Todd & Joe Have Issues 11/16/17: the Thing #8

The Thing is the best. Whether as part of the Fantastic Four, recently a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy or an Agent of SHIELD, Ben Grimm is awesome. However, he’s been the star of dozens of mini series and solo series that never went very far, sadly.

This is a very busy, compressed issue as, in being cancelled with issue #8, it seems as though writer Dan Slott was given the opportunity to wrap up no less than five plot lines or stories in a 22 page comic.

The framing device of the issue a superhero Poker tournament held in Ben’s super fancy apartment. A virtual who’s who of heroes and by that I mean of the several dozen of folks in this book, I have no idea who the fella in the middle of this panel is.

And sadly, this was the end of solo series for Ben, for at least 11 years. He and the Human Torch are co-stars of the upcoming Marvel Two-In-One, which allegedly will lead to the return of the Fantastic Four.0

Any discussion, thoughts, feelings, criticisms of this week’s selection can be placed below in the comments section. As well as suggestions about future choices for one shot issues to add to our list.
