Scott Snyder, did you ever know that you’re my hero and everything I would like to be? This new Swamp Thing began as a beautifully depicted and suitably scripted series but has rapidly been upping the ante on the story side once the necessary exposition has been delivered to the reader. There are some deeply horrifying scenes in this issue and some very compelling twists in the story, as the Rot continues to show its teeth to our reluctant hero. Old flames are re-introduced and lungs are literally falling out of people’s throats! All in all, this is exactly what it sets out to be and then some, an excellent comic.
