After much trial and error, the elemental entity known as the Swamp Thing has succeeded in harnessing the life-force of his successor into the one form with which he can coexist - a new human soul, to be born of his love Abby (with help from the sardonic magus John Constantine). But even as the couple begin preparing for their impending domesticity, forces far beyond their intimate world are conspiring to drive them apart once more - only this time, the resulting distance may prove to be unbridgeable...

Infernal Triangles collects together stories that were originally printed between 1987-88. If you haven't been keeping abreast of what has been going on in this universe you might be in for a bit of a shock. Also, as there is no textual opening to this collection - putting the events into some sort of context within the Swamp Thing universe - you might find it a little hard to get into.

I'm stating the obvious here, I know, but this collection is only really going to appeal to serious Swamp Thing fans. You may find some slight interest if you are a follower of Constantine stories through the Hellblazer series, but to be honest you may find this collection a little hard to keep up with.

For Swamp fans, Infernal Triangles pushes the envelope on what has gone before and helps to blossom the characters' paths into something far more interesting than you'll be expecting.
