The legendary Swamp Thing has resurfaced for a new age--just as a new force threatens to rot away all life on Earth! 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. 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. Brought to you by the superstar team of critically acclaimed writer Scott Snyder (Dark Nights: Metal, Batman) and artist Yanick Paquette (Wonder Woman: Earth One). Includes Swamp Thing #0-18 and Annual #1 and Animal Man #12, #17. The DC Essential Edition series of graphic novels highlights the best standalone stories the medium has to offer, featuring comics' greatest characters. These trade paperback editions focus on the easiest entry points DC has in its vast library, with seminal, ground-breaking tales that transcend the printed page. Start with the Essentials.
