It looks like the long-awaited crossover between this book and Swamp Thing is finally kicking off in earnest now. Cliff collapsing at the end and saying ‘Arcane…’ was a great moment to cap off a very good issue. Buddy’s body is rebuilt by the creepy yellow ‘aliens’ that originally gave him his powers, and after a fantastic scene showing him growing from a tiny microbe to a lizard to a monkey and then finally back into himself, he’s spat back out into the real world. But he’s more than himself, his ride has been pimped, and he’s even more powerful, able to not just take abilities from animals, but also to take physical elements like wings. The fight between Buddy and Rot-Buddy was a bit shorter than I expected, but still good, especially when Buddy punched his head clean off. It’s a shame that Swamp Thing didn’t come out as usual this week, I want to get to the good stuff now. Alberto Ponticelli fills-in on art, and after working together on Frankenstein, it’s clear that he and Lemire have a good rapport, and it was good to see him adjust his style to something more like Foreman and Pugh, I like that in an artist.

It should be interesting seeing what happens to Buddy now that he's more powerful than he was before.
