Announced out of CCXP this afternoon, a brand new Swamp Thing comic book series is headed our way courtesy of DC Comics, brought to our attention by writer Ram V on Twitter.
Ram tweets, “The word’s out! I’m writing a new Swamp Thing series @dccomics in 2021 with Mike Perkins on art, @SpicerColor on colours and @adityab on letters. An absolute pleasure to say #SwampThing #1 drops in March, hot on the heels of Future State.”
A writer for DC, Marvel and Image, Ram V’s previous DC work includes issues of Justice League Dark, Catwoman and the Legend of the Swamp Thing Halloween Spectacular.
First up is the aforementioned Future State: Swamp Thing, which launches in January 2021.
The official synopsis for the first issue in the two-part series teases, “From the ashes of a terrible war, life blooms anew in Swamp Thing’s image. The remnants of humanity lie in hiding, forever in the shadow of the green god who now rules the planet. When the new avatar of the Green uncovers a stray human, a rebellion is revealed! But this Swamp Thing is no stranger to violent ends, and neither are his creations. If it’s war humanity wants, it will be at their doorstep—and Swamp Thing will never be the same!”
