Swamp Thing reaches the end of autumn.
Reviewed in the United States on June 2, 2014
After six large volumes comprising over 40 comic issues, Alan Moore's time as writer of Swamp Thing comes to a close. This series has reached epic heights, run into some occasional rough patches, and now finally ends as well as any long running issue can be expected to.
Swamp Thing's journey across space brings him into contact with a number of familiar faces in the DC universe, including the Thanagarians and the green lantern corps. While one issue in this volume didn't quite work (and that was more of an issue of weird-even-by-Moore-standards rather than actually being badly written) it's amazing to see how easily Swamp Thing slips into all these chunks of the DCU. One of the most impressive things about this volume is how well it sets itself up for future conflict and yet still manages to feel complete. DC could have ended this series here and no one would have blinked.
If you haven't already bought the rest of the volumes in this series, please do so. Then you can read this conclusion.
