“So we're finally here - the moment Jeff Lemire and I have been building towards since day one on these two crazy books we're writing, ANIMAL MAN and SWAMP THING.
To say this is the culmination of our year long stories on these books would be an understatement. This moment is the culmination - the Rot, Arcane, The Hunters Three all have led us here - but it's also the start of something even bigger. Because in Rotworld, you'll get to see the DCu completely transformed by the Rot. You'll see which of your favorite heroes and villains survived the Rot's invasion (not many, we're afraid). And you'll get to see which have been overtaken and transformed by the Rot. You'll get to see Gotham, Metropolis - this is the whole DCu, but rotten.
Swampy and Buddy will face impossible odds, and will have to bring everything they've learned over the past year to bear against the figureheads of the Rot in this world. They'll travel by land, sea and air. They'll meet friends and enemies transformed. And most importantly, at the end, they'll come face to face with their own greatest fears about themselves. This story will push them like nothing you've seen, and when it's over, both books will be forever changed.
It's been a wild year in for these characters, and we can't thank you all enough for all the support. It means the world to all of us on ANIMAL MAN and SWAMP THING. And we promise, the best - and wildest - is coming right now, in Rotworld."
