I am an enormous Swamp Thing fan, and I have finally read through the New 52 run.
This was…all right. Honestly, out of the 5 solo series he has had, this earns 3rd place. I do have a number of problems with it, but a lot of them can be connected more to the general New 52 initiative itself rather than just this series. It wants to restart this character from the beginning, but it also keeps events from before Flashpoint canon, except for the random stuff it retcons out. From that perspective, it is a mess.
But there is stuff that I like. The addition of The Rot is actually very cool and having Abigail Arcane choosing to become the avatar for that parliament actually does add some emotional depth. I loved Abby from the other previous Swamp Thing series, but it’s nice that she is actually having a larger role. The last story involving the birth of a Machine Kingdom is actually a very interesting idea and one that I would like to see explored in a potential future Swamp Thing series, if not in the current Justice League Dark series. There was also a couple of things involving The Green I liked, but it seemed like they made the Parliament of Trees even bigger ***holes than normal.
All in all, this series had some admittedly pretty cool and interesting stuff. A number of problems for sure, but honestly I am glad that I finally got around to reading up on this series.
