Today, I get to share my first sneak peak with you of the upcoming graphic novel: Swamp Thing: Twin Branches written by Maggie Stiefvater (one of my FAVORITE authors) & illustrated by Morgan Beem! I’m so excited for this one, friends! I’ve been on a huge graphic novel kick and this one is PERFECT for Fall and of course on this first day of Fall, I find it so fitting to share this first sneak peak!
Thank you to DC Entertainment and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advanced copy of this graphic novel in exchange for a review and to DC Entertainment for allowing me to share some sneak peaks over the next couple of weeks before the release of Swamp Thing on October 13!
So what’s Swamp Thing: Twin Branches all about? Read below for the summary:
From #1New York Times bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater (the
Raven Cycle series) and artist Morgan Beem comes DC’s newest
young adult original graphic novel, the spine-tingling saga Swamp
Thing: Twin Branches. In the pages of this haunting retelling of the Swamp Thing origin story, teenage twin brothers Alec and Walker Holland arrive in Virginia for their last summer before college, but while Walker thrives in the light of parties and social life, Alec recedes into the cool darkness of the lab, driven to finding answers in his plant experiment on consciousness and memory. But what Alec comes to realize is that the experiment isn’t about solving nature’s riddles, but about finding out who he really is. And though these twin brothers have grown apart, they share the same roots – and will unite once more before splintering apart forever.
Swamp Thing: Twins Branches is a haunting coming-of-age story about growing into who you’re meant to be, and the sacrifices you make to protect the people you love. This original young adult graphic novel is aimed at readers ages 13+ and deftly interweaves in social issues like bullying, peer pressure and living with a medical condition, while examining themes like
growing up, the importance of communication, sharing memories and experiences, and overcoming trauma. Swamp Thing: Twin Branches hits stores everywhere books are sold on 10/13/2020.
