One of the coolest and definitely one of the most tragic heroes ever created. He's evolved so much over the years from the early years where he was a creature trying to become human again. Then Moore got a hold of him and changed him completely to the character, making him even a bit more human and more tragic. After Moore runs, Veitch, Wheeler, Morrison/Millar, Diggle, Vaughan, Dsyart all got hold of him and they all added something great to the Swamp mythos backed with some solid artists.
So, what are your favorite writers? Artists? Arcs? How did you get into Swampy?
Me, I got a hold of him when I found a Moore issue (I think it was #61) at Half-Price books as a kid (almost teen) and being blown away by it. I bought more and become hooked on the character.
