Swamp Thing #01: Swamp Thing, Volume 1 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this series from 2000, writer Brian K. Vaughan kicked off a new SWAMP THING series that starred Tefé Holland, daughter of Swamp Thing and Abigail Arcane. As a human/plant elemental hybrid, Tefé has incredible power--but as a hot-headed teenager, can she learn to control those powers and use them for good? Vaughan's sensitive stories send Tefé across the globe to play an unexpected role in remote regions threatened by ecological disasters.

Collects SWAMP THING (2000) #1-10 and a story from VERTIGO: WINTER'S EDGE #3.

Review:

"Eisner Award — winner Vaughan's brilliantly plotted series, launched in 2000, describes the wanderings of Tefé Holland, the daughter of the Swamp Thing, and her human mother, Abby. This volume explores Tefé's origins, and the horrific series of murders that led her on a path of destruction. Caught between the human world and the plant world, Tefé faces outside pressures from Swamp Thing, Abby, the elders of the Green (a plant world that exists inside the human world), and murderous government agents as she tries to sort out who deserves real estate on this planet. A badly scarred Inuit youth and a vegetarian U.S. Army veteran join up with her in facing a series of high-conflict dilemmas. Tefé accidentally alienates a teenage ally and forces a man to choose between his wife and daughter, and she redirects a forest fire to destroy an old wise tree as she engages with topical political issues. The drawing style is explosive and the depictions of the Green intensely detailed. At times it seems that almost everyone in the book is a murderer, and sometimes the storyline is jarringly dense, but overall it's a politically engaged, brutal swim through the mind of a confused young woman."
