What comics has he appeared in?

For a couple of years Todd Dominik maintained an excellent bibliography of the appearances that Man-Thing has made in comics with dates and information on the storylines. Then Todd let me know that he had lost interest in comic books, and so didn't feel it was fair to keep the page on his site when it hadn't seen any updates in almost a year. He therefore removed the list from his site but graciously passed on the bibliography to me. I have added links to extra information based on my own incomplete collection of Man-Thing comics and other information I've found. I endeavour to keep up Todd's good work in recording the appearances of our favourite Muck Monster.

Items are sorted in the same order as the Overstreet Price Guide. Entries with a question mark (?) are rumoured appearances that have not been verified by either Todd or myself.

If you prefer a simpler A-Z checklist, then try this.
