He has become a modern legend, this mysterious creature of the Louisiana bayou. Feared as a monster, hailed as a god, by turns wonderfully benevolent and pitiless in his wrath, the Swamp Thing has carved his unique niche in the American Landscape. Writer Len Wein and legendary horror artist Bernie Wrightson, the original creators of the most complex creature in comics, brought the 'Swamp Thing' to life in an 8-page story from House of secrets #92. Now that classic story, plus the first ten issues of SWAMP THING Volume One, are reprinted in a new edition of Swamp thing - Dark genesis. In 'Dark genesis', learn the astonishing secret of Swamp Thing's "birth"; share the forbidden passions of Anton Arcane and the measureless sorrow of the Patchwork Man; shiver to the timeless horror of the witch named Rebecca Ravenwind and of a tortured Scottish werewolf. These eleven stories are not merely acknowledged classics of the comics field; they are an incredible reading experience, and the ideal introduction to the many-faceted creature known as Swamp Thing.

The massive, multilayered city of Neopolis, built shortly after World War II, was designed as a home for the expanding population of science-heroes, heroines and villains that had ballooned into existence in the previous decade. In 1985 the city accepted jurisdiction by a police force covering many alternate Earths, headquartered on the world known as Grand Central. Our own outpost of this network, Precinct Ten (known affectionately as Top 10), recruits its members from Neopolis and its environs, working much like Earth's other police precincts, with one major exception: Like the citizens of the city, the officers of Top 10 have the abilities needed to deal with Neopolis's exotic denizens. Rookie cop Robyn Slinger, alter ego "Toybox," hits the streets for the first time along with a colorful crew of fellow officers, each having the required training to deal with science-villains and super-crimes, as well as the common misdemeanors of city life. You'll never look at powers, or police work, the same way again! From Alan Moore, the writer of WATCHMEN and V FOR VENDETTA, and artists Gene Ha (JUSTICE LEAGUE) and Zander Cannon (Transformers), the Eisner award-winning series TOP 10 is collected here in its entirety!

As the Swamp Thing tries to get on with his life, a mysterious woman named Anna hopes to get on with her death. A writer by trade, Anna longs to drown her sorrows in a watery grave. But her brilliant stories won't let her rest until she finishes telling them-and the Swamp Thing is their missing masterpiece. Now the avatar of the Green must ride its currents into a series of strange new worlds-warped realities that exist nowhere except in Anna's troubled mind: a New Orleans where the dead walk and black magic rules; an America that lost World War II and is reborn as a republic of horror; and a swamp where a former superhero learns a terrible secret. Waiting at the end of this river of stories is a force that could drown the Swamp Thing-and the world-in a final flood of darkness. Comics superstar Mark Millar and a parliament of comics' finest artists-including Phil Hester, Kim DeMulder, Chris Weston, Jill Thompson and Phil Jimenez-present SWAMP THING: DARKER GENESIS, a tour de force of imaginative power collecting issues #151-160 of the original VERTIGO series.

Widely considered the greatest graphic novel ever written, Alan Moore's dystopian masterpiece Watchmen is now presented in a new hardcover edition with an exclusive slipcase, as a part of DC Modern Classics. In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the cold war is in full effect. Watchmen begins as a murder-mystery, but soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes--Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias--have to test the limits of their convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil. Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created Watchmen and changed the course of comics' history, essentially remaking how popular culture perceived the genre. It's no coincidence that this groundbreaking volume is the first of DC Modern Classics. DC Modern Classics features the most highly regarded graphic novels from the world's foremost authority on graphic literature.
