What comics has he appeared in?

For a couple of years Todd Dominik maintained an excellent bibliography of the appearances that Man-Thing has made in comics with dates and information on the storylines. Then Todd let me know that he had lost interest in comic books, and so didn't feel it was fair to keep the page on his site when it hadn't seen any updates in almost a year. He therefore removed the list from his site but graciously passed on the bibliography to me. I have added links to extra information based on my own incomplete collection of Man-Thing comics and other information I've found. I endeavour to keep up Todd's good work in recording the appearances of our favourite Muck Monster.

Items are sorted in the same order as the Overstreet Price Guide. Entries with a question mark (?) are rumoured appearances that have not been verified by either Todd or myself.

Primary Appearances

This list features the Man-Thing as the center of the storyline, or as a supporting character. In these stories, Manny interacts with the Marvel Universe in "real-time" and makes a contribution to others or the reader discovers a new character trait.

Savage Tales #1 ()
savage_tales_01.jpg - 18.5 KBWriter: Thomas, Roy & Conway, Gerry, (a) Morrow, Gray
To keep AIM from getting its hands on the serum he devised to allow people to survive in polluted environments, chemist Ted Sallis injects himself with it, and its properties combine with the mystic powers of the swamp to turn him into a near-mindless Man-Thing.
He is born not in a fetid. festering swamp, but in an air-conditoned office-though the air-coriddionino doesn't always work.
Editor Stan Lee has a title: The Men-Tning. And a concept: A man who becomes a powerful, misshapen monster-at the price of his very soul. Stan and side-kick Roy Thomas discuss maybe five different origins (we'll let you guess try guessing the other four). Then they get to discussing artisits-and the name Gray Morrow comes up. Known throughout the comics industry as one as the best draftsmen in the business, Gray is a natural-and so, with a story-synopsis done by Roy, the Multi-talented Mr Morrow sets to work with indiscribabie gusto. A new element enters the pictire: Gerard Coneay. Call him a beginner. Author of only a couple of science-fiction hooks and not more than a handful of published s-f stories. Gerry, too. gets truly turned on-and the rest, as everybody says. is history.
Jone warning. in case you're scanningg this before you plunge into the actual story: Don't read it in bed-unless nightmares turn you on.

Shame Manny leaves the swamp behind and embarks on a quest to save all realities and attempts to rediscover his own buried humanity! Series details...

THE HOOK: It's a fear-fraught (and non-code approved) journey into the dark corners of the Marvel Universe as the macabre muck-monster leaves the swamp behind and embarks on a quest to save all realities and attempts to rediscover his own buried humanity!
THE STORY: It all begins with a dream. A dream of myriad realities intersecting and being destroyed, worlds upon worlds fading from existence as the Nexus of All Realities-fractured by Onslaught and the cosmic storm of HEROES RETURN-is torn asunder. Only the Man-Thing, the shambling, mindless guardian of the Nexus possess the power to prevent multiversal disaster. But a human guide is required for the creature to be successful in reintegrating the Nexus. Enter Ellen Brandt, wife of Ted Sallis, the woman whose betrayal created the Man-Thing. The woman whose beautiful face was forever scarred by the monster in the first ever Man-Thing story. She's never been face-to-face with the creature who once was her husband-until now. Now unseen cosmic forces-along with sorcerer Doctor Strange-have brought these two together. Will the Man-Thing reduce Ellen to a pile of ashes, or will they both attempt to save the multiverse? Will the sins of the past bring about revenge-or redemption?
THE CHARACTERS: Government chemist Ted Sallis was working on recreating the Super Soldier Serum that created Captain America when his wife betrayed him to the subversive organisation known as A.I.M. To protect the formula from A.I.M.'s clutches, Sallis injected himself with the untested serum and crashed his car into the swamp. There, the chemicals mingled with the mystical forces of the Nexus and transformed him into the mud-encrusted Man-Thing! As an empath, the monster responds in a severe way to emotions. Negative emotions-such as fear, hate, anger or envy-cause him excruciating pain. Gifted with the ability to destroy the source of this pain, all of comicdom learned that whoever knows fear burns at the Man-Thing's touch! Additionally, the mystical forces which transformed Sallis have also appointed him the Guardian of the Nexus of All Realities, the dimensional crossroads which-until very recently-was centred in the Florida Everglades.
THE CREATORS: Currently writing SILVER SURFER and SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN, J.M. DeMatteis is known for his penetrating, emotional stories, and has helped pioneer the "mature" style of comics with such works as MOONSHADOW, Seekers Into The Mystery, Brooklyn Dreams and BLOOD: A TALE. Liam Sharp developed his distinct look on titles such as DEATH'S HEAD, VENOM and THE INCREDIBLE HULK. Together, DeMatteis and Sharp will be spinning a sophisticated saga of psychological horror fully planted within the Marvel Universe.
THE FORMAT: This monthly, 32-page, direct only, non-code approved book is suggested for mature readers, kiddies!
THE LEAD-IN: The events of GENERATION X #25, the four-part DAYDREAMERS limited series and MARVEL TEAM-UP #4 plunge straight into MAN-THING.
THE SUPPORT: Coverage in Marvel's 40-page titles, House and Industry ads and a promotional poster.

This was a very interesting comic but Man-Thing dissappeared in the convoluted plot concerning the supporting characters. When it was combined with Werewolf in Strange Tales it still wasn't lighting my fire, then after a few issues it got canned. J.M.DeMatheis spoke to CBR.com about the behind the scenes details that impacted on the storytelling:

In order to understand how screwed up the end of the series was, you have to realize that we weren't cancelled just once, we were canceled several times! First we were told that the Strange Tales line was pretty much over and that our monthly book was being killed (this was after only four or five issues had been out, so you can see how much faith they had in us! Marvel was really in turmoil in those days and people were hitting the panic button very quickly). But, at the same time, we were also told that Man-Thing were being folded, along with Werewolf By Night , into a new oversized split-book called... Strange Tales . So we were canceled and uncanceled at the same time.
Liam and I kept working, but we got word early on-I think before the first issue had even come out-that Strange Tales was being canceled after, I think, the fourth issue, so could we please wrap up our story? We sighed, banged our heads against the wall and set to work wrapping up. Only then we were told that the book was being canceled after the second issue. Well, we'd pretty much finished the third issue...I'd plotted, the fourth... but the series was left hanging. Bob Harras had Liam finish up the art on the third story... thinking that we could bring it out in some form down the line. I don't think he ever drew the fourth... but I've got the plot in my files, so I know I wrote it!
As for what we did, and were going to do, in the following issues: We had many wonderful ideas, many wonderful ways to use the characters and create new incarnations for the Man-Thing himself. We intended to take our time, but we squeezed some of those ideas into our final, never-seen issues. Ted (free of the Man-Thing forever) and Ellen were sent off into the Nexus itself to be its guardians. And we had plans for the albino Man-Thing that began to evolve in our final issues, which would have ended with a brand-new Man-Thing, nothing like the old one, in the swamp. And then there was a whole universe of new characters-Termineus, Sorrow, The Fallen Stars-that we wanted to develop.
There's a fairly pathetic endnote to this story. Ralph Macchio, a wonderful editor, called me up one day, not long after our cancellation, and asked if I'd like to bring the Ted Sallis Man-Thing back in a Spider-Man annual . Ralph's thinking was, Someone's gonna do it... and probably soon... so it might as well be you. Ralph's heart was in the right place... but I really should have said no. At the time I still believed our last stories would come out-and, I hoped, relatively soon-so I thought, okay, let's give it a try.
I ended up writing a story that picked up where our last, unprinted issues left off: first big mistake, right? I mean, we're footnoting stories that no one has ever read! And then, of course, by bringing back the Sallis Man-Thing, I undid the whole point of our final stories. Dumb, dumb, dumb. But, as Ralph noted, it was going to happen anyway, so I might as well be the guy who did it. Very Big Mistake. On top of that, Liam was only available to draw half the story and the other artist's style, although quite strong in its own right, was diametrically opposed to Liam's, so the art was incredibly inconsistent, to say the least.
The whole thing was a disaster. An incoherent mishmosh...and I have no one to blame but myself. Let's all just pretend it never happened, okay?

I was gravely disappointed with this comic, it looked like it mixed some leftover artwork from the Strange Tales series with some quite drab Spiderman filler. The new Man-Thing is a complete change of direction: he is now the soul of the first sentient being that arrived on earth that has joined with the souls' of Ted and Ellen Sallis. This Man-Thing is a silvery-white colour and talks while wandering around looking wise and mystical. It's a mess.

An insurance investigator comes to look into some damage to a swamp construction site. Said damage looks like the swamp has attacked the site, more in keeping with the powers of DC's Swamp-Thing than anything Man-Thing has ever exhibited. Great spooky artwork and fans of the X-Files should enjoy the plot so far, but fans of the Man-Thing of old (I know there are a couple of us) might be left unsatisfied.

Rodionoff talked to Fangoria and Comicbookresources about his work on the film and related comic.

'The Man-Thing' limited series is meant to co-exist with the Ultimate universe, but also seeks to build a new universe with Man-Thing as the nucleus. What I'd love to see happen is the creation of a horror universe that is barren of costumed heroes. In other words, Captain America wouldn't ever make a guest appearance in 'Man-Thing.' The Man-Thing series is not really an origin story, but it's as close to an origin as the mythology will allow. I hate to be so guarded about it, but again, I don't want to ruin it for anyone by giving away too much. There are moments in the prequel series that I wanted to have in the film, but they were impossible from a budgetary standpoint. If the series does well, I think it's possible that there will be further journeys into the swamp and hopefully beyond.

Fear Itself - Fearsome Four coverWritten by Brandon Montclare
Artwork by Michael Kaluta, Ryan Bodenheim, Simon Bisley, and Henry Flint
Cover by Michael Kaluta
Series details...

Fear Itself was the company-wide crossover event coming to Marvel in 2011, and it was only fit and proper Man-Thing got a starring role in this related miniseries.

The world is a scary place, especially in the Marvel Universe and mostespecially during Fear Itself, Fearsome Four writer Brandon Montclare tells Marvel.com. And Man-Thing, he's drawn to fear like a moth to a flame. So with all the terror out there, Man-Thing is overloaded. He's about to go supernova.

The Fearsome Four have come together to stop Man-Thing, or die trying. And while doing so they each have to face their own very personal and very unique fears. Howard the Duck, She-Hulk, Nighthawk, and Frankenstein are pretty different; but each in his or her own way is a monster, a freak, a person with a dark side. They're all outsiders, so while some have done the team thing before, there's going to be tension. This story can only happen with thesefour characters. The Fantastic Four were the world's greatest heroes. The Fearsome Four have an explosive situation to deal with, and whether they'll defuse it or set if off is a big part of the story.

Man-Thing has recently been much more active with the Marvel heroes, confirms Montclare. Fearsome Four is an extension of that: the potential consequences of having such a powerful, primal force introduced to the super powered world.

Cover artist and living legend Michael Wm Kaluta will also be doing the special segment in issue #1. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. Just below the icy waterline the one-and-only Simon Bisley is lurking. Down in the depths below also lurks artist Henry Flint of Judge Dredd and Haunted Tank fame. It's a monstrously amazing group of guys that people will never forget.

Newsarama has chatted with Montclare about the series:

Man-Thing looks to be at the center of things here, a character most folks thought was a natural fit for Fear Itself given all that "whoever burns at the touch" jazz. How would you characterize his role in the context of the larger Fear Itself conflict?

Montclare: The Fearsome Four have come together to stop Man-Thing. With the events of Fear Itself , Man-Thing is about to explode-literally. Man-Thing isn't evil - in fact he's more mindless than anything else. But in a world completely scared stiff, he's a ticking time bomb. Also coming into play is the less predictable Nexus of All Realities. This is a part of the Man-Thing mythos that started deep in his mossy roots. He's been recently using the NoAR to transport the Thunderbolts to and fro in that book; and in Fearsome Four he'll unfortunately be bringing some alternate reality nightmares into this world.

Nrama: I think it's fair to say that Howard the Duck will be one of the main attractions of Fearsome Four. He has a long history with Man-Thing - is that touched upon in the course of the series?

Montclare: The important heroes have their eyes on the main onslaught in Fear Itself. So the Man-Thing threat might fly under the radar if not for Howard the Duck. Their history is essential to the story. And it's more than just a NYC neighborhood Howard wants to save from inferno. Man-Thing is his friend, and Howard wants to bring him in safe. And if this is the time that Marvel's avatar of fear has to be taken down, Howard wants to be the one to do it.

Barbiere & Schoonover discuss the series with Comic Book Resources: A lot of readers have asked me about Man-Thing, and this is the version of the character where he doesn't speak, because I guess when he appeared in "Thunderbolts" Man-Thing talked a lot. My take is very much the more traditional, silent and mysterious Man-Thing... I've been reading a lot of older Man-Thing stories to get some more background on the character. I think he's such a fun, interesting, visually cool and dynamic character. We have a really cool scene with Man-Thing right in the first issue, so I'm excited for people to check it out.

Man-Thing talked himself into a job in Hollywood. Series details...

Age Rating: 12+ Only
Beloved writer R.L. Stine (Goosebumps, Fear Street) brings his special brand of horror to Man-Thing! After working for years, Man-Thing has regained his ability to speak and has taken Hollywood by storm... But when an ancient and mysterious danger threatens the swamp, Man-Thing is going to have to choose between his new life and celebrity, and the world he used to call home... PLUS! A bone-chilling new horror story, written by the master himself, R.L. STINE, and illustrated by the incomparable Daniel Warren Johnson!
Lots of variant covers for #1:
volume5_001_variants.jpg - 89.2 KBThe New York Times broke the news that Manny will return in a series beginning in March 2017, written by R. L. Stine, the author of the "Goosebumps" novellas for children. For Mr. Stine, 73, writing the five-issue series is something of a lifelong dream. 'My first ambition was to be a comic book artist,# he said. 'I started doing these little comic books in the fourth grade: 'Super Stooge,' the dumbest hero on earth.' Though he shared the stories with his classmates, he quickly realized he had no talent for illustration. 'I was terrible,' he said. 'I had no choice but to be a writer.'
The new Man-Thing series, with covers by Tyler Crook and interior artwork by German Peralta and Daniel Johnson, is inspired by the iconic horror comics of the 1950s like Tales From the Crypt, of which Mr. Stine was a big fan.
Marvel offered Mr. Stine several characters, but he quickly settled on Man-Thing because of his fondness for swamp monsters, which have been frequent characters in "Goosebumps" stories. Despite being a horror series - aimed at teenagers and older - Mr. Stine hopes to bring some comedy.
"I'm going to do a lot of action and a lot of great violence and make it creepy, but I'm going to make it funny at the same time," he said. "It's what I try to do in my books." In the first story, Man-Thing heads to Burbank, Calif., wondering why he is not starring in a major motion picture. In the new series Man-Thing will no longer be mute. "He can talk and he's very sarcastic," Mr. Stine noted.)

R.L. Stine: [Laughs] Well, you know, I tried to make the whole series funnier because he's such a hideous character. He has to be maybe the ugliest character Marvel has, which is one of the main reasons I picked him when they give me a [list] of characters that they weren't using and said, "Which one would you like to do?" and I happen to love swamp monsters and he was just so ugly I had to pick him. But yes, there is a major twist at the end. You know, like all Goosebumps books there's a happy ending, they all have happy endings, but then after the happy ending, there's something pretty terrible [Laughs].

Best taken as a What If tale of a Manny unlike any we've met before. It's funny, but not five issues funny, and the twist in the tale in the final issue is so similar to one in a well known book and movie adaption that I'm surprised Marvel's editors let Stine get away with it.

Now this could have some serious story telling implications down the line. Growing plants from cuttings is cloning, so the marvel universe now has two Man-Things with the same powers and abilities. Whether they have the same personalities is a moot point; Ted Sallis' conciousness could be in both but Manny isn't usually much of a thinker so how would one know.

Burn At The Touch Of The Harrower! For decades, the Man-Thing has haunted the Florida Everglades. Now a new enemy has hijacked his body on a quest to take his incendiary abilities global.
The Marvel Universe wakes to fear as gargantuan monoliths menace cities worldwide, with only the Avengers standing between the population of Earth and a planetwide inferno, Can they save Man-Thing in time to douse the fires? And does the man inside the thing, Ted Sallis, even want to be saved? All this plus a sensational new villain designed by Marvel's Stormbreaker Carmen Carnero await readers in the exciting opening tale that will kick off an unforgettable journey for Man-Thing and your favorite Marvel heroes including the X-Men, Spider-Man and more! Avengers: Curse of the Man Thing marks Orlando's first Marvel project, with the bulk of the writer's previous work being for DC Comics. It's a huge honor to be asked to make my debut as part of a character's anniversary, Orlando told Bloody Disgusting. There's an incredible amount of faith and opportunity there, and it's something I never take lightly! It is honestly amazing to be welcomed to Marvel and tell this nailbiter of a story that's going to remind people just how unique Man-Thing is. He'll be better positioned than ever to shock and scare readers and villains alike, but first he'll have to survive an attack that cuts him to his core and sets the Marvel Universe ablaze.
If you like super heroes and the supernatural, you'll love this high octane celebration of one of Marvel's strangest characters, added editor Mark Paniccia. It feels like its own big event. And Steve's epic story will reveal, amongst other things, an unexpected new dimension of the Marvel Universe.

Meanwhile, Peter Parker AKA Spider-Man races across New York desperate to avert disaster and find the one man that just might be able to get through to Man-Thing - his former colleague Curt Connors AKA the Lizard!

Man-Thing's tragic curse has finally been revealed... but it's under new management! Years ago, Doctor Ted Sallis was ready to give up anything to crack the SO-2 serum and deliver success to his growing family. Unbeknownst to the rest of the world...he did. Today, as cities spanning from the U.S. to Krakoa are besieged by fear-driven blazes, the Man-Thing must reckon with his past deeds if he hopes to emerge renewed and rescue a world on fire.
But fighting from his lowest means that Man-Thing can rise to his highest, especially with the unexpected help of the X-Men's resident sorceress Magik and her debuting team of monstrous mutants known as The Dark Riders! Magik will lead one of the most eclectic group of mutants ever assembled, a fearsome mix of fan-favorites and obscure delights: Marrow, Forearm, Shark-Girl, Wolf Cub, and Mammomax!

Wha..Huh!? ()
Wha...Huh?! detail(C) Jim Mahfood (we think)
Man-Thing pushed his way into the cover shot This parody title was to have appeared in December '04, but was been delayed until September '05 for reasons unspoken. I had a quick look through and there doesn't appear to be any appearance apart from on the cover.
The hype: Written by Brian Michael Bendis, Stan Lee, Mark Millar, J. Michael Straczynski, Garth Ennis, Brian K. Vaughan, Peter David and everyone else we could get our hands on!
Because clearly Bendis doesn't have enough books to write this month, the big baby bullied Marvel's upper management into green-lighting this ridiculous pile of silly nonsense! In the great tradition of NOT BRAND ECHH and the old humor issues of WHAT IF?, WHA...HUH? asks the questions that no one really cares about...
What if the Identity Crisis happened in the Marvel Universe?
What if Modok has an itch?
What if Kevin Smith finished his books?
Bendis reteams with hilarious Clerks artist Jim Mahfood and all the best Marvel scribes-Mark Millar, JMS, Garth Ennis and a ton of others-to make the dumbest comic published this year. No one is safe!

Spidey meets the muck monster called Man-Thing! Despondent that the funding for his cherished limb regeneration research is to be -- pardon the pun -- cut off, biologist Curt Conners turns himself into a guinea pig -- and finds himself transformed into the lethal Lizard! The rapacious reptile seeks refuge in the dank recesses of the New York City sewer system -- pursued by our fledgling web-spinner! But unknown to them both, something far more mysterious lurks in the subterranean shadows -- something known as the macabre Man-Thing!
This is an interesting but predictable addition to the ranks of muck monster stories. Man-Thing plays only a very small role in events.

Marvel Tarot ()

Man-Thing as the "World" card. Theories on the Marvels of Myth and Magic from the Files of Ian McNee! Sorcerer and outsider Ian McNee has been plagued by disturbing dreams and unsettling omens. Something is not right with the world and he needs to know what it is. To gain insights into his growing unease he turns to his most prized mystical possession, The First Tarot! Created in the distant past, The First Tarot is mystically attuned to reflect and track the archetypes of the Marvel Universe. Can this "Tarot of Marvels" show Ian what is wrong? Or is something wrong with it as well?
Peek inside the fascinating and disorganized files of a Magician on a Mission as he examines the current concepts behind Marvel's Myth and Magic and adds a few of his own. How do the Elder Gods connect to the Four Elements? Who are The Get of Set? And a Who's Who of Marvel characters presented in the context of the Tarot's Major Arcana. Is Dr. Doom THE EMPEROR? Is Daimon Hellstorm THE DEVIL? All will be revealed ...in the cards!

It's an election year, and what better way to celebrate than to cast your vote for the one candidate who'll really tell it like it is. Born on a planet populated by talking waterfowl, Howard the Duck found himself trapped in a world he never made: ours! Howard was the archetypal outsider, able to see through the absurdities of human society in the 1970s with uncanny accuracy and an acerbic wit. His adventures presented writer Steve Gerber with a platform from which to engage in an ongoing critique of contemporary fools and pretenders, from power-mad capitalist wizard Pro-Rata to cult leader Reverend Joon Moon Yuc to the dreaded Doctor Bong! Experience for yourself the complete comic adventures of Howard in this Omnibus collection, reprinting his first appearances and the entire run of his first series.

Neither wholly plant nor animal, neither entirely self-aware nor totally non-sentient, the creature called the Man-Thing is unique, unchanging and alone - but none who encounter him can ever be the same again. Empathic by nature and drawn to fight evil, his shambling visage inspires fear - and whatever knows fear burns at the Man-Thing's touch. Whether danger rises from the swamp or the city, the past or the future, outer space or the human soul, the Man-Thing awaits! July 2012 PREVIEWS solicits

Man-Thing: Whatever Knows Fear Trade Paper Back ()
Man-Thing V4 trade paperbackCollects Man Thing Vol. 3, #1-3 plus Savage tales #1, the creature's first appearance, and Adventure into Fear #16, the story that inspired the movie! From the screenwriter of the MAN-THING movie comes this prequel exploring the disappearance of the local sheriff in a backwater bayou town plagued by mysterious and horrific events. Featuring some of the cast from the film, as well as a new character-an unflappable insurance-claims adjuster named Nathan Mehr-this story further explores the mythology and backstory introduced in the movie, ending where the big-screen adventure begins.
Issue one broke into the top 100 sales for the month, so Marvel perhaps saw some big interest in the character coming out of the movie, but with the change in plans for the film's release, the collection took a while to hit the shelves. It was nice to see the first appearance and Steve Gerber's Cry of the Native! story on the shelves for new readers.

Reprints Infernal Man-Thing #1-3.

This story was originally listed in one of the give-away comic shop gossip sheets back in the late 1980s along with a sample of some very nice painted artwork, but then nothing....

On his yahoo mailing list in early 2003, Kevin Nowlancommented when asked Man-thing should be published later this year. It's not all finished, but we're trying to figure out a way to get the remaining pages completed...It had numerous problems from the very beginning and I'll be very happy when it's finished once and for all. Later () Nowlan posted some scans of artwork from the graphic novel, adding: Before anyone asks, I don't know what the status of the of the book is at the moment. I'm waiting to hear back from a Marvel editor so we can reconnoiter.

Man-Thing Graphic Novel Cover

Several pages of painted artwork for the graphic novel were included in Modern Masters Volume Four: Kevin Nowlan by Tomorrows Publishing

I asked Steve Gerber in the early 2000s if he knew anything about it and he replied As for the graphic novel, well -- Kevin Nowlan has never finished it, and I have no idea whether or not it will ever be published.

mtgraphicnovelpanel.jpgLetterer Todd Klein was the best source for project updates such as Not sure what the final title of this will be, it's a script from the 1990s, I believe, by Steve Gerber, with terrific art by Kevin Nowlan, who started it a long time ago, and is now finally wrapping it up. Wild stuff, wonderful art! ....After some signs of life this past summer, when I finished the lettering and did corrections, the project seems to have gone dormant again. Don't know when it might come out.

Then in late 2011 folk at Marvel were dropping hints that the book was on its way:

Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso: All I can say is we do have a Man-Thing project coming out soon that is older than some of Marvel's assistant editors and well worth the wait.

In response to that article a visitor added a comment stating Kevin had finished the art in June.

March 2012 saw Kevin Nowlan point out that the book had been listed at Amazon, in hard back, for release October.

Not long after this Bleeding Cool reported that Marvel would be giving Manny a new comic series in June 2012, entitled Infernal Man-Thing

Eventually Marvel went public with full details and it revealed that the two projects were in fact one-in-the-same: a three-issue limited series beginning in June, will present the final Steve Gerber Man-Thing tale, a previously-unknown story that until recently remained only a wishful thought in the hearts and minds of his devotees.Plus what must be the collected hard back edition in October.

The article from Marvel put a calm and friendly spin on the history of the book, overlooking the fact the book existed as artwork, solicitations, ongoing work for the artist, letterer, and probably a few stressed editors along the way for more than ten years - but let's not quibble. As Nowlan put it As to what Steve Gerber might've thought about his final Man-Thing story finally seeing publication, the artist feels he cannot possibly know for certain, but there's a definitely an open-minded wish there that the writer would be pleased. "I hope he would have been happy," Nowlan says. "Maybe a little annoyed that it took so long."
