Swamp Thing foiled Sunderland’s plan to create sentient, self-harvesting crops, but now Sunderland is aiming even higher. It could mean the end of the world as we know it...and the beginning of a brand-new one.

    This is a series that goes right to the heart of what Swamp Thing stands for, and while the story can feel predictable, rest assured the end we find in Swamp Thing: New Roots #6is something you won't see coming. It's a wonderful twist that will have you thinking about this book long after reading it. Read Full Review

    While a kind of standard story in a way, it's the story that I think needs a good bit of expansion and reworking that would make for a great Black Label OGN property if it could be bumped to the next level and really go for old-school Vertigo style dialogue and artwork with the team we have here. It's got great bones and is a really enjoyable story that gives me what I want to see in comics, actual changes and results from actions made that lead to different settings and nature of the world. Swamp Thing has always been a great character under many writers and artists and the team here handled their time with him very well. It's a satisfying ride even if I yammer on about wanting to see them expand it in a more adult-oriented way. I'm envious of those who read something like this for the first time, a fresh experience, and their minds get a little bit blown by it like I was when I first started reading comics as a kid. That's the promise of stories like these. Read Full Review
