I've got to admit, these are my 2 favorite titles of the New 52.

Fantastic story, amazing art, and the fact that they tie together is an added
bonus!

I'm really starting to become a fan of Jeff Lemire. (I also love Sweet Tooth.)

I heard so much good stuff about both titles in the beginning, but never had the time to pick them up. I'm gunning for the trades when (if they're not out already) they come out.

I love Swamp Thing, but it kind of makes me mad that I spent all this time reading this large arc only to have it resolve half heartedly. They essentially ended it and then went "no wait! That wasn't the real bad guy. THIS is the real bad guy and he's more powerful than the other guy you just defeated."

I have really loved the Animal Man series (except for the one filler issue that I found to be far too disappointing). On the
flip-side... Swamp Thing has been only okay for me. Still worth buying, and I guess it's hard to pinpoint the reason for my
mediocre reception of the book. I'm bummed to hear that the Animal Man artist is leaving for another book, though. Hope the
replacement fits the book.

I think the Swamp Thing trade comes out late August, for those who are wondering. Out of the New 52 titles these two series and Aquaman have been among my favorites.

I love both of those series and I am really interested to see what Jeff Lemire
is going to do with Justice League Dark.

Jeff Lemire is a boss. That aside, I haven't read all of Animal Man, but what I have read has been very, very good. It's definitely something I need to catch up with.

Didn't go for Animal Man when the new 52 launched but I picked up the trade and I immensley regret my decision to not include this title in
initial list of titles to get from the new 52.

I started reading Swamp Thing really with the idea that I'd put to rest the notion that anyone could do anything with it after Alan Moore's run, but didn't follow Animal Man, because I've never been a big Animal Man fan. The first arc of Swamp Thing has been surprisingly good, and the Rot makes a better, more sweeping crossover than either of the Batman crossovers. I finally picked up Vol 1 of Animal Man, because everything I kept hearing, and yes, it's also really good, maybe even better than Swamp Thing.
