Writer Mark Russell and artist Marco Santucci are creating the lead story in February 26's Swamp Thing Giant #3. The issue is part of DC's 100-Page Giants line of anthologies.

"Word has gotten out about the existence of Swamp Thing - and now tourists are swamping the swamp looking for a glimpse of the bigfoot of the bayou," reads DC's description of their story. "The sudden popularity only accelerates Sunderland Corporation's plans to destroy him, but Swamp Thing finds help from an unexpected quarter...whether he wants it or not."

A second new story, "The Courser," comes from writer Phil Hester and artist Tom Mandrake.

"As a hurricane threatens the Louisiana coast, Swamp Thing is led to an archaeological dig where a young professor studies the wreck of a sunken slave ship," reads the story description. "But her mysterious benefactor has his own reasons for funding the endeavor, and they may be far more dangerous than the oncoming storm."

The 100-page anthology will also include reprints of : "Fateful Reunion" from Swamp Thing #3 (2016); "The Poison Truth Part 3" from John Constantine: The Hellblazer #3 (2016); and "Night on Devil Mountain" from Zatanna #3 (2010).
