    Our hero may be more passive and morose than you'd like, but there's more than enough activity going on around him to keep you highly intrigued. Read Full Review

    IGN - Mike Logsdon Apr 2, 2014

    Jesus Saiz and Javi Pina take on this issue and their work is utterly seamless to the extent that it's impossible to tell where one starts and the other ends. The art is beautiful as usual, and a breeze to follow. Matthew Wilson adds his own colorful spark to this issue, adding interesting flourishes that enhance the story even further. Read Full Review

    Infinite Comix - Daren Taveras Apr 3, 2014

    The main focus of this three-part arc is the removal and eventual rejoining of Alec Holland with his Avatar body. There are little subplots that are building into future conflicts for Swamp Thing. These subplots are arguably more interesting than the main plot and that may detract some readers. The subplots are diverse and unlike the twists that Swamp Thing has had in the past. Despite being innovative, it slows this arc's already latent pacing. For readers that have become accustomed to the fast pace environment of past issues of Swamp Thing, there may be some trouble adjusting to the new flow. But it's undeniable that the story remains fascinating through every turn. Read Full Review

    Nerds Unchained - Connor Frigon Apr 4, 2014

    Javi Pina does the finishes over Saizs pencils for roughly half the book, but it flows pretty seamlessly. Saiz gets to have a bit of fun with a single fight scene involving Capucine, who is a complete badass, and a few sick horror moments. Its a solid book, if unremarkable at times. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Apr 5, 2014

    Swamp Thing #30 works more as a setup for next months finale than a great standalone issue.  It is a slow exposition heavy issue that I'm sure will pay off next month.  However, it's this month and I can't help feel a little disappointed.  However, this shows that even when Soule and Saiz slip a bit, they are still far ahead of what others give us week in and week out.

    Swamp Thing hasn't hit many lulls in its thirty issue run, but this month we see just what a Swamp Thing lull would look like and even still, it's solid comics. Read Full Review

    "Swamp Thing" #30 is a solid, dependable comic. It's fun, it's surprising, and once again there's a great twist at the cliffhanger that promises all sorts of excitement next month. For those reading the Soule and Saiz version of "Swamp Thing," this storyline is a great place to start. Read Full Review
