Swamp Thing Protector of the Green



Each generation, the Green selects an avatar to serve as its protector--the Swamp Thing. But Doctor Alec Holland doesn't want it. When the forces between life and death go to war, he may not have a choice. #1 New York Times bestselling author Scott Snyder's entire comics opus is collected in its entirety here!

For eons, Earth's safety has depended on a balance of three great powers: the Green, the force that unites all plant life; the Red, the force of all animal life; and the Rot, the force of death.

Each generation, the Green selects an avatar to serve as its protector--the Swamp Thing. But Dr. Alec Holland, the Green's current champion, isn't interested in being Swamp Thing.

Meanwhile the Rot's avatar is growing stronger, and the servants of decay are gaining ground. If Alec doesn't return to his duties soon, there might not be any Green left to protect...

Collects Swamp Thing #1-11 from writer Scott Snyder (Dark Nights: Metal) and artist Yanick Paquette (Wonder Woman: Earth One), with an introduction by Swamp Thing co-creator Len Wein.
