Greetings and welcome to the third and final week of DCU Book Club - Epics: SWAMP THING(1982-)!
DCUBC-Epics hosts the reading and discussion of complete story arcs. We read approximately two volumes of the story per week.
DCU’s original, live-action series - Swamp Thing - debuts on May 31st. This is an excellent time to (re)read Alan Moore’s critically acclaimed, character-defining run which inspired the series.
This week, we finish the Swamp Thing series with a trip to Gotham… and space! Hmm… what DC characters might we encounter in either of those places?
