As the Swamp Thing tries to get on with his life, a mysterious woman named Anna hopes to get on with her death.
A writer by trade, Anna longs to drown her sorrows in a watery grave. But her brilliant stories won’t let her rest until she finishes telling them—and the Swamp Thing is their missing masterpiece. Now the avatar of the Green must ride its currents into a series of strange new worlds—warped realities that exist nowhere except in Anna’s troubled mind: a New Orleans where the dead walk and black magic rules; an America that lost World War II and is reborn as a republic of horror; and a swamp where a former superhero learns a terrible secret.
Waiting at the end of this river of stories is a force that could drown the Swamp Thing—and the world—in a final flood of darkness.
Comics superstar Mark Millar and a parliament of comics’ finest artists—including Phil Hester, Kim DeMulder, Chris Weston, Jill Thompson and Phil Jimenez—present SWAMP THING: DARKER GENESIS, a tour de force of imaginative power collecting issues #151-160 of the original VERTIGO series.
