep it up man, I can't wait to see what you have in store for the rest of the days.
  • Magnaz  - Good episode.
    I wonder if Man-thing is in the Longbox.
    I love how whoever wrote New Guardians thought that using the Floranic Man as a hero was a good idea.

    Finally,some comics I'm fully familiar with. My older brother had most of the old Lein Wein DC comics. I think in one issue Smamp Thing even teamed up with Manbat. But Moore's SOTST and the advent of the Parliament of Trees and The Floronic Man is the real deal. The series took an Arthur Machen/Lovecratian undertone that was really awesome. Hopefully Muerte will cover Hellblazer before October is done.

    BTW,anyone remembers a PSA from late 80s/early 90s in which two kids throw a plastic cup into a lake and Swamp Thing emerges from the lake and tells the kids not to litter. And the two kids non-chalantly tell him "Oh ok,Swamp Thing" instead of running away screaming from the talking plant abomination...

  • jadkni  - I find myself at an impasse...
    I don't have any particular comments or complaints on the video, but Swamp Thing is the one series I really follow and when you're finally covering something I've read I feel obligated to respond.

    I love Swamp Thing, what else can I really say? If you haven't read Saga of the Swamp Thing for some reason, give it a shot. It's more interesting than it sounds. And it's about a talking plant monster fighting (mostly) horrible abominations so it already sounds pretty damn interesting.

    anyone else annoyed with the Romney ads.. had it start 3 times trying to watch this.

    I've never been a big Swamp Thing fan so despite this looking cool.. i'll probably pass.

    This sounds interesting, I'll have to give it a look.

    (Also, I LOLed at the "Wannabe Lorax" quip)

    Ah, The Swamp Thing. Now that's a famous one. I haven't read it yet, but would like to someday. From the video, it seems like it has a lot of twists and turns with a bit of philosophy edged in as well. In other words, it looks really good, but I already knew that.

    I'm going to be sorry to see these end next week. They get better with every episode. Please tell me you're saving Blackest Night for Halloween. Every time I see it in the Longbox I get excited!

    Swamp Thing is awesome, another one of my favorite DC Characters. Alan Moore's run is classic and amazing. Of course my favorite was the American Gothic storyline. You should review that one sometime, maybe next October.

    Swamp Thing always has been really scary character, and I know this without even having read any of the comics. Thanks for giving us a closer look at them.
  • Ericho  - How interesting
    I don't know what the deal with my login status is. For know, I'm just going to say some days I can write comments and some I can't. I had heard of Swamp Thing, but didn't know much about it. I think this is your longest review yet. Yes, I wasn't able to keep up every day. The artwork's pretty good here.
