Product Description

Product Description

In this series from 2000, writer Brian K. Vaughan kicked off a new SWAMP THING series that starred Tefé Holland, daughter of Swamp Thing and Abigail Arcane. In this concluding volume, Tefé is on the run from government agents intent on wiping her out of existence, along with anyone she's come in contact with. But when Tefé helps a friend escape her father, a ruthless congressman bent on harming the environment, she runs headlong into radical environmentalists whose own plans are every bit as dangerous as the politician's. Plus: Tefé's father, the real Swamp Thing returns at last! But why has he chosen this moment to make his reappearance?

Collects SWAMP THING (2000) #11-20.

3.0 out of 5 stars Doesn't quite deliver 20 Sep 2014
By Ron Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
It's not bad, but the setup in Vol. 1 felt a lot more interesting than the plot coming to a head in Vol. 2 This involves a politician's daughter for the most part and the gang's (Tefe, Barnabas, and Pilate) effort to help her expose him. I honestly didn't remember anything about this from the previous book, so it felt somewhat out of left field when it's the main focus of the story here. The dialog feels like it owes a lot to Buffy The Vampire Slayer, which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but certainly different from the bleak tone established in the other book. By far, the best issue is the one that actually has Swamp Thing in it, but after the main climax of the story, the whole thing just peters out. There are a couple of scenes where it feels like the writer is saying "if you kept me on, I could have done this, or this, and it would have been really cool..." Tefe is a pretty interesting character with unusual powers, but we never seem to get a full grasp on what those powers are (and neither does she). It just never gets particularly scary or engaging, even though it's never out right terrible. It's right down the middle.
