Swamp Thing: Twin Branches Blog Tour

From #1-New York Times-bestselling author Maggie Stiefvater (the Raven Cycle series) and artist Morgan Beem comes DC’s newest young adult original graphic novel, the spine-tingling saga Swamp Thing: Twin Branches. In the pages of this haunting retelling of the Swamp Thing origin story, teenage twin brothers Alec and Walker Holland arrive in Virginia for their last summer before college, but while Walker thrives in the light of parties and social life, Alec recedes into the cool darkness of the lab, driven to finding answers in his plant experiment on consciousness and memory. But what Alec comes to realize is that the experiment isn’t about solving nature’s riddles, but about finding out who he really is. And though these twin brothers have grown apart, they share the same roots – and will unite once more before splintering apart forever.

Swamp Thing: Twins Branches is a haunting coming-of-age story about growing into who you’re meant to be, and the sacrifices you make to protect the people you love. This original young adult graphic novel is aimed at readers ages 13+ and deftly interweaves in social issues like bullying, peer pressure and living with a medical condition, while examining themes like growing up, the importance of communication, sharing memories and experiences, and overcoming trauma. Swamp Thing: Twin Branches hits stores everywhere books are sold on 10/13/2020.

Twins Alec and Walker Holland have a reputation around town. One is quiet and the other is the life of any party, but they are inseparable. Spending their last summer before college together, the two leave the city to live with their rural cousins, where they find that the swamp holds far darker depths than they could have imagined. This season, both brothers must confront truths, ancient and familial, and as their lives diverge, tensions increase and dormant memories claw to the surface.

“HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Fans have flocked to Stiefvater’s high-concept YA series (The Wolves of Mercy Falls, The Raven Cycle). Her first graphic novel serves up everything they love.”

Booklist

“An appealing coming-of-age story infused with horror-movie sensibilities, Swamp Thing: Twin Branches makes for, as the Swamp Thing’s tagline once read, “sophisticated suspense.”
