"I just have always had a thing for swamp creatures... I just think it is horror character #1; it’s your basic nightmare, of this thing rises up from the muck, this hideous thing. It’s just always appealed to me. So when I saw Man-Thing was available to do, that they weren’t using it, I said, well, let me try it. Let me see what I can do differently with it." -- R. L. Stine

I'm feeling a little underwhelmed, here. From these scans, it seems like the protagonist mostly stands around narrating. I mean, big things are happening, but this guy barely moves and just sort of remarks on the fact that they are. A guy torn between an oath of loyalty and a personal sense of honor killed himself right in front of our hero, and all Ted can muster is a bland "huh, you don't see that every day."

Well, I liked the Behemoth's honorable sacrifice. It was so unexpected, and heroic -heroism being something I seldom find in Marvel and DC comics nowadays.

I liked the heroic sacrifice, but I feel like it was undercut by ex-Man Thing's lackluster reaction.

It works as " this idiosyncratic thing just happened, and we're not going to dwell on it because the thing itself is comment enough. "

It's very Ann Nocenti that way.

RL Stine might be a good horror writer, but of everything I've seen of his *ahem*, Man-Thing, he leaves a lot to be desired as a writer of said character
