This has been such a monumental week for DC Comics. What we launched with (the already sold out!) JUSTICE LEAGUE #1 was absolutely amazing. And what’s more exciting still is that it was just a first taste of what’s to come.
John Constantine enlists the help of Madame Xanadu to find Alec Holland. When he reaches his destination, Constantine comes face to face with Batman and Superman. Will they work together to calm the source of the volatile Green or are there other forces working against them?
On his journey to find Swamp Thing, John Constantine discovers the motive behind the plant elemental’s new brutal and savage behavior: With Alec Holland’s resurrection (in the pages of BRIGHTEST DAY), Swamp Thing finds itself without a human consciousness, and The Green within becomes an uncontrollable force of evil. But as John continues to search for Swamp Thing to get the answers he needs, he realizes that his prey has taken on the role of the predator and is seeking him out as well. Why?
During today’s panel for The Dark and The Edge at SDCC, we premiered art from ANIMAL MAN, BLACKHAWKS, DEATHSTROKE, FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E., JUSTICE LEAGUE DARK, MEN OF WAR, OMAC, RESURRECTION MAN, SUICIDE SQUAD, SWAMP THING, I, VAMPIRE, and VOODOO.

We’re just one month after the announcement of the books in the “Dark” group of DC Comics--The New 52. There's a lot of mystery surrounding these titles and the solicitations for the second issues offer another round of questions to keep fans guessing: Can the Justice League Dark turn against one of their own? Was Alec Holland wrong about Swamp Thing’s origins? What is the S.O.M.B.I.E. appearing in FRANKENSTEIN, AGENT OF S.H.A.D.E.? Will Mitch Shelly, a.k.a. Resurrection Man, find the answers he’s looking for about his past?
