Maleev's version of the Thing is far too inconsistent for my liking. The page of Ben charging into Mephisto is great except the arm and fist in the foreground really should be larger than the one in the background. Then there's the pic of Ben with his back to the reader. Too human looking. Small fists on hips. Narrow waist. Really bad. Really sloppy from panel to panel.
I do now recall the rabbit and frog clue. So its not likely its Doom's Mother. Perhaps as Reverend Meteor suggests its an alternate reality version. It may be revealed next issue, but with Bendis and Marvel these days who knows?
Strange's dialogue was off with the speaking in slang and the attempted humor with the auto zone remark. Suddenly we have product placement in Marvel? Just kidding. I hope.
I'm liking the human aspects of Ben in that panel. Even Kirby tapered Ben'waist a bit in the cover of FF#51. I agree I'd like to see his fists a bit bigger.
There is so much ground to be covered with the last issue of the series that I have doubts that all of it will be accounted for; the truth about his mother, and what the deal is with the General and the Latverian situation.
And maybe this Doctor Strange is really the Tony Stark SS we've seen a couple of issues back? The Autozone joke sounds more like him.
