It's hilarious--for being a book with the focus on a behemoth of a man carrying a severed witch's head, it feels so real, especially with Agatha Blue Witch's constant annoying of Head Lopper (Norgal will do just fine).

I read these as they came out, and I definitely enjoyed it. The art is the best part for me, and the writing is good as well, but the story itself seems a little too all over the place for me, personally. But again, the art makes it worth the buy.

Pav reviewed Swamp Thing #4 Apr 11, 2016
9.0

Despite most people feeling like it is the worst issue of the series so far (at least that I've spoken to), I thought it was the best. The cover definitely oversells a "deadly battle" with Alec Holland, but I really enjoy the idea of Swamp Thing taking on a villainous role with Matt Cable. I'm absolutely unsure of how this turns around for Alec, though.

Swamp Thing #4

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

Alec Holland tries to help a friend learn the ways of the Green, but is he the same person Alec remembers? Could something far more sinister than dark magic be looming?

It's definitely not a bad comic, just not a great one either. (Using 5 as "average" for my scale).

Maybe it's just because of the first issue, but this never grabbed me. I get there were moments and there is a mystery behind all that went on, but it never hits home. I'll read at least two more issues to give it a fair shot, but so far, not so good.
