Swamp Thing #5 (A place between Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sun Jan 08, 2012 2:29 pm

After a few issues of heavy, heavy exposition, Swamp Thing unleashes some action this time out, and it’s damn good stuff. Paquette continues to wow me with his fantastic artwork, his layouts in particular are great, reaching almost JH Williams levels. Thank goodness this book has a better story than Batwoman, and that the level of craft Paquette puts in is well-served. The fight between Alec and William was wonderfully creepy what with all the zombie pigs and cows. It was also good to see some actual Swamp Thing-ing, as Alec hasn’t actually used his powers for a while, and the title was bordering on false advertising! I’m not sure how Alec and Abby kissing means that the rot wins, but the way it was shown, with the ‘dream-selves’ floating above them was brilliant.

I loved the holy crap nature of the ending. How the hell is Alec going to stop what's happening so far away?

Certainly the best under DC-proper.

I would say American Vampire and The Unwritten at Vertigo give it a run for it's money, and Locke & Key at IDW.
