There's a deluge of Man-Thing at the moment; perhaps the Nexus of Realities has sprung a leak...


Thor: Ragnarok trailer plus...
thor_ragnarok_trailer.jpg - 13.9 KBFirst shot from the second trailer (released Jul 22, 2017) for the movie included a tall building festoon with character heads, the top one of which is Manny. So why should his visage adorn an building on a alien planet? My guess; he's been a past participant in the gladiatorial style fights which Thor and Hulk end up part of.

Hasbro Marvel Legends Netflix Series Build a Man-Thing
Marvel-Legends-Man-Thing-Build-A-Figure-300x231.jpgEach individual figure in the late summer 2017 wave of Marvel Legends, the majority of which are based on the Marvel Netflix run of shows, includes a piece of a Man-Thing figure which folks who buy the full set can make for themselves. It's a nice looking figure but will be pricey. No word yet on whether this means we can expect to see Manny on Netflix in the near future.

Man-Thing Vol 5
volume5_001.jpg - 20.1 KBThe New York Times broke the news that Manny will return in a series beginning in March 2017, written by R. L. Stine, the author of the "Goosebumps" novellas for children. For Mr. Stine, 73, writing the five-issue series is something of a lifelong dream. 'My first ambition was to be a comic book artist,# he said. 'I started doing these little comic books in the fourth grade: ‘Super Stooge,' the dumbest hero on earth.' Though he shared the stories with his classmates, he quickly realized he had no talent for illustration. 'I was terrible,' he said. 'I had no choice but to be a writer.'
The new Man-Thing series, with covers by Tyler Crook and interior artwork by German Peralta and Daniel Johnson, is inspired by the iconic horror comics of the 1950s like Tales From the Crypt, of which Mr. Stine was a big fan.
Marvel offered Mr. Stine several characters, but he quickly settled on Man-Thing because of his fondness for swamp monsters, which have been frequent characters in "Goosebumps" stories. Despite being a horror series - aimed at teenagers and older - Mr. Stine hopes to bring some comedy.
"I'm going to do a lot of action and a lot of great violence and make it creepy, but I'm going to make it funny at the same time," he said. "It's what I try to do in my books." In the first story, Man-Thing heads to Burbank, Calif., wondering why he is not starring in a major motion picture. In the new series Man-Thing will no longer be mute. "He can talk and he's very sarcastic," Mr. Stine noted.)

R.L. Stine: [Laughs] Well, you know, I tried to make the whole series funnier because he’s such a hideous character. He has to be maybe the ugliest character Marvel has, which is one of the main reasons I picked him when they give me a [list] of characters that they weren’t using and said, “Which one would you like to do?” and I happen to love swamp monsters and he was just so ugly I had to pick him. But yes, there is a major twist at the end. You know, like all “Goosebumps” books there’s a happy ending, they all have happy endings, but then after the happy ending, there’s something pretty terrible [Laughs].
