Secrets of the Swamp is the fourth arc of the horror anthology comic series Goosebumps. It began publication in September of 2020.
When twelve-year-old Blake is shipped away to stay with her weird aunt in Fever Swamp for the summer, she expects her weeks to be filled with video games, mosquito bites, and a whole lot of nothing. Instead, she finds herself in a spooky turf war between wolf-hunters and werewolves. With monsters on both sides, it's up to Blake to use all of her gaming skills to escape alive.
Blake was worried that summer break with her weird aunt in Fever Swamp would be b-o-r-i-n-g, but it's quickly become more intense than she ever could have imagined. Lost in the swamp with her gaming rival Lily and surrounded by werewolves, Blake could use a lot less danger and a little more boring right about now!
After a close encounter with some werewolves in the swamp, Blake is separated from her new friend Lily and all alone. But a stunning discovery will make her wonder just who Lily really is... and who the real monsters are!
Blake thought things were bad enough when she found herself lost in a werewolf-infested swamp, but when the hunters become the hunted, she'll have to figure out just whose side she's on. This is NOT how she expected her summer to go! The wild werewolf nightmare continues.
