Comment: Without knowing the very past of Swamp Thing I cannot say how much this story is linked to older stories. As a separate story, it is nothing special. There is many characters and they do not build up anything concret. The story is a search of missing link, but it does not create any deeper meaning for it; they search it, find it, but the conclusion does not change anything. Not even character development. Just some bizarre loose ends without connetion to the main plot. Mr. Corben’s art is it’s best in the swampy jungle, and the main character. He creates with some branches, leaves and roundy underbrush an interesting environment for the story (compare the roundy snow on yeti in the very beginning!). The deformed humanoids remind Berni Wrightson’s Freak Show.
