DC Universe's Swamp Thing Series

You can check out the trailer below, along with a brief synopsis and a reveal video that was shared last week.

Len Wein, Long Beach Comic Con 2013

As the co-creator of (among others) the Swamp Thing, Nightcrawler, Colossus, Storm, and most notably, Wolverine, Len Wein’s imprint upon the comics universe has been huge. An artist, editor, and of course, legendary writer, Wein continues to make his mark in comics, as well as television, having worked on the critically acclaimed Batman: The Animated Series, as well as the massively popular Ben 10series. Wein’s currently involved with new work for Marvel Comics, as well as a number of other media projects.

I had the opportunity to chat with this legendary comics writer during the Long Beach Comic Con. Wein discussed his beginnings, his editorial and television work, and offered insights on the changing industry.

Swamp Thing Earth Day Sale

Swamp Thing is a character who blurs the lines of regular man who looks like a monster, a straight up piece of vegetation that looks sort of like a man, and both of things but also an eco-terrorist of sorts, but no matter how you view the character, it’s impossible to deny the fact that some of the greatest writers in comics have either written him or his ancillary characters. Also, when he’s not questioning his identity, he’s a pretty eco-friendly dude. So, it’s with this fact that Comixology is offering a 99 cent three-day sale on Swamp Thing for this weekend’s Earth Day.

Comixology has recently made these sales more manageable if you don’t exactly know what you’re looking for and have places different comics into sections that categorize them more efficiently than just, “Here’s a bunch of comics that are on sale.” These different sections for Swamp Thing are:

Swamp Thing

While doing a conference for the new Kate Beckinsale movie, Whiteout, mega-producer Joel Silver was asked about what projects he might have coming up and his thoughts on the new and improved 3-D technology that’s sweeping the business. Collider was attending the conference, and reports that Silver revealed that he does in fact have a project that he’s held the rights to for a period of time now, and that he believes would be perfect for the 3-D treatment. That movie: Swamp Thing!

Swamp Thing is a DC Comics character created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson that was turned into a 1982 horror/superhero movie of the same name that was written and directed by Wes Craven. It told the tale of a scientist who was transformed into a half man, half swamp life being after a lab accident. After the accident, he eventually moves into the swamp and begins fighting the various threats to his new environment. A sequel called The Return of Swamp Thing was released in 1987, but wasn’t received as well — though many would say Swamp Thing himself looked a-lot more bad-ass in the sequel.
