"Dr. Alec Holland used to be dead. A lab accident killed this brilliant botanist and biochemist, but he was resurrected as the shambling supernatural creature called Swamp Thing. Or so everyone thought. The immortal spirits who guide the Green - the vibrant force uniting all plant life - used Holland's humanity as the seed for Swamp Thing, their greatest protector, but the real man himself remained dead in the ground - until six weeks ago, when Holland awoke, alive, but cursed with the memories of the monster made in his image."--P.  of cover.
