    The Swamp Thing won 2021 by getting an extended life of six additional issue for a "season two in 2022.

    While Ram V's writing drives this series, Mike Perkins' art is the special sauce that makes it so memorable. In other hands, the new being that emerges at the end could have been nothing unique, but Perkins infuses her with a unique sense of the unknown that makes for the perfect cliffhanger.

    The Swamp Thing #12's script is a little crowded and heavy-handed. V doesn't leave much information for the reader to piece together in this chapter. But the ideas presented in this issue, and the accompanying visuals, are as stunning as ever. Perkins, Spicer, and Bidikar create a beautifully detailed world that it's hard not to get lost in.

    Bits and Pieces: The Swamp Thing #12 takes the exciting developments and momentum from issue #11 and grinds almost to a dead stop. Ram V seems intent on turning everything that has impacted life and society into a force with its own avatar, and it's presented here with all the energy and drama of a sleeping kitten. Unfortunately, while those developments might lead to a new rogue's gallery for Swamp Thing in the future, it's difficult to care when the story is too dull to keep you interested. Read Full Review
