Thing Tuesdays: Clobberin' Time with Joe Sinnott Commissions

I found a couple of snazzy pinups by Joltin' Joe Sinnott featuring Aunt Petunia's favorite nephew!

This 1985 illustration is in full color and features a classic Thing opening up a can of whoop-ass with his favorite slogan.

Another 1996 illustration features a nice Thing head with a joke that I don't quite understand, but I appreciate the artwork nonetheless!  Nuff Said.

  1. I think "Pildorr" is a reference to an alien character in Strange Tales #94...I believe this story was the first time Sinnott ever inked Kirby. Pildorr is orange and kinda lumpy, so I guess someone brought up the story at a convention, and Joe commented on the resemblance.
