Marvel have finally seen the light and are publishing the Essential Man-Thing. Written, in the main, by Steve Gerber, Man-Thing was one of the best series of the 1970s. With Man-Thing himself being impossible to write, Gerber was forced to concentrate on the supporting characters, providing them with a depth and motivation rarely seen in comics of that era. Truly great character studies. This tome includes all the muck-monster-that-walks-like-a-man’s earliest stories, including the majesty that is Giant Size Man-Thing!
