THE THING COVER & SPLASH PAGE GALLERY - PART FIVE...
JOHN BYRNE did his best, but The THING's solo mag
failed to set the comicbook world on fire and fizzled out after 36
issues. Perhaps if he'd drawn it himself as well as writing it, it may
have had a longer run, but there's no guarantee of that. I continued to
buy it from start to finish, but apart from the occasional ish, there was
really nothing memorable about the series. Having said that, it's still
worth looking back on as an example of what comics were like
back in the early to mid '80s, art-wise.
Anyway, enjoy this glimpse into yesterday and, if you like
what you see, be sure to come back for the sixth and final part -
coming soon, on this, the finest blog you're ever likely to read -
whenever you've absolutely nothing better to read, that is.
