Man-Thing Vs. The Demon


This might be a fun match up.  Two incredibly powered creatures that nevertheless have strong ties to humanity despite their outward appearances, one silent and passive and the other eloquent and aggressive.

Genius pairing Ross. I'd love to see how that fight would actually go down since fear is clearly not an issue for the Demon.

This is uncanny! I was just thinking to myself, this morning:

"I wish Ross would do a cover featuring Ted Sallis, Ben Grimm, and Alec Holland and call it... 'A Few Of My Favorite Things.' "

But, at least one-third of my wish came true. Thanks, Ross. :-)

Whenever the Demon shows up here, I've come to anticipate some well-crafted rhymes. This is no exception. And the story's title is a well-crafted twist on a well-used turn.

(Hm... I wonder... what if Etrigan were to turn his rhyming talents to rap?)

[Insert Macaulay Culkin impersonation of Ed Munch painting here.]

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

Bravo! I love the wordplay.

My favorite Etrigan victory: That storyline which guest-starred the Haunted Tank crew and their "friendly ghost", where they foiled a paranormal Ratzi plot.

My favorite Etrigan defeat: In the "Quiver" story arc, where Green Arrow gags him with a fire extinguisher arrow.

Batman: "I will never--NEVER--mock your trick arrows again."

Here's an interesting combination that may work with the this title
"Targeted by Etrigan, the Prince of the Vampires may not live til Dawn...
FROM VLAD ... TO VERSE". Gene Colon's Dracula and Jack Kirby's Demon.

I also would like to see Paul S.'s suggestion.

How about Ben Grimm and the Addams Family? "Cousin Itt Meets Brother Grimm," or "Thank You, Thing."
