First Lines of Alan Moore's "The Saga of the Swamp Thing"

"It's raining in Washington tonight. Plump, warm summer rain that covers the sidewalks with leopard spots. Downtown, elderly ladies carry their houseplants out to set them on the fire escapes, as if they were infirm relatives or boy kings."
- Alan Moore, The Saga of the Swamp Thing #21.

Big Alan Moore fan here, but for some reason i've never read his classic run on Swamp Thing. I rectified some of that by plowing through The Saga of the Swamp Thing Book 1 yesterday. Great stuff. I'll be posting my thoughts on it and some of the other graphic novels I read in late 2013 shortly.
