The latest DC Universe original program premiered last Friday, and people have caught swamp fever! Which sounds deadly, so maybe we should come up with another name? Check out our recap of Swamp Thing's first episode, and then read up on the many echoes from the comic book that ended up in this acclaimed pilot.

 

 

SUMMER SUPERCATION WEEK 2: THEMYSCIRA

Our DC road trip has left Swamp Thing's bayou behind for sunnier, less humid climes. This week, we're stopping in Wonder Woman's Themyscira. Read up on all its famous residents, its mythical history, and then learn to fight like a true Amazon. But be careful! Clear skies and blue water doesn't mean there isn't danger lurking behind every corner on Paradise Island.

 

 

SWAMP THING SWEEPSTAKES

What better way to celebrate the new season of Swamp Thing than entering to win an incredible maquette of the Avatar of the Green himself from Sideshow Collectibles? This big hunk of bayou protector weighs in at more than 50 pounds and is nearly two feet tall. Enter now!

 

 

PILLARS OF THE COMMUNITY

DC Universe is kicking off Pride Week with a book club dedicated to the Midnighter's self-titled 2015 title. If, however, you want to keep things Swampy, check out another book club that's just begun -- on writer Scott Snyder's fondly remembered Swamp Thing run.  Plus, @HubCityQuestion posed a provocative question in our Community when he asked what's the dumbest thing a DC character has ever done? We feel like the Guardians have pulled more than their fair share of boneheaded moves. Check out the thread and let your voice be heard!
