Issue(s): Thing #26
The woman is no longer working at the circus, but the Thing does come across Vance Astrovik.
Astrovik has run away from home and does not wish to be returned.
The circus is also a front for the Taskmaster (he seems to like circuses!)...
...but he's not at all interested in fighting the Thing, and even the usual unstoppable threat of carnies is no match for Ben.
Taskmaster is actually captured off-panel by an undercover police agent. Vance winds up tagging along with the Thing as he goes after "Tarianna"; he'll be a regular in this series for about half a year.
After a few issues of wandering (which were fine too) this series is starting to get something like a direction.
