    The Swamp Thing #16 marks the end to the latest chapter in the saga of the Swamp Thing with a note of both hope and dread. Another existential adventure comes to a conclusion, but not necessarily a definitive conclusion. This series bows out, much as it was birthed, thought provoking from start to finish.

    The last few Swamp Thing runs have all massively expanded the mythology of the Green and its champion, and Ram V's take is no different. But it also seems to be doing something completely different as we reach this final issuecreating a beautiful, almost lyrical reflection of what it means to represent the Green and the myriad of plant life in the world amid the ever-encroaching presence of humanity and technology.

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 23, 2022

    The Swamp Thing #16 concludes the run with plenty of speeches, ideas, and pontification but halfhearted attempts at resolution. This issue, like the run as a whole, simply collects ideas to tell you sentience is good and greed is bad with nary a thought to justifying the myriad of plot threads that never get addressed. If you love the art, this finale may be worth the cover price. But if you want a story that ends with a little more consideration than a cheap fortune cookie, look elsewhere. Read Full Review
