    ‘The Swamp Thing‘ #8 is another issue that offers up the prerequisite action scenes suitable for such superhero titles, but delivers more thought provoking existential angst too. But, on this occasion, Levi Kami finds some kind of solace in his troubled past. Read Full Review

    BGCP - Michael Lennox Oct 7, 2021

    V has been using this ten-issue series to examine tradition, family and pain and again it doesn't pull any punches as it takes the place of Ram's therapy bill. The two Mikes again use every trick in the comic artist's book to cram every panel and page with additional content adding to the already vast script. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Nathan Simmons Oct 5, 2021

    In a profoundly poetic issue that explores the heart of its lead character like never before, 'The Swamp Thing' deftly closes one arc and tears right into the next. Read Full Review

    THE SWAMP THING #8 is incredible. It's as much a meditation on life and humanity as it is an action comic full of thrilling fight sequences. This creative team has mastered small, intimate moments and big, bombastic ones. Read Full Review

    Geek Dad - Ray Goldfield Oct 5, 2021

    With only ten issues, I'm a little surprised that so much of this book has been devoted to a showdown with the Suicide Squad. But it's a testament to the strength of this creative team that they're able to make the new Swamp Thing's battle against these glorified goons so compelling. Read Full Review

    DC Comics News - Matthew Lloyd Oct 5, 2021

    The Swamp Thing #8 brings us closer to the conclusion of this limited series. We get some revelations that push the story further about Levi's origins and his brother, Jacob. The religious allusions work extremely well in making Levi a different kind of Swamp Thing. Perkins and Spicer continue to deliver one of the most beautiful books out there. Still hoping this turns into an ongoing, it's definitely deserving of an ongoing. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Gabe Hernandez Oct 5, 2021

    Swamp Thing #8 fills in the badly absent backstory behind Levi's transformation into the latest Swamp Thing with a bonus transformation for his brother, Jacob. While the revelation answers most questions, Jacob's intentions are unclear, Levi's selection as the latest Swamp Thing are less clear, and the result is a mass explanation that competing parties want the Green's power for themselves. So far, this series is a prime example of decompressed storytelling done the wrong way. Read Full Review
