  1. This book confuses me. A friend of mine asked me why I was still buying this, I couldn’t think of a single reason why but I’m still going to buy it this week.

    • I felt that way for a long while, but I stopped buying this. Though I picked up last issue.

      It feels like this book could be and should be great, but it’s just not.

    • the problem is that its been inconsistent in my opinion, there has been some really good issues but as where other series have a dud once in awhile in a good run this has been up and down the whole time.

    • If Paquette drew this book regularly, I’d buy it forever

  2. I think people are having a hard time following the unabridged story that Scott is telling. All the thoughts listed above are what I thought of when I read the Black Mirror story. As I have grown as a reader I understand what he is trying to get at here.

  3. I think the artwork has been worth the $2.99 alone each and every month, even when the story seems to be staying still a bit. Walking Dead gets away with staying still all the time. They were in that prison for like two years in the comic. Like nuffin happened

  4. I’ve really enjoyed this run so far. Some issues are better than others, but that happens with every book. Overall the story has been engaging, and the art is fantatstic, I look forward to it every month.

  5. I really can’t understand how any reader can be confused reading this. Maybe Im in the minority here but this has been a great run in my opinion.

  6. I keep checking to see if this series has turned back around, and I guess it still hasn’t. I know its been over 25 years since Moore had the book, but I don’t think it will ever be as good. Is it wrong of me to compare, or did the early issues invite a comparison? I heard it called a ‘fantastic’ run, how? Why? Yes, I really liked the book, but after we saw Super Hero Swamp Thing, and all the personal interaction stopped, it was over for me. I really want to read his trip in Gotham City, so if it gets better please let me know. I really like the character, so I’ll be watching.

  7. I’m sticking with this book at least until Rotworld is over. Then I’ll have to see, but I’m most likely going to drop it.

  8. I thought the annual was a great aside for the character and story. And I’m looking forward to getting back into the action in Rot World. Whereas Animal has lost my attention, Swamp Thing gets better and better for me.

  9. Have to say Paquette really makes this title worth reading. I was beginning to lose interest but I’m intrigued again. Not a mind blowing issue but I like the direction the title is going.

  10. I’m really liking Swamp Thing, the dream imagery was really cool in this issue, Im liking the story and excited for Swampy to get the weapon he needs to defeat Arcane. I’m enjoying seeing characters like Poison Ivy show up, and would love to see her kick ass more. The art is great and the bad guys sufficiently creepy. Hopefully Swampy ends up with Abigail in the end though, that’s what I’m wanting to happen. It will be interesting to see how this ties back in with Animal Man and if the two titles will stay connected post-rotworld.

  11. Just when you think things are about to get rolling the story gets bogged down again. Between the zero issue and the annual this series feels herky jerky with all the stops and starts. Alan Moore took on all manner of horrors- vampires, werewolves, serial killers, etc.- all within the umbrella arc of a larger storyline. It’s do or die for the Rotworld saga. Don’t bore us, get to the chorus!

  12. My interest in this book wanes each issue.

  13. I really enjoyed the the annual issues because it made me fall in love with Abigail, which helped to raise the stakes for the Rotworld saga. Can’t wait for the next issue!

  14. You got your Red, your Green, Your Grey. Think we’re going a little overboard with the color connections in DC. I’m waiting to hear about the chartreuse crusader next. This story is just crawling along and I’m tired of it. How is this thing supposedly affecting the whole DC universe but everybody else’s books are just hunky dory? Think I’m about done.

  15. I was going to drop Animal Man and Swamp Thing – because I was tiring of the story – but I decided at the last minute to give Swamp Thing another chance. I am glad I picked this one up. The art continues to be pretty cool, and I enjoyed how Swamp Thing used his powers. The story still seems to be moving just a touch too slow, but I am enjoying the abbe/alec connection and how its being represented.
