PART FOUR OF BIG BEN - THE THING COVER & IMAGE GALLERY...
Alas, DONALD DOGFLY makes his last two appearances in this latest The THING Is BIG BEN Cover & Image Gallery. Drawn by HUNT EMERSON, I don't think Donald has appeared anywhere since. It would be interesting to learn who currently owns the copyright, as it would be nice if Hunt could revive the character.
Looking back, the comic wasn't too bad, but the name was a bit naff and the masthead wasn't exactly eye-catching or memorable. It's interesting to speculate as to whether the mag would've enjoyed greater success if it had been called something else - something like, I dunno - POWERHOUSE, or something along those lines.
Now there's an idea! See if you can come up with some good names for U.K. MARVEL mags that might've resonated better with the readers. Go on - you know where the comments section is!
