Thing #1

Hmmm. Not exactly sure how i feel about this one yet. The art is pretty average (and atypical "big 2" IMO if you get what i mean) and the story isn't really all that to write home about either... but there's something about it.

The "cauldron" is a ridiculous villian but got a chuckle out of me (for some reason), and i gotta say i loved the panel showing Ben in his swanky new apartment wearing green Hulk fuzzy bedroom slippers. Nice touch! Throw in some guest appearances from a villianous mastermind that reminds me of Dr. Alloy (from the Goon) for some reason, and a martha stewart imitator (seroiusly) and we're moving right along...

We'll have to see where this title goes - i've always considered Thing one of my favorite Marvel characters so i'll probably stick this out longer than i should... B.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
