The MAN-THING meets Sun Tzu?
Plus MORE MAN-THING appearances!

So has the Art of War been reduced to little more than a Mud-Fight?
How about a muck-encrusted MOCKERY of a mud-fight?

That seems to be the case when ARES; God of War will face off against MAN-THING!

Art by Mike Deodato

Not anything major is known to write about at this time, but I'd be remiss if I didn't at least mention it...

MAN-THING is to be featured in DARK AVENGERS # 10.

Interview with Brian Bendis can be found on CBG site [HERE].

Not much info to be found there, but that's where the artwork came from.

*** EDIT / UPDATE**

I should ALSO have mentioned that MANNY is to be in:

PUNISHER # 12


Written by Rick Remender
Penciled by Tony Moore
Cover by Mike Mckone
Franken-Castle, Part 2
The Punisher is dead, so who, or what, is the giant patchwork monster skulking through the tunnels under New York? And what do those strange armored Japanese hunters tracking him want? Criminals are no longer being killed; they are simply vanishing into thin air. Listen closely, you can hear their pleas far below the streets. Those forgotten by society have a new protector. The Legion of Monsters has found a new leader.

DEADPOOL : MERC with a MOUTH # 6



Written by Victor Gischler
Penciled by Bong Dazo
Cover by Arthur Suydam
Head Trip, Part 6
Space, the Final Frontier. O-ver-ra-ted. Wade, the severed Zombie Deadpool head and Dr. Betty find themselves back on good old Earth, knee-deep in swampy goodness. Seems like Headpool is a little homesick, and everyone agrees the zombie virus should be put safely back into its own dimension. All they've got to do is find that damn dimensional portal. Anyway, you don't think A.I.M, is gonna give up that easy, do you? No way. Just because their space station got itself all blown up doesn't mean they're out of the game. But wait -- who's this surprise guest star? Is it a MAN? Is it a THING? Well, you see where this is going ... Is this enough preview copy to get you to buy the damn book, because I can go on all night?!

I like the idea of Ares chopping Man-Thing to bits with an axe, and then chopping him again when he reforms, and then chopping him again when he reforms after that, ad infinitum.

I'd like it better if the blade just passed through Manny and Ares kept swinging, getting madder and madder.
Possibly toss in one of the other jackasses taunting him with "impotent" jokes about his "axe" being weaker than the "other Man-Thing". Or something like that.

Really cheese him off good.
