My podcasting cohort, MattB is a pretty big fan of this book. In fact, he chose it as the subject of his review in our very first podcast. At the time, my basic assessment of Scott Snyder's Swamp Thing was that it had not wowed me yet. I dropped Batman - by the same writer - at issue #2 but kept reading Swamp Thing because of it's close relationship with one of my favorite titles, Animal Man. In Animal Man, Buddy Baker and his daughter nicknamed "little wing" are tackling the otherworldly forces of life. In Swamp Thing Alec Holland reluctantly chases down the link connecting the two books together, a young boy named William who is becoming the avatar of "The Rot", ie. the force of death and entropy. So on one side of the fence, fleshly life and it's associated lore are prepping for a war against The Rot. On this side, plant life aka "The Green" is doing the same. These two books mixed together are pretty much a tailor-made concoction designed to quench my thirst for superhero mythos. It's like Bacon Vodka! There's just one exception though. Continue Reading »

New art team on this issue, and the result was gorgeous. The issue is loaded with full-page spreads (and even one two-pager). There are creative layouts and truly captivating visuals throughout this issue. The visual of Alec and Abigail sleeping side-by-side surrounded by the forces of the Rot and the Green is the most beautiful single page that I've seen so far in the New 52. This was primarily a chance to set up future conflicts, but it was all handled some very impressive visuals.
