    ‘The Swamp Thing' #6 is another beautiful and bountiful issue that offers up rich language and narrative and equally rich artwork too from Ram V, Mike Perkins and Mike Spicer. An exotic, existential read only spoiled by the arrival of the crass violence of Suicide Squad. Read Full Review

    DC Comics'THE SWAMP THINGis as divided as its hero. It is simultaneously a story about small familial moments and big world-ending ones. Luckily, this creative team is brilliant enough to make both extremes shine. Read Full Review

    Ram V always manages to surprise, and it's impressive how much common DNA there is between this DC comic and his metaphysical indie book The Many Deaths of Laila Starr. Both are about understanding the human experience through the perspective of a god"be it a beautiful god of death or a terrifying god of the Green. Read Full Review

    Mike Perkins does amazing work with the art in this issue. The art is as compelling as the story and Mike Spicer's colors give the backgrounds a lush feel that complements the artistic details. Read Full Review

    If you thought they would falter on the back half of this series, you were wrong. The Swamp Thing #6 is another amazing issue that is not only beautiful, but thoughtful and touching. I'm running out of superlatives, finish the series already so it can be enshrined alongside other Swamp Thing classics. It will be a shame when this series ends, so enjoy it now! Read Full Review

    Ram V uses memory to revitalise, showing that we are more when we connect to our strongest memories. He manages to minimise the disruption the PR push for SS does in the issue but next issue I'll be glad when we cast these aside for more character development from Levi. The two Mikes mix horror with amazingly detailed artwork and colouring. Let's get this next crossover issue finished and get back to the three remaining issues to close off this amazing story arc.

    The Swamp Thing is embracing its horror roots in issue #6 and I only expect the creeping poignancy of this series to grow as Levi attempts to protect a rare thing worth saving. Read Full Review

    The first part of Swamp Thing's encounter with Task Force X doesn't go at all how you'd expect, as the series takes this opportunity to further flesh out its lead character (literally). Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Aug 3, 2021

    Swamp Thing #6 is taking the concept of a slow burn and a decompressed story to an unpleasant extreme. Half this issue is dedicated to the Suicide Squad acting like buffoons, and the little bit of Levi's backstory we've been waiting for since issue #1 barely fills in a single puzzle piece.
