    While I do continue to wish for a very good DC Black version of Swamp Thing to recapture the old Vertigo days, what we're getting here and in this series overall is the best way to introduce the character to a wider range of readers, which was the intention of the DC Giants. Bringing in two of the tales here that are shorter works well as I'm enjoying what Hester did to tell his story across the chapters so far and with some strong artwork by Mandrake that captures everything just right. It's enjoyable and interesting as it plays with familiar ideas and leans them a little bit to look at them slightly differently. Read Full Review
