A review by joshhansonhorror
Saga of the Swamp Thing: Book Five by Alan Moore


After the cosmic narrative of the previous story arc, this feels very small and sometimes directionless. Abby gets a lot of screentime, which is always good, but it's mostly an exercise in breaking her down. The final issue, My Blue Heaven does something Moore almost never does, retreads stories he's already told. If you can't see the similarities between Swampy on the blue planet, playing chess with himself(1987) and Doctor Manhattan's visit to the moon in Watchmen (1986), you're not trying hard enough. I mean, even the color scheme is the same. Still, I'm looking forward to the final volume of Moore stories to see where this lands.
