This seems an awful lot like Swamp Thing's origin.

>>90528395
It's a throwback to Silver Age comics, when artists did all the work and writers just filled in caption boxes. It's actually pretty clever, since the last time Man-Thing had a solo was during the Silver Age.

For a minute I thought that was movie Man-Thing.

>>90528527

He had solo ongoings in the 80s and 90s, but they only lasted a few issues.
>>
>>90528521
Same basic origin story, debuted two months apart. Man-Thing was first, but two months is way too close for obvious copying
>>
I find this endearing, like an old grandpa trying to be cool by stumbling through trying to understand the Pokeymans. Then again I never cared for Man-Thing, judging by this thread people are pissed.
>>
>Marvel pisses again on Gerber's grave

This is a pretty funny contrast with Parker's Man-Thing in the Thunderbolts storytime. Wasn't much of a Goosebumps reader but the novelty of this is interesting enough. Feels like all the weirder books lately are stealth minis.
>>
This dialogue is atrocious.
Man, I've been wanting a Man Thing comic for awhile now, and this is what I get?

Damn you monkey paw
>>
>>90528206
I've noticed that when non-comic writers write comics they often want to use thought bubbles.

When Stephen King wrote something for DC he was putting thought bubbles in the script until his editor said "we don't do those anymore."

Thought bubbles have been uncool among professional comic writers since Alan Moore but you can see why fiction writers would like them.
>>
>>90528194
I like the narration so far.
>>
This was great. People complaining about the dialogue are fags. It's intentional camp.
>>
>>90530873
Fuck off, shill. Marvel is garbage.
>>
>>90528527
Bronze Age.

But yes, lots of narration + thought bubbles was Marvel house style when Steve Gerber was writing Man-Thing.
>>
>>90528582
And if it's the only thing he knows how to do, it'll certainly ruin the rest of his life. Sucks about the girl thrown overboard though.

I could see them revealing that this is just a movie in Earth-616, like they did with that 1940s Captain America flick and probably others.
>>
>>90528139
well this is dumb, I thought it'd be like in Thunderbolts were someone is there for him to talk to so we'll get widely different interpretations each issue but nope, they literally just went with we'll see his thoughts.

Seriously, how fucking stupid are Marvel Citizens? Like..... they're even being more stupider than they usually are

>Look! An honest to goodness Swamp Monster!

The back-up story is OK, but the main story is a little garish. Feels like they're using those few moments when Man-Thing would revert to his old personality as a justification for Stine to do his thing. Splitting Man-Thing in two does interest me a little, and gives me an in-story reason to go "NOT MUH", but I'm not crazy about it. I was hoping this would be more like the handful of GI Joe books he wrote, but he's clearly just goofing around with the book. That's fine, I guess - I feel bad for anyone who wanted classic Man-Thing, but it's still the best thing Marvel's put out in the last month.
>>
I'm kind of enjoying this in a corny way?

It's definitely not what I expected, but there's kind of a charm to the weirdness.

Where's your sense of irony and fun /co/? I wouldn't call this, "good" but it's fucking fun how asinine and goofy it is, I don't know if it's intentional but Stine always had an act for turning his own stories into farces since the golden age of Goosebumps.

You need to read more solicitations. We knew this would happen months ago. Save yourself the headache and just read solicitations from now on. Unless you're one of those "I'll give Marvel the benefit of the doubt and try an issue" people who I have no respect for.

Well this definitely feels like an RL Stine book. That is to say, it feels like it's probably intended for REALLY little kids.

Did NOT like this, but I don't think I'm the intended audience.

Didn't dig it. I get what they were going for with the narration style, but it just feels so at odds with the art (maybe if they'd adopted a more old-school coloring approach it might work), and Man-Thing being so chatty in general just rubs me the wrong way
>>

This seemed like a match made in heaven, but just didn't work for me. Didn't really capture the feel or weight of the character.

I liked the backup though. Reminds me of that scene in Looper.

It fell out of fashion in the late 90s/early 00s, replaced with caption boxes. Every so often a creator will bring them back or use them, but the companies prefer caption boxes. It's seen as less goofy.

There's probably other examples but the latest one I can remember is when Bendis used them for awhile in Mighty Avengers.

Yeah, not grabbed, but will give it another issue or two since it's Man-Thing.
>>
>>90542685
Not going to lie. I've tried to read the original Man-Thing/Howard the Duck books and I can't get in to Gerber's writing.

It feels almost too deep like everything is going over my head. Of course this new comics writing seems like just the opposite. It's easy to digest but I can tell it's not as good as the original.
>>
>>90530786
It's a very old school style of narration.
