Brian Lazarus’ tormented body and soul have finally arrived at their destination in the swamp, an old asylum where Brian had once before defeated
his emotional demons. Here he will face them again, and he will face the Man-Thing again as well. The Man-Thing is feeding off of Brian’s every emotion, even at one point appearing to be an ally, but as unpredictable as Brian’s manic mind is, so is the Man-Thing’s powers.
I immediately fell in love with The Infernal Man-Thing #1. The story is hectic, weird, and strangely fulfilling. The Infernal Man-Thing #2 travels even deeper into the extreme psychosis of a man struggling to control his sanity. His interactions with the Man-Thing prove almost bewildering, assisting Brian in his greatest time of need, but not without physical consequences. Brian has caused a rift in the swamp, and not until issue #3 will we finally see what his fate will be.
The story by Steve Gerber continues it’s strange tales route, and the art by Kevin Nowlan is breathtakingly eerie. This book just continues to blow my mind, it’s like something I understand but feel I shouldn’t. A conversation I can have with someone who speaks a different language, it’s certainly a special treat.
Back to the Farm.
