Today's quote

From an essay comparing Frank Miller and Alan Moore in the '80s, a small witticism for comics geeks like me:
Swamp Thing ... is the grandaddy of all Vertigo titles (Sandman is their father and Doom Patrol is their alcoholic uncle).
For those who don't know, Doom Patrol was nominally a superhero book ... but the kind where my favorite character had multiple personality disorder, and where a typical issue might feature a long debate about Cartesian dualism conducted by the villain, a brain in a jar carried around by a trained gorilla.
