The green sprouts again in 2011.

Once upon a time, about a year ago, there was a roundtable at the Hooded Utilitarian concerning the seminal Alan Moore-written issues of [The Saga of the] Swamp Thing. I was among the participants, but my eventual contribution was excerpted from an unfinished whole. I also got some feedback indicating gaps in my thinking, which eventually caused the entire massive bulk of it to shift.

So now here's part one (of two) of the expanded, revised piece, suddenly snapping off at the end like an old Heavy Metal serial. More James Caviezel to come.
