swamp thing reading order banner

One of the DC Universe’s darkest characters, he quickly became one of its most interesting. He is the protector of the Green.

What’s on this Swamp Thing Reading Order?

Swamp Thing originated in the early years of DC Comics, and eventually became part of DC’s imprint, Vertigo. But his story has intersected with the larger DC Universe many times.

This timeline attempts to list all of the major stories involving Swamp Thing, both from the DC Universe and outside it. While it might not contain every single story with the character, it does look at the primary comics.

Where to Start?

You can start anywhere you like on this timeline. You can start with the classic stuff, or move on to the more recent comics. When you see the Volumes begin to start over with number 1, that’s often a good place to start.

As always, if you like this timeline, you might enjoy some of our others, including our massive collection of DC timelines in our DC Comics Hub. And if you see something that needs to be added or changed, be sure to let us know over on our contact page. We love to hear all your feedback! In the meantime, we hope you enjoy this Swamp Thing Reading Order.
