Man-Thing was created in the early 70s to capitalize on the growing monster craze, but under writer Steve Gerber it became something quite different…experimental, surreal and very, very weird. Join me, Paul Matthew Carr, as I attempt to make sense of this cult classic and analyze each issue - putting it in the context of the time it was written and comparing it to the standards of today. The Nexus of All Realities – a Man-Thing podcast – a twice monthly dive into the bizarre. Oh…and I’ll probably make penis jokes.

Manny is awesome!

Anytime I can listen to a podcast about my favorite Marvel monster, I’m in! Paul does a good job spotlighting Manny!

Thoughtful and informative and fun!

I look for a lot of different things in comic podcasts. This one supplies virtually everything: Enthusiasm for the comics, personal and historical perspectives, humor and thinking about what the story is saying. A new episode is a joy.

Great Read Through of a Great Comic

I'm a big fan of Marvel's muck monster, and a huge fan of Steve Gerber, so discovering this podcast was a great find! This is for fans of horror comics, comics from the 79s, and, of course, Man-Thing. Each episode tackles an issue of a Msn-Thing story, analyzing the plot and themes and art, but also creating an historical context to help get beneath the surface. Well thought out and well executed. Highly recommended.
