iFanboy Video Podcast
The big return of Swamp Thing has happened, and the DC Universe will feel the effect. But what does it mean? Who is this guy? What's the big Swamp Thing story?
We talk about the origins of Swamp Thing over the years, and get in depth with Alan Moore's Saga of the Swamp Thing, the seminal run from the 80's, looking over the rereleased hardcovers. We talk about Alec Holland and Abby Cable and the main mage himself, John Constantine, who is inextricably tied to the swamp elemental himself. Accompanied by Stephen Bissette, John Totelben, Rick Vietch, and others, it's a timelessly beautiful comic book run.
We also explore Swamp Thing's role in the world of superheroes in the past, and where he fits in with the DCU now. Having been relegated to Vertigo for a long time, will the character fit with the characters of today? Brightest Day #23 brought the bog man back, and Brightest Day #24 showed us what he can do, but we look at the precedents for this as well.
Comics history, like that of the Green, goes way back, and it just might all fit together. Please…. sit back and… enjoy… this episode.
