Swamp Thing #9 (Spoilers)

This was a really fun issue to read. I loved seeing Alec's emotional fight for Abby's mind and soul. I also loved seeing Abby get essentially reborn and destroy Sethe.

Next issue we see the return of Anton Arcane -- this should be good. :)

Thank you Troy for the sig

I was kind of disappointed with this issue, after 8 issues of intense build-up to this battle with Sethe, it ends rather anticlimactically and it’s not even ended by Swamp Thing, but by Abby! Laame. But I suppose it makes sense, and this is obviously not the last we’ll see of Sethe, after all, Anton Arcane is on his way back. So something of a disappointment, but after a little bit of reflection, not nearly as much of one as I’d initially thought. This was an anti-climax because it’s not supposed to be the climax, the climax is yet to come. Pun not intended (or is it?). Yanick Paquette and Marco Rudy did their usual excellent tag-team here, but it was weird that one of the double-page spreads read from right to left. Swamp Thing has me turning Japanese!
