Hamilton County: lush, green, beautiful, and drying up?

Not much seems to be growing on the Smith farm despite heavy rainfall and no drought in the area. Without many options, Superman takes to the skies to find the source of this artificial aridness which may be a lot more than he bargained for.

Deep in a river bed just outside of the County, Dr. Holland, better known as the swamp thing, awaits Superman’s arrival. It appears as though Holland has some pertinent information for Clark. The source of this drought seems to be himself! An anomaly that occurred when the Superman of this world passed has lead to the new Superman absorbing more solar energy to a larger area, causing damage to the planet around him. Holland can help, if Superman can handle what needs to be done. Will the clash between The Swamp Thing and the Man if Steel bring this plight to an end? Answers Superman can only find deep in the green…

This has been a fantastic issue and some absolutely mind-blowing artwork. The fusion panels alone might have been some of the best artwork I have seen in a comic in a long time! Beautifully crafted story that addresses an issue that has been bugging me since Rebirth’s beginning; which world does this Superman actually belong to? An amazing tale and I would recommend it to anyone!
