    The Swamp Thing #13 continues the series' trend to unnerve in its ideas and imagery. In a way, the creators have made something that is like walking through a nightmare and a dream all at once, thoroughly entertaining you and letting you escape in its ideas. Swamp Thing is a fever dream you won't want to wake from. Read Full Review
