ECCC: Swamp Thing Headed to Tom King’s and Mitch Gerads ‘Batman’

Monkeys Fighting Robots

Swamp Thing is finally coming to the new Batman series, reports The Batman/Swamp Thing pairing was originally intended for release in January. It will now come in this May’s “Batman” #23, as revealed by penciler Mitch Gerads on Saturday afternoon during the DC Comics: Essential panel at Emerald City Comicon in Seattle.

The solicitation reads:

 STREETS AND SWAMPS! Swamp Thing comes to Gotham City with a mysterious request for Batman—but these longtime allies will have to make up for lost time and work together in order to confront a growing threat that only they can stop!

This bit of news is exciting for me as one of my earliest comic book memories was finding a copy of Brave and The Bold #176 at a mom and pop drugstore when I was a kid. And Batman continues to be one of the best of the Rebirth relaunch titles.

What do you guys think? Are you excited to see the Rebirth team-up of these two DC titans? Discuss and comment below.
