    One thought on “Swamp Thing, Vol. 9: Infernal Triangles”

    1. Did you know that Swamp Thing porn was a niche? A slimy, green, fecund nicheBut don't worry about being thought a pervert for reading this, there's also incest, lesbianism, and threesomes* to make it more mainstream. And a bunch of pregnancy, because who doesn't want a baby, even a baby that's made with a hideous vegetal monstrosity? Aside from the sex parts and Abby brooding over her relationship not much actually happens, and what does happen seems confused, brief, and under-developed. There i [...]

    2. It's not that Rick Veitch is a bad writer - he's decent enough. His art is certainly above average. But he just doesn't have Alan Moore's magic. He tries to capture Moore's talent for creating unique characters, for blending mysticism and new ideas with classic comic story and imagry, but he just can't do it. And I can't put my finger on why, but his Abby Arcane is just so damned dippy.

    3. I so wanted to like this volume. I liked Veitch's run quite a lot, and I wanted to like how it ended. I think he knew he was running out of time on his tenure, so he felt compelled to wrap up some of the bigger stories before he left, and yet still end on a compelling, interesting note, but what we got instead feels rushed, poorly plotted, incoherent (like the Distant Cousins special? What the actual f*** WAS that?), and just downright bad storytelling. That being said, there was enough here tha [...]

    4. Seguramente la nostalgia me juega en contra aquí, pero siendo fan de lo que hizo en Swamp Thing, Alan Moore, nunca pude leer esta continuación. Y muuchos años después por fin la encuentro y no me decepciona encontrar a los viejos Swampy, Abby y Constantine engendrando un nuevo elemental de la Tierra y continuando con las exploraciones de lo que significa el amor, las obligaciones y el poder. Muy bueno.

    5. What a confused little TPB; story does not complete at all, and DC opted not to collect the issues that come after this one. Thus, we're left on a weird cliffhanger (not even, really, because it hadn't managed to build up that far) and then plummeted into a story about apes that takes place before the rest of the TPB.Weird stuff.I don't think that most of it is necessarily Veitch's fault, but that it's more DC's fault for cutting off the TPBs after this.If you're curious as to what happens durin [...]

    6. After becoming an instant Swamp Thing fan thanks to Alan Moore, I close the book on this final volume, Volume 9, which ended with a story about gorillas. I have never given a Swamp Thing book one star until now. But in many ways, I'm not giving one star to STe he's barely in this volume. But if you like Chester the mooching stupid hippie and a bunch of fucking talking gorillas, this book is for you.

    7. This has strangely been collected out of order. The annual issue at the end of this volume belongs about a year earlier (probably in the previous collected edition) and the annual that should be in between the regular issues collected here is missing. Very strange.
