Man-Thing is one of those characters I’ve always loved even if most of his comics aren’t all that great. So I’ve also got a soft spot for his mucky progenitor, The Glob.
We also learn in this issue that The Hulk isn’t the only gamma mutate who can transform. We meet, briefly, a gentleman named Sam Stearns who later transforms into The Leader.
Creators: Roy Thomas and Herb Trimpe
First appearance: Sam Stearns (Leader’s other identity)
Grade: C. I wanted to like this more, but I just couldn’t. It’s an average book. Frankly, it’s probably below average.
