Swamp Thing, the living embodiment of the vibrant web of earth's
plant life known as the green, has returned triumphant from
his greatest test - travelling as a disembodied spirit across
the unimaginable distances of space and surviving its almost
insurmountable challenges to reunite with his longed for love,
Abby. But the world has kept turning in Swamp Thing's absence,
and deep in the heart of the green a new avatar has been conceived
to take his place in the great hierarchy of elementals. The
entity that was once Alec Holland now faces an agonising choice:
destroy his successor and reclaim his position as champion
of the green, or allow it to be born and risk throwing the
balance of the life on earth out of alignment - a choice
whose consequences may prove to be beyond catastrophic...
reads as though it was written earlier than the late '80s.
This is partly due to the fact that it has been printed on
comic grade paper that looks like someone has simply spliced
the pages from an old comic and stuck a glossy cover on them.
I really think it would have benefited greatly from a better
presentation - good paper stock would have been a start.
writer also attempts to cram in too many other well known
characters. John Constantine, Batman, The Joker and Superman
are just a few he slaps in for no obvious good reason other
than padding out what is a b-plot story masquerading as the
main narrative. And
as for Woodrue... He is the equivalent of Star War's
Jar Jar Binks - annoying, unlikeable and simply added for
not that Regenesis is a terrible collection. It's just
that with a little tinkering it could have been above average.
As it is, only the most dedicated Swamp Thing fan will
find anything of merit.
