The ride that writer Charles Soule has taken Swamp Thing on continues to surprise and entertain me. Every time Alec Holland seems to have a handle on his problems, things change again for the worse. Right now, the former avatar of the Green, Lady Weeds, now avatar of Machines, is making his existence miserable, and even his allies like Abigail Arcane and John Constantine can’t seem to help him put things to rights. And despite the grim situations, Soule manages to find moments of humor and real emotion that are so often missing from comics these days. The art by Jesus Saiz is excellent, making this one of my favorite comics right now.
