Not sure how I like the way it ends an a cliffhanger. I figured we'd see how the thing got trapped in the ice, though we did at least see how its spaceship got destroyed.

Okay, so upon rechecking the comic it's pretty clear this is actually a completely different instance of the thing. The movie was in Antarctica, and this is Greenland. Just how many of these things landed on Earth, and why always in a frozen climate?

Carpenter's The Thing concept and vikings? Sold.

Was it your choice to accent the scream by having the mouth extend to his waist/groin? Either way, perfect way to start the book with that cover.
