Giant-Size Man-Thing #1 (1974)

I’m not posting on most of the Giant-Size books on my site because (a) they’re usually irrelevant-much like annuals; and, more importantly, (b) I don’t actually have a lot of them.

But the Man-Thing specials were usually pretty good.  In this one, MT comes up against Marvel’s original bog monster: The Glob.

It’s pretty typical Gerber: Weird and random.  Glob is summoned by a group of mystics to take on Man-Thing, but in the process he finds a way to become human again.  Until the mystics take that away from him.

Creators: Steve Gerber and Mike Ploog
Grade: C+
