really liked it
Read in June, 2001 , read count: Once

This isn't so much a review, rather a rebuttal of what I've been reading in other reviews. Namely, Swamp Thing being a "dumb", "goofy", and "pointless" character. Obviously these people haven't read any Swamp Thing outside of Moore's run, simply because it has the man's name on it. I suggest that these people read Len Wein's original eight page story that appeared in House of Secrets #92. I found it much more touching when Swamp Thing COULDN'T express his love to Linda after he saves her life. She just thinks he's a monster. And the Wein/Wrightson series was not bad by any means. That's not knocking Alan Moore's run, but it disheartens me to see people knocking the character like this.
