If you’re like me, grew up in the 90s you would probably remember the corny tune of the Swamp-Thing Cartoon intro “Swamp-Thing!… You are Amazing!” Good times… Anyway, onto the newer Swamp-Thing series news, the series will debut on DC Universe May 31. The series is based on the DC Comics character of the same name created by writer Len Wein and artist Bernie Wrightson.
Updated Comic Book Library
The addition of what’s called “many thousands [of] single issue comics published over 80 years” will be an ongoing process, with all future DC single issues being added to the service 12 months after print publication, starting in April. The significant upgrade to the digital comics portfolio on the service — which launched last year with a curated selection of single issues — will be added with no price increase, according to DC.
“From the time DC Universe launched last year, our fans have loved the comic experience and have asked us for just one thing – more! The expansion to thousands of titles in January 2019 was a first step in our goal to deliver on that request, to provide DC Universe members full access to the pantheon of DC’s epic Super Hero stories,” DC Universe senior vice president and general manager, Sam Ades, said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to respond to our fans yet again with the incredible value of the ultimate DC digital comics library.”
