Something BIG is brewing for the rot.
Art: Paquette returns for issue number 5 and dazzles us with more of his brilliance. The art is very bold and really pops off the page especially the scenes where Alec takes hold of his powers. The creativity with the intertwining panels makes the story flow even more and just make this a fantastic comic to look at.
Plot: Alec and Abby finally come face to face with William Arcane in a magnificent clash where we see even more Green potential from Alec Holland. Also in the depths of the Amazon rain forest a serious threat is showing itself to the parliament of trees. Something BIG is brewing for the rot.
Despite the fact they we have yet to see Alec Holland embrace his destiny as Swamp Thing, the pacing of this series has been absolutely fantastic. Every issue we get a steady progression into this story which is building for something huge. The direct attack on the parliament of trees was a great move as we can see the range and scope of the rots influence. I really like William Arcane as a villain, a powerful young boy with a psychotic and raging mind really adds another dimension to the story. Issue 6 can't come quick enough.
