Yeah, I'm sure nothing bad will happen to this guy.

(This is from 1960, couple years before Spider-Man, actually.)

The reason I'm storytiming these is, I was thinking about my favorite comic characters, one of which is Jonah Hex, and wondered who would be the Marvel equivalent. I'd heard of the Rawhide Kid but figured it would be nowhere near as gritty as Hex, until I found out about Kirby and Lee's version. So here I am posting it now.

>>77774689
And that's it for our first issue. After I get my coffee I'll be back with our second character.
>>
>>77774719
Here we go with the Marvel analogue to my other favorite character.
>>
>>77775078
However, it's not quite who you're thinking right now!
>>
>>77775103
>>
>>77774272
Marvel sucks when it comes to westerns.
>>
>>77775132
>>
>>77775078
Yep, Ka-Zar is awesome.
His brother has goofy villain name, though.
>>
>>77775142

>>77775136
RHK has been good so far. Not as good as Weird Western Tales but it was over a decade earlier.
>>
>>77775187

>>77775176
I do love Ka-Zar, but he's not who I'm reading this issue for.
>>
>>77775187
Well, yeah. But look at when it was. DC at least tried with All-Star Western. Maybe if Red Wolf sells silly good, we get more of westerns.
>>77775230
Oh. Well, I'll see in few pages.
>>
>>77775230
And if you didn't have it spoiled for you in the credits, you probably know who I'm talking about now.
>>
>>77775281
>>
>>77775341
>Is that an appropriate subject for a kids' comic, American?"
>>
>>77775382
Ah, Man-Thing.
>>
>>77775382
And here's the man- er, thing himself, Man-Thing!

Yep, my favorite DC character is Swamp Thing, and I know Man-Thing has never really reached the lofty heights of Alan Moore's bearded peaks, but Steve Gerber's classic run is supposed to come pretty close.
>>
>>77775442
And here we have guest artist Neal Adams with some fantastic pencils styled after the original black and white (or more often black and yellow) Man-Thing tales.
>>
Well, now we have Man-Thing in Howling Commandos.
Except he's not howling.
>>
>>77775482

>>77775523
He does cause others to howl. Who's writing that anyway?
>>
>>77775618
Man-Thing and Swamp Thing's origins really are dubiously similar, aren't they?

But as Roy Thomas said years later, the characters went in such totally different directions that it doesn't matter anyway.
>>
>>77774719
>You didnt give him a chance to shoot you, you criminal!
>>
>>77775618
Frank J. Barbiere From what I see, wrote bunch of Dark Horse titles and some Marvel work, like Axis Revelations.
It wasn't bad as setup issues go. Dum Dum is in charge of monsters and they go where regular agents can't go. Man-Thing is their version of Hulk, goes to action only when situation is out of control.
And Dum Dum is OK with being robot. As long as there are spare bodies, he'll keep up good fight.
>>
>>77775663
Weren't creators of Man-Thing and Swamp Thing roommates or something? I remember reading something like that awhile ago.
>>
>>77775663
>>
>>77775740

>>77775724
The story goes like this. Roy Thomas and Stan Lee came up with the original idea for Man-Thing, then passed it off to Gerry Conway for scripting, who was rooming with Len Wein at the time. Wein was writing his original story for Swamp Thing while Conway was writing his script for Man-Thing.

The sequence is: First Wein's Swamp Thing comes out, then later on Conway's Man-Thing comes out. Wein then writes a story for Man-Thing at Marvel, that inspires DC editorial to ask him to do a Swamp Thing ongoing. The ongoing retells his origins in a way very similar to the one Conway wrote for Man-Thing. So maybe it was a coincidence, maybe it was unconscious, or maybe Wein just wanted to continue his Man-Thing work over at DC. The fact is that Wein's idea did come first, Conway did write the origin first, but that both characters are clearly very derivative of the Heap.
>>
>>77775898
Oh boy. Slightly less convoluted than Cable's origin.
What matters is that both Things are awesome characters.
>>
>>77775898

>>77775918
Exactly. And after Alan Moore the characters had basically nothing in common anymore aside from being some sort of thing that sometimes lives in a swamp.

Also these damn street name captchas are fucking murder.
>>
>>77776002
>>
>>77776002
Well, where Alan Moore passes, it's usually left different. Imagine if he had free rein writing Spider-Man or something like that.
>>77776002
>Also these damn street name captchas are fucking murder.
Use Legacy captcha, you'll type words or numbers
>>
>>77776009
>>
>>77776052

>>77776049
Much better, thanks.
Actually JMS' Spidey (at least in concept) seems about what Moore might do. Or he might have Spider-Man become a gay rapist magician.
>>
>>77776095
The Alien 3 soundtrack is going very well with this.
>>
>>77776095
And Gwen is undead zombie witch who keeps trying to kill MJ.
>>
>>77776121
>>
>>77776145
Man I really liked this.

End of the first chapter. Be back tonight with Rawhide Kid #18 and Astonishing Tales #13.
>>
Btw, OP. In case you're Amerifag, http://www.amazon.com/Zagor-Terror-Mauro-Boselli-Writer/dp/1942592027
Not sure are more stories translated to English.

Hey, cool, Ka-Zar and Man-Thing.
