FW Team-Up: The Thing and Doc Savage

Some team-ups can't be reprinted because they feature licensed characters who've flown the coop. That's the case of Marvel Two-in-One #21 featuring the Thing and pulp hero extraordinaire Doc Savage! The dependable Siskoid and pulp fan Rob Kelly get together to discuss the issue and restore it to living memory!

Highlights from Marvel Two-in-One #21, by Bill Mantlo, Ron Wilson and Pablo Marcos:
The Sky Cannon in two different eras; the story is bifurcated until the heroes find themselves in the same time.
The villain is revealed/created: Blacksun!
Ben realizes he's among heroes:
Every Thing story needs a moment where he uses his rocky mitts to clobber something.
The heroic pile-up proves too much for Blacksun.
An abrupt and cold friendly farewell:
Theme: "Batman: The Brave and the Bold" by Andy Sturmer.

Bonus clips from: "Jaws" by Stephen Spielberg, music by John Williams; "Cutthroat Island" by Renny Harlin, music by John Debney; "Doc Savage: The Man of Bronze" by Michael Anderson, featuring Victor Millan, with the "Doc Savage March" by Frank De Vol adapted from the music of John Philip Sousa.

Oh! Oh OHH!! I loved this one. I think I've still got it, but it's pretty tatty now.
This was my first exposure to Doc and I loved it! Can't read the original pulps though.
I might try em' again. Perhaps they've changed?
I had the next issue too, which was my first exposure to... no wait. That's jumping ahead.
Ahh. Happy days.
