COMICON‘Swamp Thing' #11 returns but with our titular hero far from in the best of conditions after events from the close of Season One. Luckily, Ran V and Mike Perkins are in far better health as they once again deliver an outstanding issue from start to finish.

Geek DadI won't pretend I understand everything that's going on in this issue just yet, but I'm fine with that. It's yet another strong chapter in a sci-fi/horror epic that looks like it's going to go down as a defining take on the character.
Sequential PlanetThe Swamp Thing is back and the latest issue successfully establishes the stakes while reminding readers what makes this series so special.
ComicBook.comReaders return to Levi Kamel's journey into the Green shortly after his apparent death beside his brother in The Swamp Thing #10. As a result of that destructive climax, this issue functions as a reset discovering where each of the surviving characters are now and how they're continuing forward. That focus is primarily split between Jennifer Reece as she reaches out to new allies in an attempt to find Levi amidst the Green and Harper Pilgrim as he uses his discoveries to make himself immortal. These explorations and transformations focus the series squarely on the realm of ideas with avatars like the Swamp Thing functioning as physical embodiments of essential concepts. This aligns well with Mike Perkins' style as the grit of surgeries and backwoods dens align with the metaphysical presentation of the Green. Dreamscapes and landscapes alike come alive under his inks and with impressive effects. This makes unpacking the fallout of The Swamp Thing #10 and establishing the conflicts for this "second season" all the more intriguing. I anticipate seeing where the story goes from here.
Weird Science DC ComicsThe Swamp Thing #11 is possibly the strongest entry in the series with creepy body horror, substantial plot progression, and genuine curiosity for what's happening to the Green.
