`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.
