Evil Geek Book Report : Special Edition – Undiesofwondy’s Hall-O-Reads : R.L. Stine’s ‘Man Thing’

Reader, beware, you’re in for a scare!

Welcome back, guys and ghouls!

Spooky season is in full swing, and now it’s socially acceptable for me to be talking about Halloween. For the record, I celebrate it on a year long cycle, and the Halloween radio station remains in my Pandora permanently, but I digress…

Today’s Hall-O-Reads is inspired by the horror tales of my youth. I honestly don’t think I’d be as into the horror genre as a whole without the existence of the Goosebumps series by R.L Stine. Not only did I devour these books, I tuned in to the T.V. show in all its’ cheesy, 90’s glory as well. (And to be honest, Slappy the dummy really does scare the snot out of me, even to this day.)

First World Problems: when people would touch your Goosebumps books and they would wear down the bumpy parts on the letters.

So when I found out that R.L. Stine wrote a “Man Thing” comic for Marvel, I knew I had to check it out for myself. I’ll start out by saying that I’d never read any Man Thing before, but this title was super accessible to new fans of the character, like myself.  The R.L Stine, reimagined Man Thing, has taken himself to Hollywood, in the attempt to become a star of the silver screen. However, his ghastly appearance does not test well with audiences, so he ultimately returns to his roots at the Florida swamp he came from. Although he appears to be a lumbering creature, Man Thing is actually quite sentient, and has even re-developed his powers of speech.

The story progresses, with Man Thing’s adventures to a Python World (you’re reading that correctly. Python World.) And even includes a surprise, twist ending, reminiscent of the Goosebumps stories I loved so much as a child.

I was super excited to read this book, and while I did like it, I think I had higher hopes for the book as a whole. The art is pretty awesome, and I definitely am glad I have this omnibus in my collection, however, I feel like the story was missing something, an unknown element of sorts, that I can’t quite put my finger on. I think I expected this to be a bit scarier, or to resemble some of the B-movies I love so much.

My hope is that we will see some more comics from R.L Stine in the future, as this trade paperback included some short comic panels of original Stine stories, that were actually a lot more inventive and exciting than Man Thing, in my opinion.

I do recommend this book to any fans of R.L. Stine, and I definitely love the idea and premise of Man Thing. I will definitely be looking for more of his stories to read in the near future. This book is probably even okay for some younger children as well.

Thanks for joining me for this edition of Undiesofwondy’s Hall-O-Reads, stay tuned for some more spooky reading suggestions from your favorite spooky, scary, Evil Geek, coming soon to a blog near you.

Be sure to tweet me @undiesofwondy , or leave a comment here for your Hall-O-Reads suggestions and to let me know what you all think of mine.
