Fun Find Fridays: The Thing Pillow

Columns, Comics, Fun Find Fridays, Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Fun Find Fridays is my series on the strange comic book related paraphernalia I’ve found at comic book shows, antique shops, swap meets, or buried in my closet. 

This post is a day late and exactly one dollar short — because I found this ever-lovin’, blue-eyed Thing pillow at, of all places, a 99 Cent Store a few years ago.  It’s delightfully tacky, but at the time I bought it for the nostalgia of then-recently passed Mike Wieringo, the artist that drew this Thing head (I presume).  A Grimm note indeed — but when it comes to napping, this pillow says only one thing: “It’s clobberin’ time!”
