DC Comics has informed comic book stores that the current Swamp Thing series by Ram V and Mike Perkins, originally solicited as a ten-issue mini-series, will not be stopping there. DC Comics states that "The Swamp Thing has extended its roots to Season Two! Due to popular demand, December's issue #10 is not the end for writer Ram V and artist Mike Perkins' critically acclaimed series. Originally planned as a 10-part series, The Swamp Thing has been extended to 16 installments, with The Swamp Thing #10 followed by a short hiatus before returning in March with issue #11."
That might help retailers make a decision over Swamp Thing #10, up for FOC this weekend, as Swamp Thing #9 went on sale yesterday in comic book stores.
