    You cant miss this issue if youve been following the previous 5. This series has been a wonderful take on Swamp Thing. It has combined the look and tone of the original series from the 70s while maintaining the continuity of the New 52. The series ultimately shows Alec Holland coming to terms with his life as Swamp Thing and that he sees it as a responsibility as well as a burden he must carry, if for no other reason than it allows him to help others. Ultimately, this series serves as a nice introduction to the character for new readers while revisiting themes for the initiated. It stands as a reminder that the supernatural and horror genres are under represented at DC currently. Read Full Review

    A satisfying conclusion to a series that has managed to remind us Swamp Thing is best when the supernatural elements of the DCU are involved. You really shouldn't pass up the opportunity to look at the gorgeous art either. There is one jaw-droppingly disturbing panel after another that horror fans shouldn't miss. If you're at all interested in the macabre, supernatural elements of the DCU, or just really great art don't pass this up! Read Full Review

    This issue was nothing short of a triumph and a fitting finale to what has probably been the best mini-series so far this year. Kelley Jones helps keep the darkest of the DC Universe at their darkest (expect major payoff involving the mystical characters who have appeared thus far) and, if Len Wein wanted this to act as his final Swamp Thing story, he couldn't go out on a higher note.

    If you were looking for the more brooding, navel-gazing Swamp Thing that was the staple of the character's time at Vertigo, well you won't find it here. But you will find a pretty fun Swamp Thing story with all your favorite characters and a little bit drawn from the recent New 52 run, to boot. Still, I would say this miniseries would appeal primarily to the seasoned Swamp Thing fan, who would be familiar with the work of Berni Wrightson, which Kelley Jones clearly seeks to emulate.

    If it sounds like I'm being unduly harsh, it's because I absolutely love the character, and also because this particular creative team had the potential to deliver something truly special, rather than – as it turned out – a beautifully illustrated, ultimately unsatisfying diversion. Dont get me wrong though, this isnt a bad series or a bad issue – by any stretch of the imagination. Its just nowhere near as good as it could, and should, have been. Read Full Review
