  I get a strange kick out of weirdness like this, be it from a Dr. Strange or a Man-Thing title. I just hope this gets some more explanation/background very soon, or it was just too random, even for me.

  This book seems to be a whole lot better when Mike Ploog is on the art.

  I think the Buscema's art fits far better than the Ploog's one. Ploog was too cartoonish, and think that Manny suits with a realistic drawn.

  Most of this book didn't even star Man-Thing.

  Most Man-Thing stories don't really star Man-Thing. He's usually more of an observer that cracks some skulls when needed. The stories are rarely "about" him.
Manny's powers really seem inconsistent. Usually he can squish through a net without any issues, but here he can't and gets stuck in the boat. He can barely move because he's away from the swamp and completely dried out, but when he goes onto the pirate ship they say he no longer needs the swamp, but shouldn't he still be dried out and unable to move very well? And he obviously isn't dried out because he's so full of water that when he gets sent into space he is covered in a thick shell of ice.

  This was kind of a mess and a bit hard to follow. Maybe it'll be explained better in the next issue. It all seemed really weird, even by Steve Gerber standards.

2 stars.

  That's kind of the point with Man-Thing.
