Swamp Thing Goes On A World Tour Of Arboreal Destruction In ‘Swamp Thing’ #5

Swamp Thing #5, DC Comics

One thing I really appreciate about a city is when it has a nice green space. Parks, public gardens, even those little flower beds that you sometimes see at intersections and roundabouts, I love 'em all. They add a lot of character to a place, and they're really nice to look at. The thing is, they're only nice when they're, you know, planned out and cultivated, and not when they erupt through famous landmarks at the behest of an unstoppable plant elemental who is holding the world hostage. Those tend to be a little less pleasant.

And that's exactly what the world's facing in Len Wein and Kelley Jones's Swamp Thing #5, in which Matt Cable --- who you may remember from his lengthy tenure as a bird --- has taken over the power of the Swamp Thing, and immediately set about giving landmarks all over the world a new leafy makeover. Check out a preview!

Swamp Thing Gets Serious In January With Len Wein And Kelley Jones

Swamp Thing #1, DC Comics

It wasn't that long ago that DC's Convergence event gave a few creators the chance to return to characters that they made their mark on in past eras, and in January, it seems like that's an idea that's bleeding back into the DC Universe --- or at least to the Louisiana swamps of the DC Universe. On January 6, Swamp Thing relaunches with a new six-issue miniseries, coming courtesy of writer Len Wein, who co-created Swamp Thing with Bernie Wrightson back in 1971, and artist Kelley Jones.

Best Art Ever (This Week): Batman ’66, PJ Harvey, Calvin & Hobbes, Mister X and More

Untitled-1

We make a regular practice at ComicsAlliance of spotlighting particular artists or specific bodies of work, but because cartoonists, illustrators and their fans share countless numbers of great images on sites like Flickr, Tumblr, DeviantArt and seemingly infinite art blogs that we’ve created Best Art Ever (This Week), a weekly depository for just some of the pieces of especially compelling artwork that we come across in our regular travels across the Web. Some of it’s new, some of it’s old, some of it’s created by working professionals, some of it’s created by future stars, some of it’s created by talented fans, and some of it’s endearingly silly. All of it’s awesome.
