And Then I Read: SWAMP THING FUTURE’S END 1

I’m reading very few of the Future’s End one-shots, and none of the main series. The only thing I like about the series is that it will be over quickly and we can get on with regular story lines. This one is at least by the regular team of writer Charles Soule and artist Jesus Saiz, and gives new information about the realms of power Soule is developing on this title, adding two new ones. The Green was the first, Swamp Thing’s power base of all plants, and I’ve enjoyed how the rest have been developed along similar lines: Red for animals, Black for death and decay, Grey for fungus. New here are Divided for the microbial world and Metal for electronic power. The story is predictable if you’ve read any of the Future’s End books, as the name suggests it’s all about endings, but the tour of the realms is visually stunning and worth a look.

Recommended.
