Swipe File – Swamp Thing 6 And Batman 5 SPOILERS

Scott Snyder writes both Batman and Swamp Thing for DC Comics, as part of the New 52 relaunch of the DC Universe.

But in the past couple of weeks, it seems like he can only come up with one cliffhanger for the both of them.

Okay, as the title and the visual says, there are spoilers ahead. Both for Batman #5 and Swamp Thing #6. If you are planning to read either, you may want to return after reading the issues in question.

If not, maybe this will inspire you to check them out.

Or maybe you just get off on spoilers. It’s a recognised condition, apparently.

Here’s the end of Batman #5 from last week.

And here’s the end of Swamp Thing #6 from this week.

It’s a very clever book, with lots of stunning storytelling techniques, and a true painful ache of loss at its core. But dammit Snyder, come up with a different ending for your different titles. Unless of course you’re doing it on purpose…

I’ve said too much.

UPDATE: Scott Snyder has tweeted “What can I say? I love impaling :)”
