Its really good but bogs down once you hit rotworld. Pick up Animal Man since the books work in tandem for the most part.

My favorite issue of the Snyder run is the first annual with art by Becky Cloonan.

I don't have to read Animal Man do I? I've actually never even heard of that characters until a couple of days ago.. I think that the animal annual is somehow intertwined with these Swamp Thing TPB's I have. I have gotten that far yet. Just the first book, issues #1-7. I can't really afford to buy Animal Man right now though. Swamp Thing was always one of my favorite superheroes growing up that's why I decided to choose this. I was torn between this and Uncanny X-men Remender run.. this was the cheaper option.

Nah they intersect with each other but they really cross over until issue #12. After that they tell two sides of the same story and don't reconnect till #17.all you need to know is that Alec/ST is the Avatar of the Green and Animal Mans daughter is the Avatar of the red.

I just did a litlte research on Animal Man. I might check him the series out once I've got a few others out of the way. Is it really good or were you just recommending it because it coincides with Swamp Thing? The character (Animal Man) seems really.. cheesy in design? I don't know, for some reason despite his powers being quite interesting he isn't that appealing. If it's worth a read though I might check it out. That picture you just posted he doesn't look bad at all. Reminds me of Havok from X-Men or something, heh.

So I don't even think they've explained what the "red" is yet in the comics I'm reading. I've been guessing it's the animal side of things, I just assumed it was blood which obviously leads to that conclusion. That explains Animal-Man. I didn't look him up when I read that the Annual issue was included, I'd figure I'll just get there when I get there. I'm pretty geeked though about getting into comics again.. last time I read them I was about 10 and now I'm 28. Next week I'll be going to Motorcity Comic-Con.. never been there so it ought to be interesting.

Damn Wish I could go to Motor city but I have no car and Novi is a couple hours out from Detroit.

Animal Man is legit good and is better than swamp thing at times. It recently ended so wait for the last trade and read the whole series Think of the red as the life version of the Green, its anything with blood that lives hence why animal man has the fancy animal powers.

If you like the Supernatural like Swamp thing the new 52 has a ton of it.

The trailer for the constantine series.

That actually looks pretty good, I will definitely tune in. I loved the movie and didn't even know it was based on a comic when I first saw it. Still haven't read any Constantine comics, I was never really big on DC stuff aside from some Batman and Swamp Thing as a kid. I actually have House Of Secrets with the first appearance of Swamp Thing in decent condition.

I was curious to see if Swamp Thing was ever included in anything like Justice League and in my search I found out about the Justice League Dark and how he made an appearance in that. Is JLD a good series? It seems like it would be pretty good. I don't know much about the characters aside from Constantine.. but Zatanna seems cool.

I might check out Animal Man next if I can find the recent tbp's for a good deal. I just want the same run that coincides with the Swamp Thing. I bought the 3 swamp thing TBP's at the store for full price ($50 total) and then today I seen them on ebay altogether $16.00 starting bid and ends in two hours. I looked thoroughly before I went to the store, too.. so that's annoying. Oh well.

@Platypus

Here you go. http://www.ebay.com/itm/SWAMP-THING-Volumes-1-3-The-NEW-52-/1...

I thought about checking out Batman Eternal. I've heard it's really good so far... The only currently running series that I'm checking out right now is (it isn't DC) Moon Knight and Iron Fist. I have the first few issues of them sitting with me right now. I'd preferably like to get into some other current starting series as well. I ordered Ultimate-Spiderman #1 to check out what the fuss about Miles Morales is without buying into the whole Amazing series. I mainly wanted to read the Scott Snyder Swamp Thing run so I can catch up and get into the current Swamp Thing run, but I'm probably going to have to wait for the TBP's of that as well, unless I can find all the comics in one place at a good price.

Eternal is fairly good. It's a little slow in some issues, but looks like it will pay off. It's actually one of the few comics I'm buying. Other than Batman Eternal I'm only getting Moon Knight, and Black Science.

Anyone else counting down the days 'till the Arrow season finale? I want to see it so bad, but I don't want the season to be over.

Man, with Flash, Arrow, SHIELD, Constantine, and maybe Gotham, this fall is going to be a dream come true for comic book fans.

Read the first issue of Black Science but nearly everything indie with a few expections I'm trade rating. Going to my comic shop to get lumberjanes #1, Bee and Puppycat, and to pre-order death vigil.

@shingi_70 The costume looks really good! I like how it is more of a spandex look than Bale's. Bale's suit was pretty sweet, but it just wasn't comic booky enough for me. I think the only thing I don't like about this new costume is how large the bat symbol is on his chest.

Arrow finale was so good. I wished Slade would have stayed powered up but that ending scene on the Island with the supermax prison was awesome.
