A great finale to an incredible run! Morrison's tale is both a simple hero facing overwhelming odds story and an interesting commentary on the comic book industry. Liam Sharp has proven time an again throughout this run just how much talent he has and in this finale he exits the series in high style. It's sad to see that DC is seemingly stepping back from Hal Jordan when this series shows how mall more

This was a really fun series, more enjoyable than Adventures of the Super Sons, my only problem with it is how convoluted it kind of becomes because of the rule/non-rule(?) of the scroll.

I really don't want to rain on anyone's parade but this isn't a book that really deserves an average 10. I get what Ram V is doing here, he's trying to copy Ewing's Immortal Hulk with the Green being the Below-Place. And while it is an interesting idea, the execution is pretty different and not in a good way, the dialogue especially is pretty bad. It has potential but I don't think it will evolve more

I haven't read Alan Moore's Swamp Thing, I've heard good things about it and I plan to read it one day. I don't see what that has to do with what I said. I said that Ram V is copying here Ewing's whole Immortal Hulk shtick. What's so "rich" about that?

Swift Planet - May 8, 2021

It was because Immortal Hulk was a book in very similar vein to Swamp Thing already. Don't get me wrong, I think they're both great and I wouldn't call Immortal Hulk a copy, but they use similar tones and themes.
