    The story for this Thing mini-series is a bit all over the place at the moment, but at the root of it all is an action-packed, rock 'em sock 'em tale. Read Full Review

    The Thing #3 forces readers to ask one question over and over again " Why? Why are things happening randomly? Why would the creators believe readers want to know about Ben Grimm's sex life? Why are police showing up instantly to harass our hero when that never happens in real life or any part of the Marvel universe? Why is Reilly's great art put in this book? Why does this series exist? Why? Read Full Review

Grimm battles the alien immortal Champion of the Universe (Tryco Slatterus), of the alien Elders of the Universe (first appears in Marvel Two-in-One Annual #7 1982). Why? I don't know. Ask that Walter Mosley guy writing this. Anyways it is a good fight. But this seems to be the least of his problems as some demon/extra-dimensional being wants to send Ben to the MOON!

    Mosley's script is all over the place with no real coherent narrative. I'm sure the answers will come(I hope) but man is it a weird and choppy setup up. The only reason I'm here is Tom Reilly's fantastic classic yet fresh art! Jordie Bellaire is a great colorist. She does well here and makes it so beautiful.

    Better than that abysmal last issue, but still pretty unengaging.
