“Swamp Thing” No. 28 hits shelves Wednesday, and Hero Complex readers get an exclusive preview of the issue, written by Charles Soule and illustrated by Javier Pina.

The issue sees Swamp Thing (a.k.a. Alec Holland) returning to the Bayou after his face-off against the villainous Seeder in issue No. 27.

In the issue No. 28 preview pages (read them in the gallery above or by clicking the links below), the newly restored Avatar of the Green goes off in search of Capucine, but not before showing some guests from the Green a good time in New Orleans’ French Quarter. (Hint: comical costumes and heavy drinking are involved.)

The issue also deals with the ramifications of Swamp Thing’s efforts to become the sole avatar, including what happened to the former avatars who helped him throughout his time in the paradise of the Green.

No. 27 and No. 28 mark a new jumping-on point for readers of the acclaimed series, which has enjoyed critical praise during Soule’s tenure. Soule (“Superman / Wonder Woman,” “Strongman”) took over the title a year ago from DC heavyweight Scott Snyder.
