Alan Moore’s Swamp Thing

This is still all more humanoid than I would like but does have some interesting details.

In the 80’s Alan Moore took on the moribund Swamp Thing character and created a magical series.  His Swamp Thing is a plant who thinks he is a man.  Since he can’t have sex with his human female lover he grows a fruit on his body for her so they can have a different kind of physical communion.  She eats the fruit and goes on a magical, ecstatic, psychedelic experience with him.  You can see this incredible segment in this compilation, Swamp Thing Vol. 1, Saga of the Swamp Thing
