The Thing.
Issue 8, pages 2, 3, 19.

Artist & Inker: Kieron Dwyer

     I acquired these pages on March 31st, 2007, direct from Kieron Dwyer at the Seattle Emerald City Comicon. I wandered by Kieron's area looking for a commission of his favorite Serpent Society character, only to hit him as he happened to be trying to shuffle the complete sets of The Thing issues 6, 7, and 8 into folios. He wasn't even trying to sell them, just organizing them, but it didn't take too much effort (though I had to have my wife hold him down while I ran for the ATM) to convince him to sell me these three pages. The poker game is one of my all time favorite MTIO bits, and so this spread is almost a grail piece. I count 30 characters in that two page spread, including long-time favorites Bill Foster, Lockjaw, Stingray, and Ms. Marvel. To me, this picture is almost an "end of an era" piece as it now stands, as it was only a matter of months before Marvel put Captain America and Iron Man at the throats of each other and every other hero (even killing Bill Foster) in their 2006 Civil War event. Looked at in that light, this piece almost makes me a little wistful for what comics used to (and should, in my opinion) be.

     When I attended my third or fourth Seattle Comicon in 2012, Dan Slott, the writer of the book, was announced as a guest. I brought the one-pager back with me, and got him to add his signature to Mr. Dwyer's -->
