Saga of the Swamp Thing
- Jason Woodrue: You can't kill a vegetable by shooting it in the head.
- Jason Woodrue: He isn't Alec Holland. He never will be Alec Holland. He never was Alec Holland. He's just a ghost. A ghost dressed in weeds.
- There is a house above the world, where the over-people gather.
- There is a man with wings like a bird.
- There is a man who can see across the planet and wring diamonds from its anthracite.
- There is a man who moves so fast that his life is an endless gallery of statues.
- In the house above the world, the over-people gather...
- And sit...
- And listen...
- ...To a dry, mad voice that whispers of Earthdeath.
Love and Death
- There are people. There are stories. The people think they shape the stories, but the reverse is often closer to the truth.
- Cain: Murder? Don't talk to me about murder. I invented murder.
A Murder of Crows
- Swamp Thing: Is there some pattern... that I should perceive...in this senseless pageant... of atrocity...?
- Is there some truth... that may be divined... from the entrails... of America...?
- It seems useless...
- I struggle... to impose a structure... that has meaning... on the madness that churns... within this continent... within this world...
- But tonight... I looked into a man's eyes... and glimpsed the abyss...
- And I fear... that it may... be bottomless....
- I know that there must be an answer... a light in the blackness... but I don't know... if I can find it... on my own.
