Treasures Abound

My monthly stash from the comic shop contained a series I'd heard was fun and considered worth a shot: the latest version of The Thing. The Comic Blog-o-Sphere talked it up, showering praise on writer Dan Slott. The shop had issues #3 and #4 on the racks, so I snagged 'em.

Issue #3 contained the following image:

Yes, that's right, it's a Robot Pirate version of the Thing. A Robot Pirate Thing.

Oh hell yes.

Ah, comics, where such a beautiful image can be a throwaway gag in a monthly title. Treasures abound in the four-color world.

I love Dan Slott, and want to have his babies.


  • You will be so happy you picked up Thing. It's the Marvel Two-In-One I've had living in my head for years. Slott gets it.
