THE SAGA OF THE SWAMP THING LIVES ON!
Dr. Alec Holland was a brilliant scientist who was developing a bio-restorative formula that would rejuvenate plant life. When he died, he was reborn as the Swamp Thing, the avatar of the Green.
As champion and protector of all plants on the planet, Swamp Thing has access to untold power. But such power also attracts danger.
In this daring new reinterpretation, Swamp Thing is put to the ultimate test when he faces several challenges that push the limits of his abilities. There’s the Rot, the kingdom of death and decay that is hell-bent on destroying all life on Earth. Anton Arcane, his archnemesis, has also returned from the grave yet again. When another contender for the role of avatar of the Green steps forth, the creature who was once Alec Holland is forced to defend the mantle that he has grudgingly learned to accept. And just when you thought that the Green had its hands full with the Red and the Rot, yet another kingdom, the Machines, declares war.
