Another Annual, and while this story didn’t reveal anything especially new with regards to the upcoming war against the rot, it was a lot of fun and really showed what Animal Man and Swamp Thing are up against. After a brief and funny framing sequence with Maxine and Socks, we flashback to 1890s Canada, and see what happened the first time the Avatars of the Red and the Green teamed up to fight the Rot. As always, it’s fun to see Jeff Lemire use a bit of Canadian history, as it’s not a topic most comics bother with, but as Lemire is Canadian, it makes sense, and it gives the flashback something different than the usual Old American West setting. Plus it’s always cool to see Mounties. The artwork here from Timothy Green II was spectacular, especially in the double-page spreads and when he got to draw some sickening rot-monsters. I had previously thought that only Travel Foreman could do those monsters, but Green can do it too. This story has made me very excited for when the ‘real’ Swamp Thing and Animal Man finally cross over. Bring it on!

What I found to be particularly interesting was that this Annual referenced the Hunters Two, while in the present day, we were introduced to the Hunters Three. This would mean that the third hunter was introduced between the time of the Annual and the beginning of the current series. I wonder if they will explore this in future issues or if it has any significance in the long run.

I noticed that too, and hopefully they do.

I'll also add that the vision of Buddy Baker that he had makes me think that we may not have seen the last of Jacob Mullin.
