Alec Holland’s old friend Matthew Cable has returned with a way to let Alec regain his human form. To do it, Matthew and Alec will change places, making Matthew the new Swamp Thing. They accomplish this with the help of Zatanna, and a powerful magical object Matthew has discovered. The exchange is made, and at first Alec is delighted to be human again. Then he begins to see what Matthew has in mind for his role as Swamp Thing, and it’s far from benign.
Write Len Wein and artist Kelley Jones continue to entertain in this mini-series which kind of takes Swamp Thing back to simpler days and a small cast, but still delivers lots of interesting events and amazing art.
