Swamp Thing #1
by Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette
Art: Great, wow, I could recognize the plants myself. Really stunning work.
Story: Great, introduced the character, set in motion several areas of tension, introduced a genuinely frightening badguy, really a solid comic.
Character: I don’t know much about the character and we don’t learn much about Swamp Thing, his powers or his mission, but he is visually interesting.
Issue Review: it seems like the writer is avoiding the cliche primitivism that could easily beset such a nature hero. A flat narrative of nature = good, man = bad would be boring and biologically naive, so I’m happy that the writer avoided it.
Subscribe: If I had the money I would. I have to be extra stingy with my funds otherwise I had it added to my list.
