Thing 4, page 5.

Artist: Ron Wilson
Inker: Hilary Barta

      The Thing series was really questionable overall, but through the first four issues it was remarkable. This page comes from issue 4, featuring Ben and Lockjaw aiding a family that was a victim of bigotry. Its a very nice, very moving story, and one of my favorites.

     Story aside, Lockjaw is a favorite of mine, and I really like the second panel here, with Ben with his arm on Lockjaw as they 'port in. I'm not sure I'm a big fan of the writing in panel three, though- "Panic scuttles though the mob on scampering lizard legs?" Excuse me?

     Quibbles about the scripting aside, this really is a very nice issue and I recommend it to anyone. It might be a Thing issue, but it should have been a Marvel Two-in-One "Thing and Lockjaw" team-up in my book.

     This was purchased through EBay in late August of 2004.
