Jeff Lemire Takes On The Swamp Thing With New Three Issue Series From DC Black Label

by Olly MacNamee

This December writer Jeff Lemire (Sweet Tooth) returns to his beloved horror genre with Swamp Thing Green Hell, a three issue DC Black Label prestige format series featuring everyone’s favourite muck monster, Swamp Thing.

Joining him on art duties is Doug Mahnke no stranger to horror himself, in an out-of-continuity post-apocalyptic environmental tale of terror:

“The Earth is all but done. The last remnants of humanity cling to a mountaintop island lost in endless floodwater. The Parliaments of the Green, the Red, and the Rot all agree: it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start the cycle of life over again. And to do so, they’ve united their powers to summon an avatar—one of the most horrific monsters to ever stalk the surface of this forsaken planet. Against a creature like that, there can be no fighting back…unless you have a soldier who understands the enemy. Someone who has used its tactics before. Someone like Alec Holland. Shame he’s been dead for decades…”

Swamp Thing Green Hell #1 will be available Tuesday December 28th from DC Comics/DC Black Label
