Man-Thing Observation

It's long been established that 1970s double-length Marvel swamp-creature quarterly Giant-Size Man-Thing had a pretty funny double-entendre of a comic book title. I assume it was unintentional, but who really knows.What hasn't been discussed, I think, is that 2000s Marvel swamp-creature compilation The Essential Man-Thing has a title that sounds like a philosophical treatise.

Didn't Dad have the first comic you mention?

Dammit, I will never be able to say that title again.

Dad had Marvel Treasury Edition #12, which was an oversized compilation of Howard the Duck stories, including the "Gorko the Man-Frog" story.
