    This is a great issue to add to the series. R.L. Stine does a wonderful job telling the story, even if there is a hint too much detail in the text. The artwork is phenomenal, and the creative team works so effectively in unison to orchestrate a really entertaining story. But you'll have to keep reading to see if Man-Thing can overcome his enemies and save Oldfather! What does fate hold for the swamp? Head to your local comic shop and find out! Read Full Review

    Man-Thingseems to have stalled while inexcusably going back on the progress anddecisions our hero previously made in the story.   I'mnot sure what happened from last month to this month but there are charactersjumping in and out of the title all over the place and the story in general just seems to havelost its footing in a race to a conclusion.

    There was an interesting set up with the Swamp going crazy and Man-Thing talking about needing to set things in order. Then we see the same thing from last issue where he finds that the Oldfather is missing and goes to look for him. Everything started to take a very strange turn from there that did not peak my curiosity the way they probably meant it to. The accompanying story was a bit weak as well. I enjoyed the first two books in the series so this was a real misstep. Hopefully it can get back on track.

    Well, at least the art and back up story are good.

    An endless recap, a single new plot point about an evil queen forcing Man-Thing into a gladiatorial battle, and a terrible B-story. In case you haven't had the pleasure of reading Marvel's shoddier comics from the early Silver Age, RL Stine is on a mission to recreate their shortcomings down to the last detail. Plotted not with creativity or passion but with laziness and an endless supply of dad jokes. The art is nice, but it can't distract you from the constant (and astute!) suspicion that this title will become an obscure footnote of crappiness ("Didn't RL Stine write a Man-Thing comic? Oh yeah, it totally sucked.") in a few year's time.
