Swamp Thing: Complete First Season is being released to DVD on January 22, 2008. Shout! Factory will release all 22 episodes from the first two seasons of the show created for USA Network, and a trailer for the DVD has been released at LiveVideo.com.
Special features on the DVD set include interviews with the co-creator of the comic-book Swamp Thing, Len Wein and Dick Durock, the actor who played the Swamp Thing on the series and in the movies Swamp Thing and The Return of Swamp Thing.
The Swamp Thing was created by Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson, and was originally Alec Holland, a scientist working on a secret bio-restorative formula in the swamps of Louisiana. Holland is killed by agents of Anton Arcane, who wants the formula for his own purposes. Splashed with burning chemicals in the massive fire, Holland runs from the lab and falls into the muck-filled swamp, after which a creature resembling a humanoid plant appears some time later.
