    The Saga of Swamp Thing last edited by palsunstar on 05/18/23 02:13PM View full history

    This is the second volume of the Swamp Thing. The numbering is continued in Swamp Thing.

    Note: Indicias indicate the title briefly changed to Swamp Thing (volume 2) for issues 39-41, then reverted back to The Saga of Swamp Thing for issues 42-45.


    • The Saga of Swamp Thing Annual #1: Has no ties to the series, comic adaptation of the film released the same year this series was launched.
    • Swamp Thing Annual #2: Directly tied into the series during Alan Moore's run and concludes the story "Love and Death", the annual takes place after #31.

    • Based on the indicia the title of this series is "The Saga of the Swamp Thing" (issues #1-38, 42-45) although the indicia only reads "Swamp Thing" for issues #39-41. This gets even more confusing with the cover title that first reads "The SAGA of the Swamp Thing" (issues #1-30) before switching to "Swamp Thing" (issues #31-45), too.
    • Winner of an Eagle Award for "Favorite Writer" (Alan Moore) and "Favorite Comic Book" in 1984.
