Swamp Thing Builds Himself Out of Cannabis in The Witching Hour

To be fair, this isn’t totally the first time it has happened. Garth Ennis and the late Steve Dillon gave us this scene for Hellblazer for John Constantine’s 40th birthday a couple of decades ago.

But that was a mature readers comic book and apparently Swamp Thing being a grow-your-own type of fellow was fine. But now, in a world where cannabis use is becoming increasingly more legal and available, it seems that in today’s Wonder Woman/Justice League Dark: The Witching Hour. A beautiful looking book – but less white lettering on mid-grey backgrounds please? Thank you,

Anyway, Swamp Thing grows himself a few bodies… including this one.

That looks pretty familiar, To, um some people obviously. So, while Swamp Thing is now looking more and more like Alan Moore…

…at least he’s now made out of one of Alan’s more favoured herbs. So what do the rest of the Justice League Dark think about this development?

Yeah, yeah, I bet you do Karl. Scientific research, I bet. Also, beautiful work from Jesus Merino here…
