Let’s have a look at some splash pages by Val Mayerik from 1972 and 1973 for some of Man-Thing’s earliest adventures. The book was published under the straight-forward title Fear. But, beginning with Steve Gerber’s Man-Thing stories in #10, the covers proclaimed “Adventure into Fear with the Man-Thing.” Man-Thing starred until #19 with old Marvel horror story back-ups. Then Morbius the Living Vampire took over until the final 31st issue, as Man-Thing shambled off to find his own title.
