When mudballs collide


Pages from Giant-Size Man-Thing #1, written by Steve Gerber and drawn by Mike Ploog. Man-Thing is one of my favorite series (hell, favorite in general) and this was near the peak from one of the amazing creative teams ever. Man-Thing was done decently by others later, but it was no comparison to the quirky observation of Gerber and the cute-but-creepy art of Mike Ploog, let alone both of them in a great package. The entire issue can be read in Essential Man-Thing.

And yes, I have to finally write my review of that damn book. I'm feeling more confident and perspective of it,(particularly with Gerber's death) so hopefully soon.

Fabulous artwork. I would like to see your review of the Essential Man-Thing. I think I might do the same thing with The Essential Howard the Duck. How did you prepare for the review.
