This week, we’re diving into the powerful series SWAMP THING! The first episode is definitely worth a watch, but this week’s episodes were selected for their skin-crawling, jaw-dropping moments of sheer terror! In episode 2, Jason Woodrue makes his first appearance, and Abby visits the swamp to learn more about Alec’s “accident”. We then jump to episode 4 to learn about Abby’s haunted past and spend some time with our friend the Blue Devil.
Beyond The Watch-Along:
This week we’re pairing up with the inimitable DC History Club, who is doing their own deep dive into all things Swamp Thing, from their first appearance through Alan Moore’s transformation of Swamp Thing’s identity, all the way into the character’s modern telling by Tom King. Supplemented with polls, interviews, and analysis, this is one swim through the swamp you won’t want to miss!
