Swamp Thing, Vol. 1: Raise Them Bones - Scott Snyder, Yanick Paquette, Marco Rudy I'll be honest, it took me an issue or two to get into this one. But once I did... Wow. I love the idea of the Swamp Thing being a warrior for the Green. Alec Holland was handled very well. I get his hesitation to become the creature again, and why he puts it off. The art is often stunning, just a pleasure to look at. More than once, I would turn a page and just stare at the layout in front of me, enjoying the art before reading a word, which is unusual for me. Bonus points: the reader only needs to know a bare minimum of the Swamp Thing backstory, and even that much is explained enough that even the totally uninitiated wouldn't be too lost. Lucky for me, since I've only read the first trade of Alan Moore's run. One of the best of the New 52.
