    Man-Thingstarted pretty intriguing as a mini-series but ultimately morphed into a randomseries of events for the story to reach a ho-hum conclusion.  The art looks pretty, and can get trippy whenthe characters are in Nexus, but there's nothing special that make this issue orseries ultimately worth it as a whole to check out.

    There is some great art in this title. R. L. Stine seems like a good fit, but the titles best ideas happened early. The title started so strong and then just ended in a generic way. There was more reliance on comedy than horror which hurt the tale. There was a fun little twist to the end to give it a twilight zone feel that worked well with the anthology nature of the book. The second story was not the best of the backup stories, but still good and an appreciated addition. Hopefully Stine continues to dabble in comics because there is promise there.

    Marvel's endless disregard for a classic MU horror character since, at least as far back as, him joining the Thunderbolts continues and is glaring in this allowed canon interpretation and highly disagreeable ending on World of the Man-Things. Blecch.

    Why I bought all 5 issues, I will never know. Some parts of this book had me engaged and some left me scratching my head. Can the humor be anymore forced than it is in this book??? Th back up stories were the best part of the series. Besides the art, everything fell extremely short of expectation.

    This series is the Holy Bible of Dad Jokes. I admire Stine's ability to pack so much humor in, but "so bad it's funny" wears out its welcome fast.
