On Friday, August 19th, Mondo will be releasing a new poster design for Swamp Thing as part of their Wes Craven Director Series.

"We are continuing our Wes Craven Director Series with Swamp Thing! Florian Bertmer turned in one of his best posters ever and D&L Screen Printing went ALL OUT with this one. I will have some detail pictures up on the blog later today to show how intricate and beautiful this thing is in person."

For fans of Swamp Thing, don't miss his return to DC Comics as part of their "The New 52" re-launch. The new ongoing series is written by Scott Snyder (American Vampire), with the first issue available this month. We've included the original and variant poster art below. To purchase these posters, keep an eye on the official Mondo Twitter page.

"Deep in Florida's darkest everglades, a brilliant scientist, Dr. Alec Holland (Ray Wise), and a sexy government agent, Alice Cable (Adrienne Barneau), have developed a secret formula that could end world hunger and change civilisation forever. Little do they know, however, that their arch nemesis, Arcane (Louis Jourdan), is plotting to steal the serum for his own selfish schemes. Looting the lab and kidnaping Cable, Arcane douses Holland with the chemicals and leaves him for dead in the swamp. Mutated by his own formula, Holland becomes "Swamp Thing"-a half plant superhero who will stop at nothing to rescue the beautiful Cable and defeat the evil Arcane...even if it costs him his life!"
