Solicit Synopsis

  • PART 1 (OF 3) What evil lurks in the brackish waters of the swamp? It's the return of one of Marvel's all-time favorite horror characters: Man-Thing! Just in time for the upcoming theatrical film release by Lion's Gate Films, this three-issue movie "prequel" is written by Hans Rodionoff, screenwriter for the Man-Thing film, and drawn by "master of the macabre" Kyle Hotz (The Hood). Set in the Bywater Swamp from the Man-Thing film, this self-contained story will enhance the movie-going experience with BRAND-NEW content we found lurking in the shadows of the bayou!
