    I have to admit that I have been a fan of Rick Veitch since I read an issue of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles where the Turtles help Casey Jones retrieve his stolen car from another dimension Apart from the concept of the Turtles being weird in and of itself this story was sufficiently bizarre enough for my burgeoningly weird fourteen year old self to become a fan eventually as a parent my children would have a Veitch drawn TMNT poster that once hung in my teenaged bedroom in theirs In the years between being introduced to Veitch's work I have enjoyed his other work often in tandem with Alan Moore Supreme and 1963 immediately come to mind and of course Swamp Thing Veitch became the regular artist on Swamp Thing after Stephen Bissette left the book on issue #50 and when Moore himself left became the writerartist of the book after being given a dry run that appears in Moore's final volume of the series Veitch was seen as the spiritual successor to Moore and while I have not been able to lay hands on Vol 7 the gist of that collection is that the Parliament of Trees believing the Swamp Thing dead attempts to create a new Swamp Thing Except Swamp Thing isn't dead and his unwillingness to join the Parliament screws everything up creating new corrupted versions of Swamp ThingThis collection tries to bring that scenario to its conclusion but since it is still tangentially dealing with plot threads leftover from when Moore wrote the book it is difficult to not judge what Veitch did in comparison to Moore While this collection has its moments I think the book is going to be judged against the famous Moore penned planthuman sex issue I don't want to get into why the reader might go there if they are familiar with Moore's run on the book spoilers but given that Moore had already crossed that threshold Swamp Thing's actions at the end of the collection come off as slightly hollow? I'm not sure I just feel like the retread here isn't rightAnd ultimately that is my problem with this collection One of the mainstays of both Moore and Veitch's runs on Swamp Thing is his relationship with Abby Cable nee Arcane And while Moore apparently was able to think outside the box when it came to their physical relationship Veitch makes it too normal involving certain old characters in what feels like a forced attempt at creating tension between Abby the Swamp Thing and his avatar I'm sure there will be conseuences in the next collection because the next two issues of Swamp Thing are actually included in Vol 9 and another book I won't mention the name of here again spoilers But it's just obvious that Veitch isn't as skilled at Moore at his peak Perhaps that's an unfair judgement since it's often hard to follow a legend

    Veitch's penchant for experimentation is thankfully tempered so far in his follow up to Alan Moore's outstanding run on Swamp Thing I actually enjoyed this volume than the last largely because Veitch allows the stunning art and coloring big shoutouts to Tatjana Wood to show not tell some killer plot moments Our buddy Mr Thing is struggling to find what to do with the sprout as he comes to the realization that destroying the Parliament of Trees has succeeded in simultaneously stripping his life of their autocratic BS while also unleashing a stream of zombified replacements Nice job buddyVeitch is very much a horror writer whose tendencies lean toward the absurd His confounding run on Animal Man alternately brilliant and repulsive showcases his extremes in a way his tempered issues here do not Still this story is very much about Swampy thinking things out Yeah he temporarily has to share a body with a dinosaur and grapples with some foul potential swampies but he spends huge chunks of time sitting around waiting thinking and beating the shit out of Constantine It all works More than any other DC character of this era Moss Man can sit and think his way through 18 pages of a 23 page book and have it be dynamic gorgeous action A part of me wants Veitch to just indulge in his worst instincts though We only get one true gross out in this volume and it's executed well The best plot points scenes here only tangentially involve our titular hero specifically when Swamp Thing makes a husk to save Constantine Chester's comedy of errors as he avoids getting blown up about a half dozen times and the pages showing a potential sprout harborer going up in flames My biggest grip with this new volume of Swamp Thing isn't with the vision but is instead with the degree to which Moore's influence hangs over the book like rain forest canopy Moore's run on Saga of the Swamp Thing is ostensibly a body horror comic with occasional superhero bits but is so damn good because he creates an explosive story with his empathetic complex vision for our favorite green boy Moore's Mr Bog is very much a comic book character; Veitch's version of him is nuanced but feels like less of a character than a cosmic figure Maybe that's intentional this run so far has certainly been a deep exploration of what exactly makes our Green Guardian's legacy matter Ultimately I like this run as a Moore follow up It doesn't hit the same emotional notes by any stretch of the imagination though Chester and Abby are written with deft sensitivity this was a pleasant surprise One of the few Swamp Thing storylines i knew about ahead of time is now on the verge of happening as no pun intended the seeds are now being sown for a Swamp Thing possessed Constantine to impregnate Abby Just a matter of time before we see what happens with out sprout

    I'm enjoying this a lot than I remembered and have come to the conclusion that the Rick Veitch is very underrated though I've yet to reread the confusing time travel arc Veitch manages to strike a good balance between plot adventure character development lots of elementals introduced subplots galore and prose including deep ecology philosophising He also does all the art which is less gritty and horrific than the BissetteTotleben stories but still really detailed and with clever layouts partly helped by DC's brief decision to move all of the adverts to the back of the book So many ideas are introduced and at the end of the issue Abby and Swampy begin to create Tefe a pretty mixed up character made up a lot of conflicting elements Don't stop reading 'Swamp Thing' at Moore there was still some genius to follow

    It's hard to tell a comicbook about a superhero without punching But that's what the Swamp Thing expects to be Here there's a lot of trippy religious talk I don't think it ultimately comes together although it's a good experiment It looks like DC stopped collecting this book after the Veitch run just like it stopped collecting Shade the Changing Man and Doom Patrol Collect everything spare nothing

    Who could follow Alan Moore on such a trend setting series? Rick Veitch so much fun

    Loosing patience with Abby and Alec If Constantine wasn't in this and it wasn't directly interwining with Hellblazer I would have uit reading it Chester is also awesome

    Not exactly Alan Moore but almost up to his standard Very trippy with some fantastic art and moral reckonings
