    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd May 4, 2021

    There are some comic book runs that are nearly perfect. It may seem premature to say that this one of them, but The Swamp Thing #3 indicates the opposite. V, Perkins, Spicer and Aditya seem intent on giving it their best effort to make it one of those all-time "perfect" runs. At the very least, it's one of the best comics being published. It's time to get on board at the beginning if you haven't already. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - James Caudill May 4, 2021

    I cannot recommend Swamp Thing enough. Ram V is getting to play with the Swamp Thing mythos and is doing a fantastic job with it. The art is just stunning from both Perkins and Spicer. I could continue on and on but I want to go read this story again! Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox May 5, 2021

    These stunning individual issues are masterpieces on their own, but the flowing storyline of a reluctant Levi dealing with what happened in India coupled with his relationship with his family and Jennifer slowly draws us forward to a new era in Swamp Thing. With only 7 issues to go how can these two keep up the momentum? This is another 100% flawless read! Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield May 4, 2021

    This isn't a Swamp Thing like any I've read before, and after several iconic runs for the character by elite creators like Snyder and Lemire, that's what the concept needs. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - glimmer0415 May 5, 2021

    Overall, I really enjoyed this issue. Although I had many reservations about this new series, my concerns have diminished, and I feel confident that Ram V. & Mike Perkins will continue to give us a quality Swamp Thing story over the remainder of the series. If you have never read Swamp Thing in the past, but have an interest in the character, I would recommend trying this series and coming along for the ride with Swamp Thing " Levi Kamei.

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 1, 1970

    The Swamp Thing #3 is another fantastic edition of the series. There are still horror elements inside the comic but it has changed from that primal fear that the monster in the previous issues instilled. Now the eldritch influences on the characters within this issue create a feeling that things arent right. The art team constantly makes the reader uncomfortable, but each piece of imagery is gorgeous to look at. Whilst the plot may confuse some during the first reading, it doesnt take away from this comics intoxicating nature that stops you from putting it down. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez May 4, 2021

    Swamp Thing #3 gives you more information about The Green and how the DC plant characters interact with it, but sadly, you get almost no information about Levi or why you should care about him. The art is excellent and there are some interesting moments in this book, but I wish some of those moments had something to do with the main character. Read Full Review
