After much trial and error, the elemental entity known as
the Swamp Thing has succeeded in harnessing the life-force
of his successor into the one form with which he can coexist
- a new human soul, to be born of his love Abby (with help

far beyond their intimate world are conspiring to drive them
apart once more - only this time, the resulting distance may
prove to be unbridgeable...
together stories that were originally printed between 1987-88.
If you haven't been keeping abreast of what has been going

really going to appeal to serious Swamp Thing fans.
You may find some slight interest if you are a follower of
Constantine stories through the Hellblazer series,
but to be honest you may find this collection a little hard
to keep up with.
Swamp fans, Infernal
