"A thoughtful, well-executed new take on a great character." - Publishers Weekly

 "We have a winner...it's wonderful." - Time Out Chicago

"Snyder has made a career of writing scripts that appeal to people that aren't sold on the brightly colored world of comic books, so expect SWAMP THING to do the same." - Complex Magazine

I'm a little new to the Swamp Thing series (but I am old enough to remember the tv show, which I liked), but I must say this is a good way to get into it. I also like the way it ties into Animal Man. A good read with great artwork from Paquette!
