Characters Appearing: Man-Thing
Marvel Fanfare #9
Issue(s): Marvel Fanfare #9
A rock band is tempted by an agent of Satan to give up their souls in return for fame.
One of the members of the group backs out of it, and hides in the swamp. When the agent comes after him, the Man-Thing wanders through and accidentally helps out.
Pretty typical Man-Thing story. There's a good scene in the beginning where the Man-Thing is drawn by the musician's music and emotions while playing, briefly gets angry when the music stops but then immediately forgets why it was there at all and wonders off.
The back-up story is part of the Gil Kane/P. Craig Russell Jungle Book adaptation.

Joe Brozowski was later known as J.J. Birch.
Gray Morrow had been in comics since the mid-1950s, but never stayed at any one publisher too long. He didn't do that much for mainstream Marvel books.
This story may refer to the persistent tabloid-ish legends surrounding Led Zeppelin's rapid success in 1969-70, and the fact that bassist John Paul Jones never really had any misfortunes(compared to the rest of the band).
