It’s sad these Gerber-penned DDs aren’t better.  I loved most of Steve’s work, but on Daredevil he seems to really be struggling.

But here’s an interesting thing: Man-Thing predated DC’s Swamp Thing by a few months, but in this comic artist Bob Brown makes Man Thing look almost exactly like Swamp Thing.

Very odd indeed.
