Unless you've been living underneath a rock (or at the bottom of the bayou), you've probably heard that DC Universe's latest original show, Swamp Thing, is premiering this Friday, May 31st. Are you new to Swampy? We've got you covered with lots of helpful reading listsretrospective articles, and comic collections to make you an expert in no time. Tune in on Friday when the swamp's secrets are revealed!

 

 

DC UNIVERSE'S SUMMER SUPERCATION HAS BEGUN

Summer is finally here, which means it's time for a road trip! We're piling in the car (does Bruce Wayne have a Bat-version of the ol' family truckster?) and hitting some of the hottest vacation spots the DC Universe has to offer over the next 6 weeks -- in our DC Universe Summer Supercation! Each stop will come loaded with plenty of polls, articles, and comic collections that highlight the best (and worst!) each location has to offer. Our first stop is Swamp Thing's Bayou! It's a place filled with mystery and horror behind each ominously rustling willow tree, so choose your next steps carefully

 

 

LAST CHANCE TO WATCH

Alas, it's the end of the month, which means that a handful of animated movies are leaving DC Universe, so be sure to watch the films in the following list by Friday, May 31st!

 

 

 

BINGE DOOM PATROL SWEEPSTAKES

And speaking of endings... The first season of Doom Patrol  has concluded the same way it began...really, really weirdly! To commemorate our favorite bunch of loveable losers, enter our Binge Doom Patrol Sweepstakes, for a chance to win a whole bevy of swag that celebrates both the show and the comics that inspired it. We're not saying you've got a better chance to win if you listen to Chumbawamba on repeat, but it couldn't hurt, could it?

 

 

PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY

Our Community is having a devil of a time in this week's Book Club, reading Blue Devil's eponymous 1984 series before the character appears (as played by Ian Ziering) in DC Universe's Swamp Thing. Plus, if you're really feeling blue, check out this lively thread from Community member @HubCityQuestion, in which he asks which of Earth's heroes would make a great Blue Lantern? Our money might be on Superman -- after all, doesn't his S-shield mean hope? Finally, be sure to check out a thoughtful Memorial Day post from @msgtv commemorating all those who have given their lives in service to our country.
