Man-Thing: Marvel Halloween Monster #7

Through a combination of science and the terrible interaction of the powerful, mystical force known as The Nexus of Realities, Ted Sallis fell into the category of a creature of immense power, yet terrible curse, known as The Man-Thing (from Savage Tales #1, 1971). His failing was the experimentation over the super-soldier serum he tried to recreate; when his enemies learned of his secret research in the everglades, they burned him and his shack to the ground.

Recommended Reading: Essential Man-Thing, Vol. 1

The "Essential" series is the best way to get acquainted with some of those rare, less known, comic book characters. In this volume, you'll get a whole host of Man-Thing's strangeness, linked to the swamps and the Nexus of Realities. If you like other weirdness, Man-Thing has never failed to deliver. You'll also be witness to characters like Howard The Duck, Damian Hellstrom, and more. It's really a classic and a true mix of superhero horror!

This volume is the first known compendium of Man-Thing's basic stories. It shows off all the ones that explained what he was about, and collects Savage Tales #1; Astonishing Tales #12-13; Adv Into Fear #10-19; Man-Thing #1-14; GS Man-Thing #1-2; Monsters Unleashed #5, 8-9.

Man-Thing is one of the most interesting superheroes of all time, listed as #7 in The Top 10 Marvel Monsters of Halloween. There's just something spookey about the guy. If you're a fan of Halloween and like the monster crossover, check out this list, provided by TSL.
