So, why that image, above, for the very final "365 Days with Ben Grimm"?
Well, glance back at the very first 365 Days with Ben Grimm, and you'll find this image...
...which was the very first appearance of Mr. B. Grimm in the Marvel Universe. The first image is, as a bookend, the most recent appearance: the final panel in Fantastic Four #574, the most recent FF comic book to be published before the end of 2009. My point with this paneland I do have oneis that I've taken you from first to most recent, but it's not "the last" Ben Grimm. In other words..."And the adventure continues."
Here's to you, Benjamin J. Grimm: thanks for a fantastic year. See ya down on Yancy Street, big guy!
