Charles Soule’s run on Swamp Thing is setting up for an epic finish, and that’s saying a lot given some of the mega-events that have occurred in the pages of Swamp Thing over the past few years.
In this issue, we see the Machine Kingdom choosing their new avatar, and who better than someone who absolutely loathes Alec Holland--Lady Weeds. She exudes so much evil that as a reader I’m just as afraid for the machines as I am for Swamp Thing. Jesus Saiz and Matt Hollingsworth are in perfect sync with the tension Soule is building, as this book is as fun to look at as it is to read.
Everything in this book is racing toward a battle that will rival anything we’ve seen in Swamp Thing before. It’s clear Charles Soule is intent on ending his run with a bang. I’m happy to have been along for the ride and can’t wait to see how this one ends.
