Read Animal Man and Swamp Thing #9 over the weekend.
Animal Man #9 - Has buddy traveling inside the Rot with The Shepherd(think ferryman from Greek myth) to try and locate the Totems. He needs to talk to them about his daughter Maxine. Meanwhile back on Earth his family is trying to stay ahead of the Rot's army chasing them. This is where John Constantine shows up to help out. A better issue than the last few at least.
Swamp Thing #9 - this series stays on it's high paces. Abigail is back to human form but I suspect will likely continue to have ties to the Rot. The last page teasing the return of Anton Arcane is the big news.
I think it's pretty clear Abby is going to be the new Black Orchid in Justice League Dark since she is not back to normal and they mentioned that Alec freed her via orchid seeds.
