Infernal Man-Thing

I've always been intrigued by the Man-Thing creature. My first glimpse of the character was way back during the Uncanny X-Men series of the 1980s. The creature becomes involved in a solo storyline featuring Cyclops (during his departure from the team) and ends up helping the mutant escape an adversary.

Now, the creature returns in June 2012 for a three issue limited series in a previously unreleased story written by the late Steve Gerber and featuring artwork by Kevin Nowlan. There are two variant covers (pictured above) drawn by the legendary Gil Kane (left) and Nowlan himself.
