Okay, if you’re still there, here’s what we can share. On September 25th, DC’s newest middle grade graphic novel, THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID, will be available in comic shops. Today, DC is giving fans a sneak peek into Swamp Kid’s journal with a brand-new trailer! Featuring middle schooler Russell Weinwright, an excessive doodler, and his best friends Charlotte and Preston, this swampy journal follows Russell’s hilarious journey as Swamp Kid.
For a special glimpse into the world of Swamp Kid, check out the trailer below!
In THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID, Russell details, in both humorous text and green-tinted illustrations (complete with ketchup stains!), what it’s like to be different, to be comfortable in his own skin (no matter how slimy), to discover his true talents, to avoid the intense stare of his suspicious science teacher, and to find humor in the everyday weird.
THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID (MAY190359) is available to pre-order now and will hit comic shops on September 25th!
Seriously, we mean it.
Okay, if you are still with us, here is what we can share: Russell is a middle schooler; he excessively doodles; he has two best friends, Charlotte and Preston; he is not so great at sports; and he is pond scum. Nicknamed "Swamp Kid" by his classmates, Russell has algae for hair, a tree trunk for a right arm, and a carrot for a finger. Also, Russell's favorite meal is sunlight. Also, a frog lives in his arm. In this notebook, Russell details in both hilarious text and color illustrations (complete with ketchup stains!) what it's like to be different, to discover his true talents, to avoid the intense stare of Mr. Finneca (his suspicious science teacher who may also be a mad scientist), and to find humor in the everyday weird.
This is THE SECRET SPIRAL OF SWAMP KID by writer and illustrator Kirk Scroggs, and you'll never look at middle school the same way again.
