Currently Reading: Swamp Thing Book 8: Spontaneous Generation
I kind of read through 100 Bullets volume 9: Strychnine Lives without making an update on that one, so lets pretend I did.
Anyway, in the last volume of Swamp Thing, the first in Rick Veitch’s run, we started off relatively weakly but gradually got better as we got to explore the Swamp Thing’s relationship with the Parliament of Trees. They’ve basically had the idea that he was dead while he was off planet during the end of Moore’s run so they were preparing a new vessel and spirit to become the avatar of the Green. But they were wrong, Swamp Thing is still alive, and he refuses kill his new successor, so instead he’s trying to find a way to coexist with it. However, he’s failing at doing that and instead creating corrupt dopplegangers of himself. So where does he go for help? John Constantine!
The last volume as a whole was pretty enjoyable, so I’m excited to see how Veitch’s story continues.
