Swamp Thing #6 (Checkmate Spoilers)

Most of the issues of this title have been quite slow-moving, but this one went by really fast. The forces of The Rot attack Alec and Abby, and it’s revealed that it’s not William who is the Rot Avatar, but Abby. Dun dun dun! Some of the scenes in this issue really were disturbing and Marco Rudy depicted that in filthily good fashion. I always miss Paquette but the fill-ins for this book have done well to maintain the tone he has set. The ending was pretty damn shocking too, but I’m guessing that Alec’s death will be what forces the Green to turn him into Swamp Thing again. I really like how this title has boiled down an age-old struggle between two opposing forces into a man fighting his lover. It’s epic, but also human.

I loved the way that everything involving William Arcane has been one big distraction by the Rot to manipulate Alec into doing exactly what the Rot wanted him to do -- an example of really good storytelling.

I am really curious to see which version of Swamp Thing we are going to get now. I really wanted to see the ultimate champion of the Green, Alec Holland version but this ending leaves me wondering if we won't get the previous non-Alec version instead.
