MAN-THING sketch.

Here's a quick sketch of Marvel comics Man-Thing. Even though he is clearly nothing more than a rip off of DC's Swamp Thing his place in the history of comics is assured because of the fantastic double meaning his name gives to the titles of his books. The classic is of course the GIANT SIZED MAN-THING but WHO EVER KNOWS FEAR BURNS AT THE TOUCH OF MAN-THING deserves equal notoriety it is also worth pointing out that these titles slipped under the radar of the notoriously conservative Comics Code Authority.
And for all you Marvel Movie fans out there don't forget that along with SPIDER-MAN, X-MEN and the various AVENGERS movies Marvel also put it's MAN-THING on the big screen however it turned out to be nether big nor clever.
