8.  Man-Thing v1 #1, 1974 - After a ten issue run in another series, the Man-Thing finally warrants his own self-titled series. Continuing from Fear #19, this first issue is also noteworthy for Howard the Duck's second appearance. Frank Brunner illustrates this terrific cover, depicting the Man-Thing within his natural environment. Despite the mud and ooze, the color palette gives the monster a fine unearthly glow. Note also how the vines and branches form an oval-shaped frame around the character. This issue includes art by Val Mayerick and Sal Trapani. This is 1 of 1 Man-Thing issues by Brunner. /// key 1st issue / Top 10 Brunner comics / Brunner gallery

  1. an OUTSTANDING piece of art. i bought this off the stand as a kid and simply stared at the cover for what seems like hours. I would actually prefer this piece to his Dr Strange stuff, and that is saying something.

    And it should be said, for the limited nature of the color back then, this cover would not be improved at all by the use of modern computer color. It would be muddied up horribly and lose depth. This is an excellent technical example of what the colorists could do back then on a great day.
