Broken and untethered from the Green, the Swamp Thing is on the run and being hunted by the Suicide Squad, deep in the forests of Kaziranga. Having learned about the true nature of the Green, Levi Kamei knows that if he is to make it out alive and regain his powers, he must choose to embrace the memory of the events that made him the new avatar of the Green-no matter how painful. But time is running out, and Levi must make his choice, as an old nightmare now stalks his steps.

    With three issues to go the creative team have finally shown us Levi's origin and what triggered the link with the green, I already know that I won't be satisfied with this and will want more issues and tales from V, Perkins and Spicer. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Sep 7, 2021

    If you're picking up The Swamp Thing #7, it's clear you're not going anywhere. Somewhat surprisingly, this issue is also not a bad place for a new reader to jump on. If you weren't sure about The Swamp Thing, this issue does a good job of recapping where things are while also giving an interesting look at Levi's character. Of course you should go back and get all the issues, but this isn't a bad place to jump in to one DC"s best series. Read Full Review

    While the final splash delivers an excellent cliffhanger, it also feels overdue after two issues of jungle encounters between these entities. However, the ideas and images are crystalline and remain a pleasure to see articulated across each page. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Sep 7, 2021

    Swamp Thing #7 is a little bit good and a little bit bad. After 7 issues (and $28) we finally get some insight into Levi's personality, only to discover he's a very smart idiot. After the weirdly misplaced myth his father uses to make a point, the apple must not fall far from the tree. The art is solid, the pacing is excellent, but to be this far into a 10-issue arc with such a lopsided story is a waste. Read Full Review
