A choice changes two lives forever in ‘Twin Branches’
Swamp Thing is a fascinating comic book character. They have shown up in a few of the DC animated films, and when they do amazing things seem to happen. Reading The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid was a ton of fun, so when I heard about Swamp Thing: Twin Branches I hoped I might get to read it. I was able to get a digital copy of this graphic novel and here is my thoughts on it.
You can read the plot for Twin Branches here:
Twins Alec and Walker Holland have a reputation around town. One is quiet and the other is the life of any party, but the two are inseparable. For their last summer before college, Alec and Walker leave the city to live with their rural cousins, where they find that the swamp holds far darker depths than they could have imagined.
While Walker carves their names into the new social scene, Alec recedes into a summer-school laboratory, slowly losing himself to a deep, dark experiment. This season, both brothers must confront truths, ancient and familial, and as their lives diverge, tensions increase and dormant memories claw to the surface.
This was a really fun graphic novel to read. When we meet these two brothers they couldn’t seem any more different from each other. One is excited for what the summer will bring, while the other just wants to work hard on an experiment. Yet as the summer moves along, things happen that are sure to change both of their lives forever. Fans of this character will want to check this graphic novel out.
