And Then I Read: SWAMP THING 21

Swamp Thing is back home in the bayou, and writer Charles Soule gets the chance to really show us what he brings to the book with a new storyline. So far I’m impressed. An apparently young warrior woman shows up to claim sanctuary at Alec Holland’s feet, in a tradition he knows nothing about, and moments later she’s attacked by pursuers. The woman acquits herself well, and when Alec has a chance to investigate her case through The Green, he learns more about her story, as well as a new threat headed his way.

The art by Jesu Saiz is excellent, combining beautiful drawing and great character acting with dynamic action and just enough surrealism to work with what has gone before. At times I was reminded of José Luis Garcia López, high praise indeed. I’m looking forward to more from this team.

Highly recommended.
