Swamp Thing: Roots of Terror
Swamp Thing: Roots of Terror
Well-known writers Tom King (Batman, Heroes in Criris) and Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned, Joker) pay tribute to the legendary creators of Swamp Thing as they join forces for earth-shattering Swamp Thing tales that will send chills down your spine!
From some of comics' greatest writers and artists comes a collection of horrifying tales by the bayou that will warm the heart and haunt the soul. Swamp Thing: Roots of Terror is a celebration of one of comics' most acclaimed characters and his legendary creators, Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson.
New York Times best-selling and Eisner Award-winning writer Tom King (Mister Miracle, Batman) and acclaimed artist Jason Fabok (Detective Comics, Justice League) present "The Talk of the Saints," a story of Swamp Thing shepherding a lost boy through a winter wasteland as a monster hunts them at every turn.
From New York Times best-selling and Eisner Award-winning writer Brian Azzarello (Batman: Damned, Joker) and New York Times best-selling artist Greg Capullo (Dark Nights: Metal, Batman) comes "Hollow." On Halloween, the barrier between worlds grows thin, and only Swamp Thing can face the monsters coming from the other side.
Eisner-nominated writer Mark Russell (The Flintstones, Exit Stage Left: The Snagglepuss Chronicles) and National Comics Award-winning artist Frazer Irving (Batman and Robin, Uncanny X-Men) tell a story of love gained and lost for Swamp Thing in "Heart-Shaped Box."
From New York Times best-selling writer Tim Seeley (Grayson, The Hellblazer) and superstar artist Kyle Hotz (Incredible Hulk, The Goon) comes "The Spread," a horrifying tale of Swamp Thing in the face of an experiment gone wrong.
And presenting "Spring Awakening," the final story from Len Wein, co-creator of Swamp Thing, with Eisner Award-winning artist Kelley Jones (The Sandman, Batman).
Beyond these tales of shock, horror and love, Swamp Thing: Roots of Terror features a brand-new introduction by photographer, lawyer, creative rights activist and widow of comic book legend Len Wein, Christine Valada. She presents a treasure trove of never-before-seen artwork from the making of these already-classic tales and scripts from Len Wein, Tom King and Mark Russell.
Collects Swamp Thing Winter Special #1 and stories from Swamp Thing Halloween Horror Giant #1, Young Monsters in Love #1 and Cursed Comics Cavalcade #1.
