Wow, this is a downer. Grim stuff. Well told, and entertaining. Butů any story where everybody is murdered sure sucks the joy out of the reader! 7/10

  Well the title definitely didn't lie. Was a nice story that kept you second guessing what was about to happen...I really didn't see either of those first two kills coming. They did make the Man-Thing a little more useless than usual though, as he can usually figure out a situation without being overwhelmed by conflicting emotions.

  Elaine: Help me, Ted!
Man-Thing: [Hahaha, nope!]

  So... they couldn't tell that two of the victims were murdered with a knife that was still at the scene and instead went with the more credible explanation that they were victims of a slime monster.

  So we're supposed to accept that the Man-Thing managed to mutter his real name to Elaine and she's in love with him or something? I was waiting for at least some supernatural explanation and it never came...1 star.

  Downright brutal turn-of-events here, but the ending was completely pointless. One of Steve Gerber's very few letdowns.

2 stars.

  He did say they would be meaningless deaths, gotta give him that. I love the Man-Thing just standing there waiting for the dad to get scared though, that was so harsh and yet more fitting than Man-Thing just clubbing him over the head or something.
