You should all know by now that my favourite superhero team is the Fantastic Four, the founding family of the modern Marvel age and currently celebrating their 60th anniversary.
And my favourite member of the team has to be good ol' Ben Grimm aka The Thing, who probably carries more of co-creator Jack Kirby's DNA in him than any of his team mates.
This November, The Thing is getting his own eponymous six-issue mini-series, penned by acclaimed crime writer Walter Mosley.
...the story will range from the urban sprawl of the alleys of Manhattan to the furthest reaches of the cosmos itself.
In The Thing, a lonely evening and a chance encounter (or is it?) sends Ben Grimm embarking on a sojourn that will have him confronting - and battling - figures both old and new.
Featuring guest appearances from throughout the Marvel Universe, as well as precision artwork by Reilly, the next big thing will remind audiences why The Thing is one of the most popular and beloved characters in the history of comics!
