Lemire + Mahnke send Swamp Thing to ‘Green Hell’ in December

Alec Holland fights for the last humans alive in the new Black Label miniseries.

Jeff Lemire, Doug Mahnke and David Baron will take Swamp Thing to the end of the world in a new DC Black Label series, as Alec Holland fights for the fate of humanity in Swamp Thing: Green Hell.

The three-issue “prestige” series will debut Dec. 28.

Lemire said the project gives him the chance to work with one of his “all time” favorite artists, as they chronicle humanity’s last gasp after environmental catastrophe:

The Earth is all but done. The last remnants of humanity cling to a mountaintop island lost in endless floodwater. The Parliaments of the Green, the Red, and the Rot all agree: it’s time to wipe the slate clean and start the cycle of life over again. And to do so, they’ve united their powers to summon an avatar—one of the most horrific monsters to ever stalk the surface of this forsaken planet. Against a creature like that, there can be no fighting back…unless you have a soldier who understands the enemy. Someone who has used its tactics before. Someone like Alec Holland. Shame he’s been dead for decades…

Here’s a look at Christian Ward’s variant cover:

And here’s an interior panel by Mahnke:
