Swampy reminds me of the fellow from the black lagoon.
No where in this issue does Batman climb a tree.

“Mossy man-brute” is much softer on Swampy’s ego

Based on this panel and the transitive property of logic,  Selena Kyle should have a firm grasp of who Batman is.

I love the composition of this panel.

I believe Swamp Thing is trying to see how long he can hold his breath.

Rudely interrupted, he takes  control of the situation.

Batman arrives just in time only to be shot down accidentally.
Swampy and Batman are knocked unconscious. When Swamp Thing comes to, he is a bit disoriented.

I found this panel to be interesting for two reasons. One, Swamp Thing is being a jerk in not helping Batman and two, Batman calls the corpse “it”. I don’t think Batman is being cold but he does seem detached, maybe focused on busting the bad guys.

As you can see, Swamp Thing does a lot of talking in this book.

… And specters with clues!

Batman is not happy with Swampy’s delta clue but he’s a detective, he can handle it.

Batman enjoys a good surprise.

Swamp Thing enjoys double fisted smash attacks.

It seems that every Swamp Thing/Batman appearance ends with a wave goodbye.

Permanent oblivion is a tough road to walk. What does Swamp Thing encounter in the last page? Get the book!
