^Well thats a good thing. As much I enjoyed the beginning of the Swamp Thing story it has just seemed to drag on for the past couple issues. A new story would be appreciated.

IMO it was more due to Snyder and Lemire's writing not really gelling together. It probably would have been better if it just focused on them fighting the Rot separately instead of the Rotworld stuff. And I'd would have also liked more Abby as the Rot avatar stuff.

Re: DC's New 52: Reviews and Discussion (Spoilers welcolme and likely)

I dived back into Batwoman for the Wonder Woman team-up. The title remains solid; as many have said, the Diana here is closer to the one in her own title, not the blank pinup doll in JLA. But the art ... I don't even know what to say about it anymore. Each double-page seems more miraculous than the last.

I was worried about the change of writer on Demon Knights, but to be honest - for whatever reason, though I suspect editorial shenanigans - Cornell's run ended with a whimper after the breakneck weirdness of the first year. Now Venditti is bringing in the vampires, and some very specific plot beats from the lamentably-cancelled I, Vampire. This issue (16) seemed more focused than the last few, and the 30-year jump is really effective. The story seems Amazon-centric, which might promise answers about Exoristos.

Interesting business trying to reconcile several titles which are speaking to Amazon issues, given the polarized reactions to Azarello's version of them.
