And Then I Read: SWAMP THING #6

Writer Len Wein and artist Kelley Jones bring their miniseries to a satisfying conclusion in this issue. The true villain emerges, and he’s a familiar one. It takes the combined efforts of The Spectre, Zatanna and the Phantom Stranger, as well as Alec Holland, to bring his world conquest plans to a halt, and even then the occult powers they bring to bear must be used in unexpected ways that will cost Holland dearly. The writing has few surprises, but lots of enjoyable moments all the same. The art by Jones gets a little weirder than usual in spots, especially with anatomy, but it’s as visually stunning as always. The love of both creators for the project comes through clearly, and I enjoyed every moment of it. Kudos also to colorist Michelle Madsen and letterer Rob Leigh for fine work throughout.
