    The idea that this book is set under Marvel's "Startling Stories" banner does take some of the edge off what could've been a very powerful starting point, as presumably events that occurred in this miniseries won't make an impact outside the pages of this miniseries. Still, as a standalone tale, this is a very strong start as Evan Dorkin displays a wonderful understand of the basic theme that make the Thing such a universal character, as I'm sure everyone's gone through a moment in their lives when they've felt like the freak in a room full of bright, happy people, and Ben's sour mood is convincingly presented. The book also opens with a highly entertaining battle against the Red Ghost & his Super Apes, where Ben's role as the grunt/heavy-lifter on the team is well presented, as is his growing dislike of his having to play this same role again & again. The scenes where Ben lashes out at the world also make for some wonderful reading, as the book really conveys his sense of frustration. Read Full Review
