The Saga of the Swamp Thing 12 (1983)
And Yet It Lives
We last see Swamp Thing plummeting over an icy cliff with the Golem dead set on killing him.
Swampy makes short work of the Golem
Back ar their hotel, Barclay and Liz are assaulted by Grasp (the Conclave henchman). They are able to escape his clutches and make their way to Swamp Thing, Kay and the crew.
And just like that, the Golem is back.
Kay gives a pep talk to his crew. Everyone looks less than excited. They really should make a reliable vehicle adequate for a Swamp Thing. He doesn’t have much room back there
The crew track down Karen at the Synagogue, as planned.
Through a great deal of inner turmoil, Swamp Thing winds up taking matters into his own hands.
While psionic death rays are set to full-blast, Swamp Thing turns Karen into a pretzel leaving us to believe, temporarily, that evil has been dealt with.
The evil spirit/Karen leaves one vessel for another
The issue comes to a head on a windy bridge. The whole crew is back together with the Conclave agents close by, ready to strike. The evil spirit has taken hold of Liz and begins to teleport everyone to it’s evil layer.
Note: knowing who Grasp actually is, I’m not sure why he is shown pointing a gun at the evil spirit
Grasp is codename 666…
Well, you can’t please everyone. For the most part, the letters page is a tough read at the start of series two. Everyone criticizes Pasko and Yeats, Looking for what Wrightson and Wein put into the character.
