This series gives me nostalgia for the old Swamp Thing/Hellblazer/Animal Man era of Vertigo. I am loving it and bummed that it's only a miniseries.

Ram V is probably my favorite writer currently at DC right now. Levi concludes his first trial as the new Avatar of The Green and I'm sure the journey ahead will be a tumultuous one for him. I'm really enjoying having a new Swamp Thing series and this has so far lived up to the high standards set by previous runs on this series.

Swamp Thing #2

Released: Apr 7, 2021

The trials of Levi Kamei, the new avatar of the Green, grow darker as the Pale Wanderer’s bloody spree leaves a trail of death across the Sonoran Desert. While his “lessons” begin to show Levi the true nature of what he is becoming, it is Jennifer Reece who’ll show Levi that he must contend with his past and his trauma in order to stop the ...

The Squad wraps up their interstellar mission with two new recruits. I think Waller having this line-up is gonna blow up in her face sooner or later. Meanwhile, Flag and his Squad prepare to finally make their move against Waller. Thompson continues to write my favorite Squad run in years! This self-proclaimed worst Squad ever is the exact kind of group of misfits and d-listers I expect from this more

Suicide Squad #10

By: Robbie Thompson, Eduardo Pansica
Released: Dec 8, 2021

The Suicide Squad barely manage to steal an alien technology from OA only to find themselves cut off from their transport back to Earth and on the run from Lanterns and Thanagarians. And no backup is coming from Earth because Amanda Waller is under fire from her onetime ally, current-time enemy: Rick Flag!

A very satisfying issue that ties up Cole's journey with Hawk while also planting seeds for the future of the series. Overall this arc has been more inconsistent than the first but it definitely ended with a banger of an issue.

The Department of Truth #13

By: James Tynion IV, Martin Simmonds
Released: Sep 29, 2021

END OF STORY ARC
Thirty years ago, Cole Turner dreamed up a Star-Faced Man who ate children in the basement of his preschool. Today, Cole is going to make sure that nightmare can never haunt another kid. The second arc of the smash-hit THE DEPARTMENT OF TRUTH ends here with a revelation that turns the series upside down!

Yet another exposition-heavy issue but Simmonds art continues to amaze and the twist at the end was genuinely unexpected. I'm hoping next issue will make the getting through the slower parts of this arc worth it.

The Department of Truth #12

By: James Tynion IV, Martin Simmonds
Released: Aug 25, 2021

America was built on a lie that's never quite come true. The cracks in that idealistic vision have inspired dangerous people to do horrible things in the name of an America that's never really existed. Hawk Harrison knows the genuine story of this country, and he's ready to give Cole Turner a history lesson.

The characters are still well-written but this is a let-down after last issue. Having all the dead ex-Squad members brought back to Waller ruins one of the best things about the Squad: having disposable c-list villains. On the plus side, the Swamp Thing mission is finally over and it looks like Flag is trying to recruit Peacemaker. Now that is the story I'm excited to read!

There's been a lot of good, creative power combinations during the Krakoan era of X books, but I think the teamwork on display in Marauders #25 takes the cake. Only complaint would be the flat colors by Noto, which just don't accentuate his line work the same way as the watercolor effect.

A fun Halloween themed issue. I liked Jean's battle against Nightmare; this was a good showcase for how powerful she can be in a positive way. My biggest complaint about X-Men #4 is I would've liked to see more nightmares from the rest of the team. Otherwise, Duggan continues telling good stand-alone X-Men stories while also advancing the main narrative.
