It’s Dr. Alec Holland v. The Parliament of Trees, and only one can be Green.

Branching off where the gruesome final panel of Swamp Thing #6 left off, Alec Holland is transported into the Green… Not so the Parliament can change him into Swamp Thing in the hopes of saving them from annihilation, but to make him suffer more for his obdurateness. After an explosive wrangle while the head-twisted minions of the Rot scorch the Parliament, Alec makes a clear decision, one that might save the Green and rescue Abby Arcane before she takes her rightful seat on the “throne of bent flesh.”

This is no doubt Scott Snyder’s best installment yet, and the only thing that matches wits with the superb writing is the return of Yanick Paquette’s artistry, once again making use of magnificent and macabre paneling to keep this rife story wrapping itself around Swamp Thing’s readers. Paquette creates a beautiful dichotomy between Green and Rot, combining flower child framing with burnt out borders that seem to rot right off the page, and each of these panels are as intricate and unique as a single leaf and helps to craft a story of death and rebirth that will undoubtedly bloom in the next issue.
