The vampire substory was interesting, but the comparison of vampire communities and humans as a parasitic species seemed a little strong. However, the comparison's purpose was to humanize the vampire condition and to set the philosophical stage for Swamp Thing's later dilemma.
The werewolf story might have been my favorite. More seemed to over emphasize how terrible a woman's life is, but it left me sympthizing for her. The Cain/Abel subplot didn't feel important to me.
How wrong I was...
Moore's Swamp Thing has some serious balls to it and really seems to take a rather outrageous backstory and turn it into something that has a story that needs to be told, while getting out some enviro-issues at the same time.
But what's most important here is that Moore turned the Swamp Thing from a monster into a character who is seeking out the truth, and a character who is truly concerned for what is going on around him, while ultimately being absolutely lost to this new world that he has found himself in.
Also...Constantine makes a pretty good appearance in here, which can never be a bad thing.
