    The art is fantastic, and pushes this book into territory Hotzs work on The Agency and The Hood continues its development here, very nice organic feel. Read Full Review

    BTW, Man-thing was created by Roy Thomas, Gerry Conway, and artist Gray Morrow. Credit where credit is due, bitches! Read Full Review

    The thing is, Man-Thing isnt Swamp Thing. His role isnt to restore or protect the Green; hes a shambling monster that burns the guilty, a kind of scourge, yes, but of human wrongs to each other not just to the ecology. Rodionoff is going to have to address the unique supernatural nature of this swamp creature if he wants the book to do more than just echo its forbears. Read Full Review

    Buy it if you a little bit interested in the upcoming movie - if not then only if you have the cash to spare, its worth a read at least. It doesnt set new ground, and if the terrorists is not the Man-Thing I dont know what I am thinking. I hoping this will shed some light on the character before the movie. Read Full Review

    In the end, theres a difference between saying a comic is bad and saying its not to my taste: and I can see how Man-Thing, whilst too generic, derivative, and slow-moving for me, would be likely to appeal to schlock horror fans everywhere. Its predictable, disposable entertainment in short, it does exactly what it says on the tin. But I dont think Ill be buying any more issues. Read Full Review

    Swampy sacrilege. No indication that this might not be 616 so no leeway given. Might've gotten a bit higher if marketed as an alt-reality vanity project.
