ROOTS OF THE SWAMP THING
The tales that made Swamp Thing a fan-favorite are collected in trade paperback! Featuring the first appearance from HOUSE OF SECRETS #92, along with SWAMP THING #1-13 and moody art by legendary artist Bernie Wrightson.
SWAMP THING #12
The horrifying conclusion of the 4-part "Love in Vain." Arcane has learned a few new tricks during his stay in Heaven. With the power of The Light under his control, even Swamp Thing may not be able to stop him...not without paying an unimaginable price.
SWAMP THING #14
Concluding the 2-part story "Measure of Faith," featuring guest art by Timothy Green II (FRACTION) and a chilling cover by John Totleben. Swamp Thing discovers the terrible secret of the Riverside preacher, and it could cost everything for Jake's father.
SWAMP THING #16
"Healing the Breach" Part 2 of 4. While Swamp Thing battles a strange bio-tech invader in the Green, Professor Schiller gives up his conscious mind and commits to reliving the final days of his relationship with Alec Holland's first wife, Linda. Out in the Gulf of Mexico, a strange uncurling beast living at the bottom of the polluted "Dead Zone" begins to rise. The Louisiana storm season has begun.
SWAMP THING #11
"Love in Vain" Part 3 of 4. Arcane and his demon paramour Josephine have adopted new, more dangerous forms. Still, Arcane wants Josephine to gain the powers of an elemental, and that means his designs are set on the hospitalized Tefé. Can Swamp Thing stop Arcane's attack? Or will his rage get the better of him when he catches sight of Abigail in a passionate embrace with her new lover Jake?
SWAMP THING #13
Part 1 of the astonishing 2-part story "Measure of Faith," featuring guest art by Timothy Green II (FRACTION) and a gripping cover by legendary SWAMP THING illustrator John Totleben. With Swamp Thing struggling to make sense of his shattered life and Houma recovering from all the horrors of its past spilling up from the depths of Hell, a strange "preacher" appears, offering a macabre salvation to the town's people. But his true agenda may be too frightening to contemplate.
SWAMP THING #15
Artist Enrique Breccia returns for Part 1 of the 4-part tale "Healing the Breach." A forgotten figure from Alec Holland's early years appears in the swamp, seeking healing and perhaps redemption. And it may not be mere coincidence that his visit comes at a time when the waters of Louisiana face an ecological threat such as no one has ever encountered — not even Swamp Thing.
SWAMP THING #17
"Healing the Breach" Part 3 of 4. Why do the strange bio-mech invaders in the infected Green look so similar to the sea monster who dwells in the trenches of the poisoned Mexico basin? Swamp Thing, carried by the raging autumn storm waters, rushes towards the Gulf of Mexico "wound" and into the embrace of a mystery.
