Swamp Thing, Vol. 4: A Murder of Crows - Alan Moore, Ron Randall, Stephen R. Bissette, Stan Woch, John Totleben, Rick Veitch, Alfredo Alcala Mostly outstanding, with what may be some of the best issues yet. The overarching story that was begun in the last collection is (mostly) resolved here. It does sort of tie into [b:Crisis on Infinite Earths|194479|Crisis on Infinite Earths|Marv Wolfman|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1327906696s/194479.jpg|188088], but in a very roundabout way. Swamp Thing's unease around Alexander Luthor is hilarious in hindsight, though there's no way Moore could have known what would eventually happen with him. Instead, Swamp Thing, Constantine, and a host of DC's magically oriented characters band together to stop an ancient evil force. Unfortunately, it was this part that started to drag. The stand alone stories that took up most of the first half were far better, and intensely creepy. Boogeyman and Ghost Dance were more than worth the price of admission, and good enough by far to overcome the underwhelming and sometimes overcrowded Big Event.
