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.

Anyway, you don't think A.I.M, is gonna give up that easy, do you? No way. Just because their space station got itself all blown up doesn't mean they're out of the game. But wait -- who's this surprise guest star? Is it a MAN? Is it a THING? Well, you see where this is going ...

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.

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!

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 the cards!

A Dame To Get Killed For Man-Thing appears along the "Legion of Monsters" with FrankenCastle (Punisher). He doesn't do anything, but there's a funny scene where Werewolf and Living Mummy are trying to get Manny to understand the humor of "Giant Size Man-Thing". When a widow hires Deadpool to avenge her husband and kill The Punisher, Wade Wilson follows a trail that leads him under the city of NY and headfirst into an army of monsters lead by the animated remains of his prey. What he finds is that FrankenCastle is already dead... but that doesn't make him any less deadly. Parental Advisory

Resolves the mystery of the Manny-mountain but there is no clarification regarding the dormant creature in #4, so best we can say is a connection with Man-Thing is suggested but remains ambiguous. I suspect this was supposed to be a straight cameo by Manny but events in Thunderbolts meant they had to inject some plausible deniability to avoid continuity conflicts.

Manny joins the team. Hidden deep beneath AREA 13 lies the clandestine headquarters of S.T.A.K.E.--a top secret division of S.H.I.E.L.D. housing aliens, mythical beasts, and all manner of extra-normal entities. Under the command of legendary soldier Dum Dum Dugan, these monsters step out of the shadows and defend the world against supernatural threats too dangerous for normal men! 32 pages, $3.99.
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.
