One of DC’s most compelling characters is reborn for a new era in this collection of game-changing Swamp Thing stories, headlined by comic book superstars Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette!
Swamp Thing has long been one of DC’s most compelling characters, a stoic and tragic defender of the natural world, who starred in the revolutionary Saga of the Swamp Thing series written by Alan Moore.
In 2011, as part of DC’s “New 52” initiative that gave fresh starts to the company’s biggest characters, writer Scott Snyder and artist Yanick Paquette brought new creative energy to Swamp Thing, reinventing the character for the current age.
Since the dawn of time, the planet’s safety has depended on maintaining a balance of three great powers: the Green, the force that unites all plant life; the Red, the force that unites all animal life; and the Rot, the force of death. Each generation, the Green selects an avatar to serve as its protector–the Swamp Thing. But Dr. Alec Holland, the Green’s newest champion, is no longer interested in the role. The Rot’s own avatar is growing stronger, and servants of decay gain more territory every day. If Alec doesn’t return to his duties soon, there might not be any Green left to protect.
