Swamp Thing
Swamp Thing
Recommended Reading Order

A creation of Len Wein and Bernie Wightson, the Bronze Age Swamp Thing inspired the minds of many.

Perhaps most importantly, Alan Moore, who revamped the character into one of the most interesting in the history of comics. (And my personal favorite.)

This list contains every appearance of Swamp Thing available in a collected edition. Many of these issues have been collected similarly, but in volumes with different names. HC means hardcover and SC indicates softcover.
