The Thing

The original film The Thing was a black & white film about a discovered alien in AntArctica, frozen in a block of ice. It was a plant type creature that hungered for blood.

When I was barely in my teens I read a scifi comic magazine that had an updated version of The Thing where the creature wasn't a plant and it did an impressive job of bodysnatching, trying to get the materials it needed to rebuild it's ship...

...loosely, the John Carpenter version of The Thing was based on this concept.

Here we go again....
