Ok, Swamp Thing gets a reprieve! I rather liked it. Soule gets it and does well with it. And Kano does solid work, which is thankfully not trying to ape Paquette. However, I wish they wouldn't try so hard trying to tie the New DCU together. Swamp Thing taking on a Batman villian in Metropolis, only to have Superman show up. It's a bit much. But I suppose that's the fictional world we live in now.
Phantom Stranger.....Didio can't leave soon enough. Oh how I wish JMD could just tell his stories without having to worry about tie-ins and building to events. There was a bit of frantic, throw it all the wall and see if it sticks with all the guest stars [ Spoiler : Morgan Edge, Jack Ryder, Challengers of the Unknown, as reality stars! which is a neat concept. ] It all went okay until the mandated appearance of that questioning man without a face. Horrible execution and one of the worst reimaginings of the New 52. Also, what's the deal with Stranger's coins? Am I forgetful? Or just don't care? :)
