Format: Paperback
swamp thing infernal triangles is a great read and although the style of writing mite not be up to the amazing standards of alan moores work on the comic it is just as uncomprimising, artistic and adventure's as it was when the great mr moore stepped down and moved on from the series. i began my love affair with swamp thing in the first volume of alan moores saga of the swamp thing graphic novel and from the start of volume 1 to the end of the reunion book i was engrossed and obsessed with every aspect of moores work on the book, in my opinion it is one of the greatest written peice of works ever made. his reffrences to classical litriture and obscore comics alike prove that his work is pure artistic geniouse. rick veitch carried on alot of the ideas used by moore and brought them into his own swamp thing story witch seems to end with this book after reading this i went on to read swamp things dark genisis which helps give you an idea of how it all started, my only concern is that between dark genisus and moores vol 1 there is a huge gap and also when infernal triangles ends, for direct continouity where do you go?

Format: Paperback
The debate whether comic books are art has been and gone. They are like books, some are works of artistic genius, and others are just exploitation. The problem is when something goes from being fun and exploitive, to being so far up itself that it turns into a smelly sprout. This is the case with `Swamp Thing: Infernal Triangles', a book that is so pretentious it should only be read by peering down one's nose.

`Infernal Triangles' follows on from storylines originally developed by Alan Moore, a comic writer who is rightly praised, but could also be described as a too elitist. Moore is not the writer of `Infernal', but instead this is Rick Veitch, therefore there is someone to blame for the overly complex storyline and boring dialogue. There are moments when the comic springs to life; the introduction of an alien bounty hunter is a peak, but the vast majority seems to be the internal musings of Swamp Thing and his pregnant girlfriend. I know this is now a mature medium, but talking about relationships for 120+ pages is just plain boring.

With the core cosmic story only really starting to build in `Infernal', there is hope for later books, but this one houses a number of issues that all feel like filler. To try and cheer things up there is an additional strip from a Swamp Things annual that is a comedic look at various Ape characters. It is also awful and makes no sense. It is only really some of the art work that has dated well that makes `Swamp Thing: Infernal Triangles' worth a read, or for people wishing to work their way through the entire run. I for one will not bother.

5.0 out of 5 stars Veitch the Underappreciated Swamp Writer 4 July 2008
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Alan Moore; how do you follow up an act like that on one of DC's great horror comics? By being your own man and doing it your way. While Alan Moore's Swamp Thing explore horror in an often quiet but powerful way. Rick Veitch's Swamp Thing is blunt horror on a Cosmic scale with just the scantest of flavors of Kirby for its boldest. The high and powerful of the DCU get caught in the muck of Swamp Thing.

A very worthy read.
