I remember reading Swamp Thing back in 2011 at the beginning of the New 52 relaunch, I still think your run on this title, alongside Scott Snyder, is one of the best titles that DC has put out in years, I can't wait for Wonder Woman Earth One.

I loved this cover so much. It inspired me to create my first ever copic marker picture and one of my first attempts at art in over a decade. My version copied your pose of the Swamp Thing so I hope you don't mind. I added a bit more of his lower body and invented my own background. You can check out a bad iphone pic of it here:… Thanks again for inspiring me (I've made a bunch more art since then!).

Love this cover art! I was signed up to receive Swamp Thing before I saw the cover, but the artwork blew me away. I was so excited to read the first issue after seeing this cover, and I am so glad I picked it up.

While the cover is fantastic and REALLY pulled me into the book, I must say I was disappointed with this first issue.

I'm sorry but when SUPERMAN has more page time than the TITLE CHARACTER ON THE COVER OF THE BOOK you have a problem.

It was the first issue. That happens. Have you read 2?
Razmere Featured By Owner Oct 13, 2011
Well a FIRST ISSUE should introduce the reader to who the hero is, what they can do, and WHY they chose to act.

NONE of these things are done in issue one of Swamp thing.

When AQUAMAN is one of the better titles in the new launch you have a problem.

As far as the new 52 are concerned, it wasn't a completely start from scratch kinda deal. Everything that happened in the DCU previously still happened, they're just starting new story arcs in order to bring in more new readers. They just wanted to create a "starting point" for people who are just getting into comic books.

Also, you need to leave room for evolution in story telling, even in the comic book arena. There are some GREAT writers right now who are re-imagining the comic story format. It's been going on for years in indie comics, but now DC and Marvel are doing it, too, and it's fantastic. I guess all I'm saying is, enjoy it. Don't get upset just because the archaic standards may have been upset.

P.S. Aquaman is awesome. Does anyone REALLY have a reason to hate him other than "he's an easy target"?

Aquaman is awsome.... I go back to the nick cardy days and aquaman is still cool, oh ya I came to make a comment on your cover, I really like it I go back to the bernie writson days and am picky about my swamp thing and I think your cover is wonderful!
Razmere Featured By Owner Oct 17, 2011
Well don't get me wrong, there have been some FUN titles in the relaunch. Aquaman being one of them.

I was just disappointed in THIS particular issue. Ya see, I AM a new reader to SWAMP THING and I couldn't have been MORE LOST! I had NO IDEA what was going on. Therefore, I felt SWAMP THING #1 was disappointing. Now for Aquaman I had NEVER read a single issue of his till NOW and I COULDN'T LOVE IT MORE! I got a great feel for who the hero is, what he does, where he's from and WHY he wants to be a hero. Now, I'm a fan and am eagerly awaiting the next issue. I CAN'T say the same for Swamp Thing.

Also, I just think it's silly how BATMAN has more titles than anyone else.
