Barbara (stonedgorgon) | 9 comments This is a bit of a retro-review, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

This is an exceptional collection of stories with the final issues culminating in a DC mystical crossover that ends on more of a question mark than anything else. Perhaps that's fitting. Personally, I found the individual stories (Windfall, Bogeymen & Ghost Dance) with their complete framework far more satisfying than the overarching Crisis tie-in. In fact, the stand-alone issues reminded me strongly of genre serials like "Tales from the Crypt" and "Twilight Zone".

There are also some nice interactions between Swamp Thing & John Constantine in this book that really flesh out the characters. Definitely worth a read if you are a classic Hellblazer or new Constantine fan.

Rating: 4/5 Psychotropic Tubers

Dan (booknooknoggin) | 15 comments Sounds great...I'll have to check it out. I've been reading Hellblazer and Moore Swamp Thing volumes lately.
