THE THING IS BIG BEN COVER & IMAGE GALLERY - PART THREE...
We recently reached the end of a look back at the American version
of THE THING's own mag, but we still have a few issues of the British
incarnation to work through. It only lasted for 18 weeks so can hardly
be considered a success, but I've got to fill these posts with something
so it might as well be this.
This time around, I've only included the splash pages of the stories
(which were split into two or three parts) and left out the 'recap' pages
in the subsequent issues. Don't despair 'though - still here is HUNT
EMERSON's DONALD DOGFLY to amuse and entertain you.
I think it was an unwise editorial decision to utilise the issue's main
splash page as the cover illustration for #9, because not only is it an
extremely un-dynamic image for a cover, it tends to make blogs like
this look like they're 'stuttering' when the images are re-presented
30 years later.
Anyway, two more posts will complete this particular
series, so hope to see you back here then - if not sooner.
