Discover the Destiny of the DC Universe! What is Swamp Thing’s Obsidian Sun?

By | December 4, 2020

Welcome to DC Future State, a two-month extravaganza that reveals what lays in store for the World’s Greatest Heroes! Spinning out of the finale of Dark Nights: Death Metal #7 (on sale January 5), DC Future State will take you on a journey from the near future to the end of time to witness the destinies of heroes like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Justice League, the Teen Titans, and so many more.

In FUTURE STATE: SWAMP THING #1, from the ashes of a terrible war, life blooms anew in Swamp Thing’s image. The remnants of humanity lie in hiding, forever in the shadow of the green god who now rules the planet. When the new avatar of the Green uncovers a stray human, a rebellion is revealed! But this Swamp Thing is no stranger to violent ends, and neither are his creations. If it’s war humanity wants, it will be at their doorstep—and Swamp Thing will never be the same!

FUTURE STATE: SWAMP THING #1 (of 2), “Obsidian Sun,” written by Ram V. with art and cover by Mike Perkins colors are by June Chung and letters are by Aditya Bidikar and a card stock variant cover by Dima Ivanov, hits shelves January 5.
