Swamp Thing returns to the world he left behind to find it has gone from Green to Rot.

Poison Ivy might’ve made an unlikely heroine before the Rot, but with sword poised at the throat of the newly returned Swamp Thing, she’s prepared to protect herself and the little that’s left of her Green world. Mistrusting that Swamp Thing is the real Alec Holland, whom she believes fled the world like a coward and left it at the mercy of Anton Arcane and the Rot, Ivy’s partner Deadman verifies that it is, indeed, the true Swamp Thing. Together, they fly off to seek the counsel of a petrified Parliament of Trees, where Holland discovers the truth behind the atrocities that befell the Earth on his and Animal Man’s descent into the heart of the Rot. The truth about everything except the fate of the woman Alec Holland loves –– Abigail Arcane.

This first part of “Rotworld: The Green Kingdom” skillfully sets a stage that will steadily unfurl in subsequent chapters of Animal Man and Swamp Thing. The creative team of Scott Snyder and Yanick Paquette have produced a fertile landscape despite its images of decomposition –– from a Rotling version of the Teen Titans engaging against Alec Holland and a troupe of pseudo Swamp Things to Abby Arcane desperately battling the Rot during a fateful flight back to her homeland in an attempt to stop Anton Arcane before he can conquer the world, and a final page that’ll keep us holding our breath for the next installment of “Rotworld.”
