The Bite of the Blood Brothers!
Caption: The desert sun burns blood-red in the southwestern sky — scorching sand, roasting reptiles — and quickly evaporating what patience Ben Grimm, alias The Thing, might possess!
The Thing: What a blamed revoltin’ development! Who’d ever think Ma Grimm’s boy’d be spending his days paddin’ across a desert so dry a witch’s kiss’d be wetter.
