    As a lifelong Swamp Thing fan; you are welcome to write this forever (or 100 issues is okay).

    Is it ok to start with Soule's run, or is Snyder's run "required reading" ?

    Nah, dive in with Soule's stuff. That way you miss the incredibly tedious Rotworld extravaganza. Dude turns into a swamp monster and protects the interests of plants on earth is the simple rundown. There's more to it than that, but that's enough to get you going.

    I started with Soule's run and the only other run on swamp thing I have read is Alan Moore's and I must say that it's one of my favourite books being published.

    Best news: Soule has no intentions of leaving.

    Funny thing I realized while reading this interview. Alec kinda became like Arcane. Arcane also put his parliament into the closet so that he could do whatever he wanted to do. Sure it's good thing that Alec doesn't want to kill everyone like Arcane, but as I understand now Alec has power of a god without anyone capable of plugging him off.
    lots of dots

    Love this book. Soule is an excellent writer, and Jesus Saiz is the best artist with DC today.

    Did anyone else get the feeling from Soule's response, that he might not be so favorable to Saiz? I hope this isn't the case. But when asked about Saiz, his response isn't really praise specifically to Jesus Saiz. It's more of a general response with praise to the many artists, the colorist, etc. I don't know...something about how he answered that struck me as odd, or kind of diverting from answering directly about Saiz.

    I saw it as making sure that everyone on the art team gets a nod for the fantastic work, not just the man working pencils. I certainly hope they get along, because Swamp Thing is a beautiful collaboration right now, and I wouldn't want that to change.

    Really looking forward to where Soule goes next with this.

    I never read the old Swamp Thing classics, but it's pretty clear that this run is built on a respect for what came before. I had tried Snyder's stuff in the beginning but it just didn't hook me. Soule made me a fan after one issue and I love how he's building out the mythology.

    This may be the only DC book, I'm buying but I can't imagine dropping it for anything else right now.
    Currently reading She-Hulk, Deadpool, Swamp Thing, Ms. Marvel

    Probation: Ghost Rider, Loki: LoA, Secret Avengers

    Looking forward to All-New Ultimates, Flash Gordon and Doctor Mirage.

    Read Alan Moore's Saga of Swamp Thing if you get a chance. This run is fantastic, really one of the best things I'm reading right now, but Moore's run is something else. One of the best comic book runs ever.

    Swamp Thing is a real gem, I hope Soule's run lasts for many years to come.

    It's not required reading, but it's awesome. Some people disliked Rotwolrd but I thought it was fun, and everything leading up to the cross over was gold. Soule's run is awesome too, so why not read 27 issues of awesome Swampy?

    Start with #19. And no, I don't think it's preachy.
