Back in the early '90s, Dark Horse Comics published several comic book miniseries that were sequels to John Carpenter's classic sci-fi/horror movie "The Thing from Another World." The comics range from very good (the first miniseries) to pretty dire (the third and last miniseries), but if you're a "Thing" completist, the first two miniseries are definitely worth searching out.
From a wargaming perspective, the comics provide many ideas for skirmish scenarios, figures, vehicles, and terrain for games based on the setting. So, about 2-1/2 years ago, I promised Dan that I'd dig out my old copies, type them up, and post them here on TMP. Well, I finally got around to it.
