I reckon this and Constantine have fragments of potential.
The latest issue still has a ridiculous conspiracy going on around Swampy without really conveying that air of aloof unawareness that was a factor in the Veitch, Millar and Vaughan years. It has more "roots" (LOL) in the stories that preceded Alan Moore's run, and seriously DC is OB-fucking-SESSED with great big organisations and cults.

"Oh, the Green Lanterns, we need the rainbow of Lanterns"
"Oh, we need to make up a collective of loosely affliiated magicians to FIGHT CONSTANTINE"
"Oh, we have The Green and The Red and The Grey and The Blue and The Brown, we need a Parliament of Electrical Household Appliances, but what color shall the be?"

It's not supposed to be realistic in that sense."

In the comic shop yesterday, I was shocked by the cover of a comic claiming to be Swamp Thing.
You will recall, I dropped it due to DCU52 infestation and boring plots.
So I opened it up to have a look and sure enough, it is not a Swamp Thing comic at all, but some sort plant/cyborg amalgam thing about one of the supporting cast. I say "supporting" but I mean zzzzzzz.

I kept searching for Swamp Thing.
I think he may appear on 3 pages or something.
The plant robot lady may well be intending to kill Swampy.
I don't know.

"a dire visit from John Constantine" ?
What, they compare notes on being poorly written, whilst remembering their salad days at Vertigo? Swampy warns John of the pitfalls of network TV adaptations?

"Cancelled" in March along with several others, leading into Convergence (9 weeks in which all the DC line is collapsed into one story?)

And lined up for Del Toro film ... so I expect some sort of well written relaunch in the next two years.

They'd have to be deranged to let this slip.

i am more concerned with del toro being more motivated at the moment, to do another pacific rim and similar shite, instead of this.

Looks like I'm not the target readership for this title. I prefer at least 5 panels per page of comic book. And I've already seen the Cybermen episodes of Doctor Who.

While Constantine has been handling the crossover well, the story that made me drop the Swamp Book shambles on like a mud-encrusted mockery of a story.

Concepts:
A list missing only The Shit.

Someone on the facebook mentioned that Constantine turned up in the latest issue, and thankfully I found this excellent review site

One hopes that post-convergence, Swamp Thing reverts to a horror book.
