DC Announces New Swamp Thing Book Spinning Out Of Future State

A New Guardian Of The Green

Appearing in DC’s Justice League Dark written by Ram V, Swamp Thing is getting a new ongoing series from the same writer next year joined by artist Mike Perkins. Here’s a few details from The Hollywood Reporter…

DC’s muck monster is making a comeback; announced during the DC Future State: Justice League Family panel at the virtual CCXP Worlds convention Friday afternoon, the publisher will be launching a new Swamp Thing series in the first quarter of 2021.

The new series will come from the creative team of Ram V (Justice League DarkThese Savage Shores) and Mike Perkins, and spin out of the two-issue Future State: Swamp Thing mini-series by the same creators launching in January; that series, part of the Future State publishing event, takes place in a distant future where the Swamp Thing has to deal with an uprising against nature by the few humans left alive.

Future State, announced in October, is a line-wide publishing event replacing DC’s regular superhero comic book line for January and February, with new titles set in the future of DC’s multiverse. In a statement accompanying the announcement, DC editor in chief Marie Javins said, “some savvy readers will not only pick up on some of the breadcrumbs that have already been tossed out in our current titles, but they will also find new hints and clues of what’s to come in 2021.”

Swamp Thing, created in 1971 by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson for House of Secrets No. 92, has been a mainstay of DC’s line ever since; the 1980s Saga of the Swamp Thing series was the title that made Watchmen writer Alan Moore’s reputation in the U.S., with creators such as Mark Millar, Brian K. Vaughan, and Scott Snyder handling the character in other series. Most recently, the character has been appearing in Justice League Dark, written by Ram V.

The writer confirmed the news on Twitter, adding more information about the ongoing title’s creative team; he and Perkins will be joined by Mike Spicer on colours and Aditya Bidikar on letters.
