The art is definitely the star of the ultra-creepy Swamp Thing #10, and kudos to all involved on that end. A great mag from start to finish.

From the creative tribute to the art of Bernie Wrightson (from the same issue number from 1974 yet, sleeping in my longbox) by cover artist Yanick Paquette to the dark and sinister renderings inside by Francesco Francavilla, even the letter boxes get in on the act as they practically ooze down the page.

In this issue, writer Scott Snyder attempts successfully to, layer upon layer, put two stories together so tightly that by issue’s finish the tales are one, the enemy revealed and Swamp Thing is set to once more struggle against death for a chance at life. Superb!

A gripping read for one of DC’s most unusual characters, Swamp Thing is certainly a mag to keep your eyes on!
