Perhaps the return of DC'sSwamp Thing prompted Marvel to give the spotlight to one of their classic, "Silver Age" characters, Man-Thing. Or maybe it just seemed like the right time. Whatever the case may be, Man-Thing is back and he's returning in his very own ongoing series from Marvel starting this July. Last time we saw him, Man-Thing was going, well, mad during Fear Itself and as a result begins to kill innocent civilians. Although Man-Thing was eventually cured of going on this "rampage," we haven't seen a whole lot of him until now. INFERNAL MAN-THING #1 will be written by Kevin Nowlan and feature the art of the late Steve Gerber. In this issue, Man-Thing will solve a mystery. Based on the images provided by Marvel, this comic seems like it will have a classic sort of a feel and will be keeping superheroes out of it. If this sounds interesting to you, then be sure to check it out when it hits comic stores next month. What do you think of the preview to the first issue? Is this something you are looking forward to?
