Woodrue explains that when the earth got tired of humanity, it sent the Swamp Thing to destroy it. However, Swamp Thing denies it was him and a close look at the creature in the 2nd panel reveals it to be the same devilish looking horned Swamp Thing we saw briefly on page 4 from issue #1.
The art here is fantastic, especially the terrifying image of Obsidian in panel 5 and the great closeup of Woodrue in the 6th panel!
