R.L. Stine, the children’s horror writer, is headed to Marvel. The comic book publisher announced Stine will write an all-new Man Thing series beginning in March.
“R.L. Stine in the Marvel Universe – that’s an event in and of itself,” says Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso. “And is there a Marvel character more perfectly suited to his sensibilities than the monstrous Man-Thing? Stine and artist German Peralta are spinning a tale full of action, horror, humor and heart – one that’s sure to please R.L. Stine fans, Man-Thing fans, and new fans.”
MAN-THING #1 (of 5)
Written by R.L. STINE

Second story by DANIEL WARREN JOHNSON
Colored by RACHELLE ROSENBERG and MATT LOPES

Attempting to recreate the formula that produced Captain America, biochemist Ted Sallis was transformed into the shambling creature known only as MAN-THING! Now, having recently regained his ability to speak, Man-Thing sets out on a journey to leave the swamps once and for all. But when an ancient and mysterious danger threatens reality, he will have to choose between his new life and the place he once called home!
It seems like forever since we’ve seen Man-Thing in comics, so hopefully the book will fly off the shelf – but not in the possessed R.L. Stine story type way, but because people are actually buying the books so quickly.
R.L. Stine’s Man-Thing kicks off in March!
