And Then I Read: SWAMP THING 33

This issue is a tale of “no good deed goes unpunished.” Alec Holland thought he would help the former avatars of The Green who had helped him by pulling them back to the real world and into human form. They’ve been complaining about that and plotting against him ever since. Nor are they united in any way except by circumstance, each of the former avatars has his or her own agenda, and here we see the agenda of Lady Weeds coming to the fore, even as that of Wolf are in play. He’s set demons from Hell after Alec, making his troubles even greater. Writer Charles Soule continues to entertain and surprise me, keeping things unpredictable yet right for the characters. The art by Javier Pina is excellent.
