Sidewalks and Wilderness: A Naturalists's Notes


Alan Moore, Watchmen and Swamp Thing

I’m currently re-reading The Watchmen graphic novel in anticipation of the upcoming movie. In reading the sequence on the blue Dr. Manhattan’s sojourn on Mars, fabricating a place for himself, I couldn’t help but notice the parallels with Moore’s earlier Swamp Thing episode, My Blue Heaven, in which a blue Swamp Thing fabricates and populates a blue world to keep himself occupied. Has anyone else noted the similarity and has Moore ever referred to this theme in interviews or essays?
