Official Press Release
On November 3, retailers will receive a free 50% overship of the latest issue of VERTIGO's hit series SWAMP THING. Overship quantities are based on initial orders only.
SWAMP THING #9 (SEP040394) features the debut of new writer Joshua Dysart (Violent Messiahs), who joins regular series artist Enrique Breccia with the 4-part story "Love in Vain."
"Josh was made to write SWAMP THING," says Karen Berger, VP - Executive Editor, VERTIGO. "He's totally in sync with the characters and spirit of the book, and deftly delivers the horror, intelligence, and personal themes that are the hallmarks of the series. I couldn't be happier with his direction, and I'm certain that readers will instantly respond to the excitement and passion of his clever and wonderfully strange stories."
"Josh Dysart is off to a compelling start. Readers who have followed the new series so far won't want to miss his debut," says Bob Wayne, DC's VP - Sales & Marketing. "Also, this issue makes a great jumping-on point for readers who enjoy SWAMP THING and other VERTIGO horror series, so we're making sure that retailers will have plenty of copies for their shelves."
