The Pull List (1/8/14): Entering the Swamp

Posted By on Wed, Jan 8, 2014 at 10:57 AM

After Scott Snyder left Swamp Thing shortly before the #20 mark, DC chose scribe/attorney/musician Charles Soule to take the reins. Soule, with the help of artist Jesus Saiz, has formed the book into one of DC's most fascinating titles, adding a new villain and challenges unseen in the character's lore.

A new protector is chosen for the world, and Swamp Thing is trapped in the Green, a community from which his powers are rooted, after he is rendered irrelevant. Now, Alec Holland is desperately trying to find a way out to rejoin our physical world. Swamp Thing #27, with the cover title "Escape from the Green," sees the titular hero forming his plan.

If you dig Swampy and Brian K. Vaughan, DC is also releasing a graphic novel from the writer's run in the early 2000s. The series focuses on Holland's daughter, who is half-human/half-plant elemental. It's not among Vaughan's greatest, but it's an essential for fans of the character.

Let's see what's going on outside the swamp.
