SDCC CONversations: An Interview with Charles Soule

Many comic book writers out there dream of writing a series for The New 52. But Charles Soule isn’t writing a New 52 comic. He’s writing three of them. After making his New 52 debut in April, 2013 with SWAMP THING #19, Charles soon joined the Green Lantern universe as the new writer of Red Lanterns before announcing his upcoming (and highly anticipated) Superman/Wonder Woman ongoing.

We sat down with Charles at San Diego Comic-Con to ask him a few questions about his suddenly very full slate.

Exclusive Cover Reveal: SWAMP THING #19

When we solicited our DC COMICS-THE NEW 52 titles for April, we only showed the first side of each gatefold cover. Well the time has finally come to start seeing what’s on the other half of these exciting pieces of art!

Today, THE SOURCE has your exclusive first look at the full cover for SWAMP THING #19, featuring one of the biggest heroes of the DC Universe. Can Swamp Thing survive a battle against a villain and a hero?

Tuesday Roundup: March 5th

People are still talking about the aftermath of last week’s BATMAN, INCORPORATED #8, and we can certainly understand why. But if you were expecting an emotional breather after that shocking turn of events, think again. Last month marked the conclusion of the crossover storyline, “Rotworld,” but that doesn’t mean the story’s over. In this week’s ANIMAL MAN #18 and SWAMP THING #18 (which also serves as Scott Snyder’s final issue as series writer), we discover the heartbreaking fallout from Anton Arcane’s attack on the living world.

Scott Snyder and Jeff Lemire Discuss The End of “Rotworld”

For months, the two elemental sides of life in the DC Universe – the Red and the Green – have been coming together to defeat the Rot. This month, issues #17 of ANIMAL MAN and SWAMP THING serve as the official “Rotworld” finales. And in March, issues #18 of both series will be “Rotworld” epilogues, marking the ultimate conclusion for this monumental crossover event.

 

But what kinds of repercussions will the grand finale of “Rotworld” have on ANIMAL MAN and SWAMP THING?
