Synopsis for "Fish Story"
After the boys Nicky and Howard don't come home overnight, their parents interrogate their friend Bill for information. Eventually, all of the parents decide to go out to Rosewood and find them.
Swamp Thing, encounters the Vampires in the sunken town of Rosewood, and when they discover that he has no blood, they begin to herd him toward the site of the “nativity,” the old stadium, which is full of eggs. Swamp Thing watches in horror as the eggs hatch, and the newborn creatures devour eachother until only one remains - a giant fish-like vampire which attacks and destroys his body.
Meanwhile, the parents discover Nicky and Howard at the water's edge. Nicky, now a vampire, lures his own mother to them, and then drains her of her blood. Soon after, his father is devoured by the fish-creature, along with Bill's father. The remaining parents grab Howard and drive away in horror.
Swamp thing allows his body to die, and then stretches his consciousness out across The Green. He gathers his energies and becomes one with the land, adjusting the terrain so that the water within the lake begins flowing again. The vampires residing in the lake cannot survive running water, and they are all destroyed.
Later, Swamp Thing encounters John Constantine in the ruins of the now drained town of Rosewood. He offers a cryptic warning before they part ways.
