Fun Find Fridays: The Thing Pillow

Posted by on December 15, 2012 – 8:10 am

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. 

[media-credit id=90 align=”aligncenter” width=”290″][/media-credit]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!”
