Marvel has announced that bestselling mystery and crime writer Walter Mosley is teaming with artist Tom Reilly (X-Men: Marvels Snapshots) to put the spotlight on Ben Grimm with a new six-issue limited series The Thing.
This fall, renowned storyteller Walter Mosley, known for his definitive and bestselling international work in mystery and crime fiction, brings his signature fiction writing style to a sweeping saga of Yancy Street’s favorite son in THE THING. The six-issue series debuts in November 2021.
Written by Mosley and with art by Tom Reilly (X-Men: Marvels Snapshots), 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! Don’t miss THE THING when it hits stands this November.
