Swamp Thing, Vol. 3: The Curse - Alan Moore, Stephen R. Bissette, John Totleben John Constantine has his first appearance in this volume, little more than a shadow of what he'd eventually develop into. Here, he's a mysterious figure who shows up unannounced to smirk cryptically at the main characters. Constantine aside, this looks to be the start of a larger overarching story, with the immediate result of giving Swamp Thing a decent power up and continuing the development of his relationship with Abby. I do appreciate that it's being developed episodically, especially since that gives Moore the ability to work on a lot of different concepts in one collection. The werewolf story is particularly arresting in its bleakness.
