    With a strong creative team working two stories that come in at half the length of the usual ones, what we get are some tight works that could have used a bit more room to breathe but are well-told when you look at where they originally appeared. I love short-form storytelling and am glad that the DC Giants are providing for that and that a character like Swamp Thing got to be included as it allows for some good semi-horror material to make its way in. Hester doesn't get to dig too deep into what makes Swampy who he is but it captures the nature of the bayou well while Tom Mandrake delivers some great looking designs and pages throughout. I'm looking forward to the next installment that has them back for two more short stories. Read Full Review
