riwiro reviewed Swamp Thing #1 Feb 9, 2016
9.5

Swamp Thing is back. While it's nigh on impossible to take anything away from all that came after it (especially Alan Moore's work), this takes us back to the start, to what Len Wein had originally envisaged for the character: monsters! And it's nice reading Len Wein's intricate descriptions of old. Wein manages a nostalgia that remains welcome and relevant in the modern era.
This is classic more

Swamp Thing #1

By: Len Wein, Kelley Jones
Released: Jan 6, 2016

Swamp Thing returns in an all-new series written by his co-creator, legendary writer Len Wein! Swamp Thing has received an ominous warning, and now he finds himself under attack from the forces of dark magic. These are more than just your average monsters-and there's something much worse looming on the horizon for Alec Holland!
