Well, that will take some time to get over. Swamp Thing Winter Special is comic storytelling at its best. One that celebrates a comic legend and the work he has gifted the world. Even without that attachment, the main story that is written by Tom King and penciled by Jason Fabok is a gorgeous work that reminds us monsters come in different shapes and sizes. Swamp Thing has had many legendary runs and comics and this issue stands with the best of them.
It all starts with the work of Jason Fabok. On a purely aesthetic level, he can fill a page with some truly pristine images.The detail is massively impressive from the minutia of the vines that cover Swamp Thing’s body to the frozen breath that slowly seeps out of mouths.
