Almost one year ago, we found out that a live-action Swamp Thing series was in the works for DC’s streaming service DC Universe.
Now a teaser trailer has been released for the series, which is based on the DC characters written and drawn by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson. And if you’re a fan of horror, it’s something you’re definitely going to want to see.
You can check out the trailer below, along with a brief synopsis and a reveal video that was shared last week.
Bernie Wrightson, the comic book artist and illustrator who co-created the character Swamp Thing, died today after a long battle with brain cancer, according to his wife Liz, who posted the news to his official site. He was 68.
Born on October 27, 1948, in Baltimore, Maryland, the artist was best known for co-creating along with writer Len Wein the DC Comics character Swamp Thing in 1971 (its first appearance was in House of Secrets #92 and illustrating the Swamp Thing comic book series in the early 1970s.
Creepy Archives, Volume 18, covers issues 84-88 of the original magazine series, wherein each issues had a theme. For instance, #84 was an “all sports issue,” which while an odd fit on the surface, worked surprisingly well. “All monster” stories was the focus of #85. The next two were Christmas and Mars-themed, with issue #88 being a free-for-all smorgasbord of stories.
Overall, these Creepy Archive collections are blasts from the past, when seemingly all comics seemed more a bit more wondrous, even innocent “” including the horror ones. This volume features art from some of the big, and not so big names of yesteryear, with quality craftsmanship being a key element that they have in common.
